Its my buddy's. I have not looked at it. Says even in light snow. Is it the rubber auger ends or some other adjustment. Belt?

I would check engine rpms first, then the belt for wear and tension. I think its going to be the drive belt worn out most common on these units.

Another possibility: Does he keep it in a heated,or warmer then outside temp, garage or outbuilding? If the unit is warmer then the ambient temperature,snow will stick.

They also manufacture a spray that keeps the snow from clinging to the unit. Its a normal issue in that most keep their blowers in a heated garage and then head right out making the warm blower and the cold snow stick together. I also agree to check the belts for wear if the blower is not throwing the snow very far. A two stage at high rpm's should throw it a ways.
