Hi this is Jon and in this clip we will be adjusting the scraper and the shoes. On our older snowblower we do have some feet and some wheels that are going to help you go along your driveway as you are blowing snow. Now these can be adjusted depending on how close you want to get to the concrete or depending on what type of adjustments you need to make for your unit. Now right on the other side of those small wheels in the front we have a bolt that goes through the wheel and into the body of the snowblower. To adjust it you just pull out the bolt and put it in a different hole. Now this is pretty basic and you can't really fine tune your adjustments it is really you put it here and you put it there. Now on our newer snowblower we do have this flexible kind of rubbery scraper and to adjust that we are just going to loosen up the bolts that hold it together and that will give us just a little bit of flexibility and movement in case we want to lower it just a little bit. Just make sure you tighten those screws back up.
