You need an intelligent operator...that's the problem. Also dry snow, not wet crap.

Is there sufficient snow available and being fed in? If there is only
a couple inches and the machine is moving slowly, snow won't get thrown
very far because there isn't enough volume to propel it. With mine
if I try to do just a couple inches at low forward speed, the snow
just dribbles out the chute or goes a few feet.

the deep stuff

Is the impeller spinning at full speed ? Sometimes what feels tight to your hand is slipping with a 100 Lbs. of snow pushed against it .
Is the engine running at full speed?
What brand is it ?

But at full speed, if you go slow, it stays at full speed, but only
blows it a few feet? I presume it's not real heavy, wet snow either?
