If you are having trouble with the ION8024's preformance in especially heavy or wet snow, you can try a number of things to improve its preformance:
1: Take it slow, and let your machine do the work. Keeping your machine in speed one allows it to really chew up the snow and prevent clogging.
2: Taking the snow half a drift at a time will prevent the machine from taking on more than it can handle, which should prevent over exhertion and clogging.
3: Make sure to tackle the snow before it has had a chance to freeze into ice.
