    A few times this fall while using my 10 HP Little wonder blower I reached down to change the chute from blowing sideways to the front and couldn't help to notice just how close your face gets to the muffler while switching chute direction with one hand and holding on to the machine with the other hand....Anyone get burned yet?

    Funny you should mention that! I've often wondered the same thing. When I started this morning it was only 38 degrees and the heat felt pretty good. It would have made for a bad day had I melted my face, though.

    You are suppost to kick it with your foot. That is what I have been doing since I got mine. I don't feel like bending over. A little tap with your foot is all it takes to flip it.

    Boy you must be pretty flexible if you can hold back a full throttle 10 hp blower in the front chute position and reverse kick that chute closed to the side.
