Craftsman 2 Stage Snow Blower - Not Cleaning Well

Help. I have a new Craftsman 26" 2 stage snow blower. The skid shoes are set very low ( casing is just off the ground ) but it still doesn't clean very well. Leaves behind 1 - 1/2" of snow. Please help. What can I do?

Verify the skids are set so the scraper bar on the auger housing is one eighth inch off the ground. If this is already the skid location, your ground speed is too fast when snow blowing. I see 4 options:
1- Select a lower ground speed.
2- Pull up on the handle bars to keep the skids on the ground.
3= Add a weight to the auger housing to keep the skids on the ground.
4- Pay someone else to do it.
Good luck.
