I suggest to point and thin the sprocket to help break the ice buildup.

Thx ole'George. We are in the test section, but I'll reply all the same.

I do agree with your thinking that the sprocket needs to be thinner. It may be an optical illusion because of the increased diameter.

The original sprocket is 12t. I made mine 20t for clearance of the motor. The sprocket thickness is identical to the original. (0.200") Unlike some others, this runs along the same center line as original to keep full locks the same left to right and the motor is less in the stream of flowing crystalline di-hydrogen oxide.

I've toyed with the thought of powering mine, either using a modified wiper motor, or a small hydro motor I have.
Electric would be easier, but as the years roll by, I seem to want to do less
mods.
Sitting in the heated cab, I don't find it all that difficult to turn the handle to angle it ----yet

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
