To keep yer fingers/hand out of the chute while in operation.
---It is a safety thing.
Not many around, most folks removed them.

I agree with George. They are more of a "pain in the a$$" when wet snow plugs them up all the time.

Thank You ! Wondered if it was something scientific ,like to straighten the snow stream. But fingers for finger protection makes more sense.

It’s called a “deflector guard”.

I suspect they are also there to help slow down larger hard objects that might get thrown out of the chute, and also to break apart the snow a little so it spreads out better.

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.
