Kelly nailed some great points on a blower. Blowers love to be loaded with snow and unless your in a higher gear with 3 to 4 inches of snow, it won't throw it far. I sand and repaint the inside and shoot of my blower every two to three years depending on use. I also use an automobile wax on the finish of the internals to keep the snow from sticking to it. You also want your snowblower to be COLD. taking it from a heated garage into a snowstorm will entice the snow to stick to it and limit it's ability.
As others pointed out, look for slipping of the belt, make sure the PTO clutch is not slipping and choose the correct PTO pulley.
