Yes go with the chain and paddles like how I built mine, I could use it year round with no issues.

 Do you have a grate for chips and saw dust to fall through or do you find that is even a issue? I was going to put one on the apron made out of 1/2"X 18" round rod laid out 2" apart, but it looks like a good place for wood to jam up, and if i do this need to make some changes to my drawings some how.

No I did not build it with bars in the hoper. My splitter had the table grate so all the mess was eliminated by that. I did use a rubber flap between the hoper and the bottom of the conveyor troth this prevents wood from jamming between the hoper and the paddles.

I keep a jug of windshield washer fluid on hand in the winter to spray the bottom side of the belt.  It cures the slipping  :)  The belt should have rubber cleats molded into it to keep the wood in place.
