Picked up a tall chute blower

Recommended Posts

Nice work as usual Denny! :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

What are your thoughts/concerns about travel/limit stops? Or do the actuators just stall out?

Thanks... I'm not sure if they stall out or not, I'll just watch it when I use it and try not to take it to the end of it's travel. We'll see how that works.

i want to put a actuator  on my cute defector, it's on my to do list before winter. i already have an actuator of an old sears tractor I parted out several years ago, it had gotten misplaced and couldn't find it but I've got it now just have to get it installed and wired up.

You're probably right, Mike but we're about due for some. Last year we didn't get enough to cover the ground.

None last year, so this year we will get it. I took the cab off my 520 for some needed repairs to the tractor and have to replace a pulley on my snowblower that I sole off of it for another project. Since I won't have the 520 done and have dillydallied around about replacing that snowblower pulley, probably will get a blizzard or two. You can thank me later Denny.

I busted my butt last fall , repaired the blade after some genius bent it into a pretzel and topped it off with some buggered Super Missel Weld 100 welds (nearly impossible to grind off) , got the D-180 all ready to go and got one decent , but wet as heck snowfall . That was it . If I'm not prepared , it will be butt deep...rule of thumb in Illinois .....

 A few days ago I added the lower chute deflector to my blower. My blower is a 1995 model 79360, serial 5902068, the lower deflector for it is part # 94-2997-01 which Toro says is NLA. I ordered a deflector for a 2001 model 79360, serial 2900001-  part # 94-9787-01 hoping it would fit and it bolts right up. Thanks to "MalMac" for all his help on this.

I home built my lower deflector out of .080" thick 6" exhaust pipe, IMHO it does make the snow fly farther first on the SS and then on 2stage, Jeff.

You’ve got a good eye, Tim. 😅. Now, if I just had a cab.
