Hi, I thought I would share my design of the electric rotation as I have not seen one done just like this.
Would I bought the tractor I opted out of the rear hydraulic remotes, thinking that for the upgrade cost it would just not be worth it for me, so now that I wanted to rotate the chute, it would cost me around 1000 at least to get the remote and the hydralic motor/ lines for the snowblower.
For $30 I now have a very nice working 12v set up.
Snowblower is a new frontier 1154, I pretty much attempted to copy the way the hydraulic motor is done.
So off to princess auto.
The motor I decided on, for a power seat
For the sprocket, I traced the pattern from the chute sprocket onto some cardboard, then just tried to line up the teeth the best I could.
I used a muffler clamp around the motor and bolted up through existing holes on blower
Made a little bracket for the switch to mount to rops tower and installed little dpdt momentary toggle.
For power I am just plugging into the 12v outlet.
I am very pleased with the operation, maybe a little bit too fast bust the switch provides good control.
Haven't timed it, but I'd say it's not much more than 1.5sec lock to lock.
Let me know what you think!
