    Chute Rotation Wire Failure, 47 SnowBlower

    Not sure what went tonight during snow cleanup. I have a feeling one side of the wire slid out of its holder. Will find out more tomorrow as it is dark and cold. Any ideas?

    At this point it is tough to offer any ideas or suggestions without additional info or photos. I assume you are talking about the 47" snow blower listed in your signature?

    The correct spelling is "chute" in case you want to search, I'll correct the title for you.

    The manual shows how to properly wrap the cable. Deere really loves their cable
    Get a new piece at a hardware store.

    I agree. $31 for a 7-foot piece of 1/8-inch cable seems pricey.

    Note that the JD OEM cable is 7x19 strands which is super flexible. A lot of cable sold at hardware store is 7x7 strands. You can get a 100-foot roll of 1/8-inch 7x19 316 stainless cable on Amazon for $27.50.

    It's a good idea to check the tightness of the attachment that keeps the cable tight.. I noticed mine had slipped and the chute didn't rotate equally so I had to adjust the cable.. Save yourself the headache of rerouting the cable and tighten it up every now and then. That's a good reminder to all who have these blowers by the way.

    This is a handy and noteworthy post.. The 7x7 will last about as long as our summers here in the northeast!
    In fact I just ordered it from Amazon, this kid is not going to be caught during a snow storm without it. This was the only thing I don't have duplicates of for the blower that could shut me down, and I never thought about the cable breaking!
