    Question snow blower pictures

    Does anyone have pictures of their snow blower mounted ? I'm trying to figure out how to route the cable for the chute control on mine. I have a 748. the chute control is on the left side of the tractor. But there seems to be an abundance of cable, just hanging around. Is there supposed to be a bracket somewhere on the blower or the quick mount to hold it?

    I don't have a 748 but I have the same issue with the remote spout control on my 2720. I added an extra hose support loop up on the QuickTach so my cable runs through two support loops between the blower and control handle.

    I still have a little bit of extra cable right at the blower but it doesn't seem to hurt anything. I have seen guys installed yet another hose support guide in one of the holes on the top of the blower side plate.

    Even though my tractor is different I hope this gives you some ideas.

    As long as the slack is run properly, supported properly, and not bent at a 90 degree angle I wouldn't worry about it. Those cables need plenty of slack and large radius bends or they'll not work properly, or at all. Spray the ends a bit with WD-40 once in a while to keep water out and the piano wire sliding with ease.

    I'm going into my 5th year with the remote spout control and it still works very smooth and I have never lubed the cable. I've been a bit hesitant to spray anything on it for fear it may freeze. You would think WD40 would be okay but last winter I sprayed some WD40 on the carb throttle linkage on my Ariens mail getter tractor and it froze up on me when the temperature got down into the low teens and I could not move the throttle lever. I ended up cleaning it all off with some brake cleaner spray and it worked smooth after that down to zero degrees.

    PB Blaster is an actual lubricant. Stopped using WD40 years ago. Great for Water Displacement, terrible for lubrication/rust penitrant.

    You need to use a graphite-based lubricant.

    Going into my 4th winter here, and I've never lubed it either and during my test run on Monday, it works still as it did on day one.

    To the OP, I don't have a pic of the cable routing and I have my blade mounted now, not the blower. I have a hook on my front Quick Hitch bracket and another on the frame of the tractor near the front wheel. I just come from the control mounting bracket down through the two hooks. Any extra is between the last hook and the chute. I've never had any trouble and there is enough slack to allow for full rotation of the chute.
