With winter finally getting started here in SE PA, I needed to complete the final installation of the electric chute rotation on the Frontier SB1148 (same as SB1154). I needed to make it all controllable from the seat because I switch directions at each end of the driveway. The speeds could be a little faster, but this will work better for positioning control as I sometimes need to shoot the snow through very specific areas.

The joystick replaces the 12V aux power plug on the side operator console and I tapped into the power for that as it has a 10A fuse. The fwd/rev modules "just" fit into the void under the console cover. I wanted to make this a clean/permanent installation so I put quick connects at the back of the tractor so I can plug/unplug when I hook it up. I don't plan to have the snow blower connected unless I am using it due to the overall length (doesn't fit in garage).

I took some pictures along the way in case anyone had questions about how the installation went. Overall, very pleased with how it came together.

Where did you get the coupler for the motor-to-manual chute rotation control setup? I need one!

It is a 3/8" to 3/8" coupler. I drilled it out to 1/2" on the snow blower side to be the adaptor. I then used a 3-4" piece of 1/2" round stock to go into the screw connector with a hole for the connection bolt. It was plenty thick as I still have 1/4" of wall left.

Well, we got a "little" snow and of course, I needed to try out the new hardware!

Top job man. I too live in SE PA (Berks county) and this is exactly what I want to do with my SB1154 on my Gen 1 2032R. I want to put a cab on it next year and need to address the manual shoot rotation. Do you recall which motor and linear actuator you used?
