Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

Greetings! This is my first post in a long time as I just purchased a Case 214 after i sold my previoud collection. The unit has hydrualic lift and came with a 44" deck, 38" blower, and a snowplow. Paid $200 and it only had a bad coil! Attached is the only picture i have, muddy because the auction site was muddy. More pictures will follow.

However i plan on doing alot of snowblowing this year trying to make an extra buck and i want to install an electric rotation and angle so here is my question to you guys; What rpm rotation motor should i get? And what size/throw actuator should i get for the angle? Also has any one made an electric angle blade? If so how did it work out? Thanks in advance!

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

I have seen a couple of chute rotators made from electric window motors. Check this website and YouTube.

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

I know Warn makes an electric angling setup for their Provantage plows (and perhaps for other models), but it's not cheap. And I looked at various actuators to rig up to my plow, but the ones that can support 400+ lbs (which I expect my plow to have as a load on it) move very slowly [as in, it would be faster for me to walk to the plow and manually adjust the angle]. But chute angle/rotation don't see those large forces, so you can use lighter-duty, faster actuators...

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

I use 2 seat motors I got from Surpluscenter.com for $15.95 each. One rotates the other runs the deflector. They are cheap and easy. They sell motor reversing switches or you need DPDT. If that DPDT is over your head, you may struggle with this project.

I know you are going to want pictures. They got lost when photobucket decided to charge for hosting.

To run the deflector up and down you tap the traveler nut through onside at 1/4-20. That gets attached to the chute deflector with a bolt from the inside, a nut that will tighten to that bolt from the outside after you screw the bolt into the traveler nut. The seat motor is attached with a single long bolt in a place where you will get the range of motion you want based on the length of the seat motor travel rod.

For the rotator, weld a loop on the end of the seat motor that is just like the one on the handle. Then mount the seat motor to the lift bar using a hardware ubolt and bracket.

Clear as mud?

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

Makes total sense to me old buddy, but I'm also the guy that added power steering to Case 646 loader tractor..

A little light reading for you.. :-)

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

I will be doing the same but different. I am going to use the steering quickener. I had a chance to try one installed on a 4016. It was amazingly easy to steer. And, if it can fit in the tower of a 4 digit tractor, it can fit in a 646. Before that, I had not seen a steering quickener in person. They are smaller than I thought they would be.

I have a 75 646 that needs a complete rebuild. But, it is a good tractor overall. The Onan is certainly tired. But, I like to run fresh engines anyway. None of my tractors take oil before it needs to be changed.

On topic, I posted some pictures of the deflector setup I have on Facebook in a Case Colt Ingersoll group. I have no idea how to find it, though.

Re: Electric Snowblower Chute Rotation

case13 - Here is a link to the motor I used on my M84 Snowcaster for chute rotation: https://www.sciplus.com/car-seat-12v...-motor-49248-p
I've included a pdf file of a chart I made up to help me decide what rpm motor I wanted:

Here are pics of the caster with the seat motor installed using a bracket I made to support it:
