Syd,

Nice video capture! Thanks for sharing it. Looks like that X300 handles snow thank you very much quite nicely. :thThumbsU

I am truly impressed! Your set up does GREAT at blowing snow, and your technique is perfect, keeping the blower pretty full so it works good.

Hey that was great. The x300 did a good job in the deep snow. The only question I have is how did you get the wife to stand so still? :sidelaugh

Great video! I always wondered how well that series would do. Looks like you got it setup right using chains and rear weights for traction. slkpk

Nice video - thanks.

Looks like you have up and down chute control on that. Does that come with that blower?

I guess I've watched too many youtube videos, because I kept expecting something really bad to happen like a big road plow come by and take the blower off or something.

That's a great video. I've never physically seen a snow blower. It does look Irish coffee cold and thats a good thing :)

Attention Mrs. Varmint!

Reasons for buying a snowblower:
1. It's cool.
2. We won't have to pay the landscaper.
3. It's cool.

Thank you, Syd, for providing evidence of points 1 and 3.

I made this a "sticky" thread so it will stay on top for a while because you are right in that we don't get to see these machines work in the real world too often.

Yes, it is included with it.
please look at the picture below; you can see the chute left/right direction control (gold color) and the up/down control (silver color). To use the first one, you do circles with the lever. For the up/down control, you turn the lever 1/4 turn counterclockwise to unlock it, then you push or pull it to move the chute. Finally you turn it back 1/4 clockwise to lock it.

:ROF


Thanks all for your comments about the video. As soon as we get a real load of snow I'll make some more.
Also thanks for making it sticky ! :)

The video has been taken with the same camera than my pics. I transfer it with a USB cable to the macbook pro :)

Hey it looks like you've done that before. I use my blade more than the thrower on my 345 here in Maryland. When I do need to put the thrower on I always turn myself into the abomiable (sp) snowman. Then I remember, ALWAYS TURN CHUTE DOWNWIND!!!!!!
Have a great day!

Does the up and down chute control seem to work well for you?

If it is a good design, JD should offer it as an add on for the larger units like my 59" blower. It would require a longer cable. Or possibly it could use a hydraulic cylinder.
