i have a t1770 with a Model 2740 snowblower attached to the front.
i need some advice, in order to raise the blower off the ground when
backing up, i need to pull back a large handle, its a reach not too
mention a pain in the neck to do this each time. wondering if
anyone had some suggestions on how to motorize this.
What I have found is this:
The problem ist the force you need. If you do it with an electric actuator, that will take a long time or sucking very hard at your battery.
Frankly the problem is where the snowblower is connected to.
But when you are not in a hurry, you can use an actuator that moves the handle.
Maybe the better solution is that you adjust the handel to your needs, if possible.
Maybe that works. I have seen some pics with a quad and a winch driven snowblade. Maybe the winch is not so expensive, because it has just a few pounds to lift. But you should check the current consumption, maybe your battery will not last long because the generator at your engine is to small. At my yardman the generator has just 80W! And with light switched on there will be just a few Watt left to charge the battery...

Harbor Freight sells a 12v winch for $49. I have used it - plugged into the 21hp diesel GR2110 I own. Installed on my custom-made trailer, no problem 'dragging' implements on to the trailer. After all, it is 'intermittent' duty.
I have a BX 24 with a BX 2750C snowblower with the electric chute deflector model GB2513.
"Here is the issue: the chute deflector didn't work the other day so I just dealt with it the way it was. .............................I tried to move the motor shaft and found that it is froze up ...........
Has anybody had this happen and is there an inexpensive way to repair it?"
Clipped the quote to conserve on real estate
Yes, I've had that problem. Have the same GB2513 working on the blower accessory to my GR2110. Worked fine over past 5 years. Then, suddenly, last winter it would not work. Brought the whole outfit (tractor, et al) into the garage, calling it quits. Tried the GB2513. It worked. Assumed it to be temperature related. Next time it froze I warmed the motor with a hair drier. Voila! Probably water in the motor. The shaft cannot be manually rotated probably due to heavy internal gearing.
Your finding does help. Will delve into it on a good day whilst looking around for a 'backup' assembly.
