Decided to add hydraulic chute deflection to my snowblower. Starting out with wood patterns, and now that all of the geometry and dimensions are correct, I will proceed with the final metal version. I purchased a cylinder from Northern Tool which has a one inch longer stroke than the OEM Kubota version. Once everything has been tested, I will be able to measure for hoses. I plan on using my third function to control the deflection. I haven't had to use the snowblower yet this season, but it is already installed and ready to go. Hopefully I will complete this project before the blower is needed.
