Must not be cable cranked if you can go 360* .
Probably should have stated manual cable cranked.
Just curious how they usually come from the factory or
If I'm missing something and couldn't find any detailed pics or
info from the manual.

Won't another wrap of cable give you more more rotation? You just don't want to aimit at your face,

For those of you with the manual cable cranked shute on your 3pt snowblower
what is the range or angle of motion on it 90* ? 180* ? more ?
<<< >>>
Our manual crank, cable operated rotates just a bit over 180`` because of how the cable spools up or down the crank bar depending on which direction you crank...

I'm thinking of adding a bit of skirt on either side of the top angle deflector, like out of an old rubber inter tube as there is always snow that blows back on me regardless of angle.. even blowing strait away behind me it seems..

My Canadian Made Farm King with manual chute rotates 240 degrees.... almost enough to pucker each time chute spins to its max.
It has fixed stops so no way to turn it more regardless how cabling is made.
