Blew out a couple driveways tonight and the cable that controls the chute flipper decided it had done it's time.:wallbanging: Looked up new cable from Deere and they want $97.00 for a new one. I have read a little bit that guys have replaced this cable with and electric motor. Has anybody done this or familiar with the idea.

Thanks Larry, I am toying with trying something like your set-up. How long have you used this set-up

sorry to hear about your breakdown. Do you think you could find another cable from a cheaper source and adapt it. I know that hydraulic suppliers sell cables for remote control of valves that may do the job. Electric would be nice though, for sure.

Darn the luck, snow finally gets on the ground and then it breaks. Good luck with the repairs.
