I've noticed that on the 110(SF)/112(SF)/120/140 that there are these holes in the side of the dash tower... I just can't think of what they would of been for... Anyone know?

Dane,

They are for the snowblower handle, mounting bracket. There is a half twisted piece of steel, that hooks into the holes, and it helps to support the snowblower handle that turns the chute.

Oh... That makes perfect sense... I don't have a blower, or have seen one close up, so I never really was able to tell. Thanks. I learn something new every day.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you are wrong! Those are for aerodynamic purposes... :cowboy_shooter:

I bet the Peanut Gallery could come up with other uses for it. How about a mount for a portable spot light?
