Found this this morning. Don't know if anyone has used them but they have lots of stuff. I was looking to power the chute deflector on my Honda snowbower. I did find that John Deere has a kit to do some of the smaller blowers that they get from Frontier. Awaiting a price to see if that route is affordable. The kit has everything needed the way it sounds. Thought I would put up this link as there are other applicatons used with garden tractors.

Thanks for the link. I have been thinking of doing an electric one using a 12volt portable drill as a motor. Haven't gotten any further than thinking about it though.

I always liked the prices I found on https://www.surplusc...atname=electric , but your link shows fancy and special actuators.

I looked at those before. Problem is they're not sealed for use in wet locations. They do sell a rubber boot for them but not being a sealed unit adding a rubber boot doesn't make me feel comfortable using one in a snow storm. Maybe it would be enough, don't know.

I wonder if that spray you can put on boots would work to seal something like that or if you would have to spray it before each use.  Wouldn't want to buy one to find out though.
