I am beginning research and a parts scrounge for the snowblower on my Bolens/Iseki G152.

I am looking to add hydraulic rotation to the chute, and add an electric actuator for the spout tip. The tractor has two spools of hydraulics available, one is currently being used for the lift on the snowblower. The second spool has two feet of hoses attached to it that are used for the deck lift, so I will need to run hoses to the front, use hard lines, or run totally new hoses from the valve.

My current set up:

I want to use a hydraulic motor for rotation, using just roller chain to connect to the chute. I would have weld on a sprocket tooth ring to the base of the chute.

On the spout deflector, I just plan on using whatever actuator I can find cheap, but mounting a sturdy two way weatherproof switch on the outside of the hydraulic control valve box on the fender.

Any hints on where on the net to shop for hydraulic stuff needed, or alternative ideas on hydraulic chute rotation would be appreciated.

Today's search on local CL turned up a used hydraulic motor that was expensive and turns too fast, and an actuator that is 36" long.

There are its of 36 volt 24"-36" actuators out there from the old big sat dishes. They do run on 12, but are slow.

Looking through CL, I saw a Steiner snowblower with hydraulic rotate. It's design is something I'm thinking about. I have a small (3" stroke) cylinder that came with the tractor. I wonder how much stroke on the cylinder I would need to get 200° of rotation?

After trying out a couple different configurations, I think the stroke on the hydraulic cylinder I have laying around is too short. I can only get about 45-60° of rotation each way from centered with what I have.

 

Still thinking.

I am considering trying for a hydraulic motor for chute rotation. What rpm should I be shopping for?

Slow!! I sure hope you have something to slip the motor, cause them slow ones have tons of power and might tear things up if you have a OOPS moment..... A window motor works awesome... Surplus Center had some for cheap $.

I used a window motor out of a Chrysler van on my Bolens blower.  It has that same worm gear set up as yours.  The mopar motors are non grounded, using a simple polarity reversal for direction change (2P/DT momentary, center off switch).  Works great & the speed is just about perfect.

Will try to post pics tomorrow.

Still thinking, the chute rotating every time I lift up is tiresome.

What you have to drive the shoot is nice and safe. All you need is a drive for it. Hydraulic will be expensive!! I would go electric ! Also hydraulic motors that turn slow are very powerful and could easily tear that blower shoot up...
I motorized my shoot on my Fabco/ Craftsman blower fitted to my Ford by using a powersteering motor assembly from a chevy cobalt.
The same thing could be done for your Bolens unit with relative ease. The Bolens shoot turns easier i think then mine and could easily use a window motor type drive. Surplus Center has all kinds of options cheap.
