Searching for a electric lift kit for my 99 Craftsman 40" two stage blower. Recently hurt my shoulder, and even with physio I may not be able to lift this sucker manually anymore. No luck searching and thought you knowledgeable gents may know where to get one, cost, difficulty of installation, etc. Thanks. If it matters, the yard tractor it fits on is an 07 Craftsman ys4500, 22 hp.



Edit:  brainstorming this problem, and was wondering if there was any reason why I couldn't attach this portable winch to the right side, under the manual lift handle? It would also be handy for when I got stuck...whaddiya think?

Unless you have a tractor junk yard nearby, the best shot at getting the lift before snow flies would be Sears. Check the yards behind repair shops too. Can you rig up an electric winch to lift it? Good Luck, Rick

Got the Sears model # for that? Sears may still have one or at least what all comes with it.

A linear actuator would do the job and be easy to install, if you wanted to go that route.
