So, the JD 140 H3 had a lever not being used, so I found something for it to do. Been wanting to do this to my ford too, for a year and a half , and never got to it. So I did on the John Deere. Now that I know a little more , I will do the ford someday. The lgt145 ford has ports on the front of the tractor, like the John Deere, but only one set.

Love it!  That's a really good practical use of parts on something that seems to get neglected on these machines.  Good thinking.

That shute top really that important to move that often?  Seems unnecasary, but I've never had a blower, so not real sure. AND, is that cylinder Really Green when bought?   Must make them sell better? :D

propane1:

 

Great idea on the powered chute adjustor. But back when I had my JD 140 and the snow blower, I would have liked the powered chute rotation, like BigFlash talked about. Let us know if you do that.

Well GL, if you had ever had snow blowback in your face from a snow thrower , you would know that it's nice to be able to drop the top chute to keep the snow down, and, no it was not green, I painted it. Just a toy to do some work with and have fun.

Just be careful Joel , that cylinder can destroy that shute if met with resistance. For the rotator all you need is a small hydraulic motor and it would be AWSOME.
