Gotta admit the older I get the less I like climbing off a tractor for anything, adjustments, equipment changes, gates, cutting baling wrap, etc  Don't have a blower but I see the guys with them often getting covered in snow so if this avoids you looking like the "abominable snow man" go for it :thumbs:

I like anything hydraulic. That hood does not open and close on its own...yet.

Nice work Noel! I was going to do the same on mine, but couldn't find a cylinder cheap enough.

Looks great Noel. Good ole Princess Auto. I remember buying go cart parts from them by mail order back in the early 70s. Having the stores locally is great.  Did they make the lines for you as well? I find their line making service to be first rate. Reasonable prices and they clean the lines after they are made to make sure there is no debris in them.

This tractor had the rare option of front hydraulics. So just hooked to the front ports. Did the same on my John Deere 140 a few weeks ago. Another thread on here some where about that.
Princess auto is here , but not opened yet Brian. So I got the hoses made at the Massey ferguson dealership. The cylinder I had for awhile. My son got two while he was in Moncton last year.

We don't have a local Princess Auto so I order what I need from the flyers, and everything comes in the mail. Post office won't accept anything over a set weight, so I give P.A. my village office street address and it is delivered there. Wonderful service and the village office girls are very understanding about such things. Gotta love living in the outback of rural Saskatchewan!

I will say if the extra hydraulic connections & cylinders are available on your tractor this can be a nice option. On my tractor I do not have this available so I found another solution.

There is an extra part to the equipment that is shown here.

I put this pin on the hood for use with this handle.

It works this way so I do not have to get off tractor to make this adjustment.
