Last year that cable to rotate the chute just pissed me off and had to do something about it
This year I took a 24v permenant magnet wheel chair lift for parts and mounted it on the blower to rotate the chute
The first thing to do was take apart the lift, make a bracket for it to bolt onto the blower where the cable wench was mounted.
Made up a adapter to weld a 14 tooth #40 sprocket onto in order to mount on motor
Used a #2040 master link and attached chain to chute where cable attached.
Wired up the controls from the lift and away she went
Now I can rotate my chute by the push of a button sitting comfortably
Chute even rotates in the direction of arrows on control box
