   Ive been wanting to add electric controls to my snowblower for a while now. Last year i modified this Berco blower to fit my Ht20 with the 2 cylinder kubota diesel and it performed phenomenally but was lacking easy chute adjustments.

I ordered a power window motor, a 4" stroke linear actuator and 2 DPDT switches. Since i no longer have a choke lever i decided to put the switches there with a little panel that uses the choke lever mounting screws to hold it in place.  Its in easy reach of the lift control as well. Wiring was run through the choke lever slot so the dash can be returned to stock. I used weatherpak connectors to hook up the motor and actuator. 

no snow yet to try it out but heres a video of how it works.
