Does anyone have a list of after market chute control levers or a site to purchase originals? I appreciate any info!

Good luck to finding one. Shouldn't be too hard.

 

And while on the subject of the 18538 how does one stop the spinning of the chute from vibrations of the tractor and auger?

 

Thanks.

Theres a stop screw on the main body of the control rod housing you can tighten to add resistance to the hand crank rod.

Wasn't sure what that was.Thanks for that info. Are there any other items of concern on these casters? I don't have an Owner's Manual. Just the breakdown and parts list.

If you keep the gear box and bearings lubed these will last forever

For now I will have to settle for disengaging the pto and moving the chute by hand until I find one.

Item 4 all the way out to the handle. Item 4 snapped in half on me and the handle that you rotate is bent.
