Snow Blower Chute Deflector kit for John Deer or Kubota Linear Actuator Snow Blowers

Snow blower linear actuator chute deflector

This Snow Blower Chute Deflection kit will work on any Snow Blower system. Typically the OEM John Deer systems are expensive, or if your blower didn't come with the Chute adjustment Actuator, then you can add it on simply with this Kit.

We recommend using our 4" stroke 35lbs force Linear Actuator Here along with the protective Rubber Boot that comes in 2 parts. This is simply to protect the Actuator from water.

The complete list of parts is below along with links to buy each product. We separated each part out in case you don't need all the compotenents

1. 4" Stroke snow blower chute Linear Actuator 12vdc. choose the 35lbs force model

2. Protective Rubber boot for Snow Blower Actuators These are only $9 but will protect the Linear Actuator.

3. Toggle switch with up and down settings. For these switches you have the option of either the sustaining model or Momentary mode. We recommend the Momentary style, this acts like the window lift switch in your car where when you let go of the switch the Actuator will stop moving. If you prefer the momentary option, this will also work perfectly fine, the Actuator will simply go to its full stroke and stop automatically. 

4. EL-KIT. This Electrical wiring kit is specific for Linear Actuators. It includes wiring, some connectors and Fuse Blocks. At the bottom of this page we will share a link on how to wire up the Actuator with the Toggle switch

The Toggle switch has a 11.5mm dia neck for an under dash style installation. We suggest drilling a 12mm dia hole through your dash somewhere and then mount the switch from underneath. The Toggle switch comes with a threaded nut and washer and face plate to go over the top.

The Linear Actuator will typically connect using the existing holes in your Snow blower chute body. If you have to drill new holes you can use these pictures to give you an idea where to drill them. Note the same principles apply for Kubota and any other Snow Blower Chutes.

If you wish to use our Actuator mounting brackets (MB1) but remember to allow the Bracket to swivel as the Actuator opens and closes. To do this only use the 1 hole on the base of the MB1 bracket and attach to the chute with a washer in between to allow it to rotate a few degrees during operation. These MB1 Brackets fit on both ends of the actuator.
