Very nice..  Now you need to share details.  Is this your design? What are you using for a motor and gearbox.

Thanks guys it’s a kit from berco for garden tractor snow blowers it to put the shut electric comes with two small 12v gear box motors one for the chute deflector and one for the rotation of the chute I used the one for the rotation cause that one has a 3/4 shaft on it the other one has a gear it and came with all the wiring and joystick for around $350 I will eventually install one for forward and reverse for the saw head but I will need a stronger one for that and will connect it to the same joystick and will add a speed control

Hi Bearmax,

Can you supply a link to the equipment you used for your power lift? Having trouble finding the equipment you used. Has it worked satisfactorily for you.

Up here in Canada,That snowblower kit is called " BERCOMAC Electric Chute Control Kit / Kimpex Canada. $449.99 Online price.I think that is hell of a idea.Heck I'd do that for LM2000 in a blink of a eye but money is a little tight here.In the process of moving from a acreage to the farm.Building things and repairing all takes time to do and money so I gues that will on the want list for a few years,Hope not too long.

                                                                                                           enlightened wink Aw! the future I can just see it a remote control sawmill to load,make,pile,dry pile while I sitting in shade with a cold ice tea,my feet on a stool counting the money lolcheeky.Just Dreaming lol lmao.The way things are going the year 2525 will be here before we know it.....enlightened

Thank you pete. I have been looking at ways to automate some functions on my HD36. This looks like a good option.

Thanks Pete that’s the right info I got mine from berco direct I work at a small engine shop so I got a good price but it’s the same has kimpex and yes it seems to be working pretty good till now and it’s easy with the joystick and stops right on the marks not too fast or too slow and it’s saving the shoulder

Well I found something that is some what like your idea.a guy went down to a place where they sell off discontinuded materials like motors eg; 12 volt motors for a tarp that covers a truckers grain trailer.And then he added a remote control off a winch and well the rest is history.No photos wbut it was expained as much as I just did.Them tarp motors a real strong to roll aa 40 foot tarp,So I geuss if a guy is willing to think harder than working harder it will work.I never thouhgt of that way also.Yours is more explain able and with photos.So I guess you win.

What a great idea! The motor looks like an automobile power window unit. The Kimpex web site indicates the motor is available separately for under $90 Cnd. Other than installing grease fittings on the shaft collar and bushing the set up looks virtually maintenance free. The hub, weld on gears and chain can also be sourced from Princess Auto in Canada.
