Ariens 11526 Pro Snow Blower Model:926005

This Ariens 11526 Pro Snow Blower Model:926005 has a joystick to maneuver the chute. 3 years ago I heard there was an upgrade changing out the half moon gear on top of the chute to the new finer tooth gear for better chute stability, locking the chute in smaller increments. Problem is when I move the lever to swing the chute it tends to get stuck in a tooth and it won't swing or it won't lock and it swings around uncontrollably until it eventually it grips a tooth and locks. I have tweaked the cable many times for 2 to 3 seasons now. It works fine for about an hour then messes up from time to time and progressively gets worse the more you use it. Has anyone else changed to this new and improved upgrade and have the same problem or does anyone know what might be the problem?

Thanks

I had to put the kit in my Ariens. The chute was swinging, like yours. And it didn't start doing this until quite a few years of owning it.

I didn't know they had a kit....Hmmmm. Anybody got a part number??? But up to this point, what I have been doing, is removing the lock piece (the gold one), as it's usually squished together. I spread it out, to a point that fits the teeth of the big gear better, then I sharpen the teeth on the lock so its a more positive engagement. I tweak the spring so it snaps it back in a little tighter. After re-assembly, I tighten the 9/16 nut underneath the pivot, so it doesn't swing so wildly, and now takes effort. Has been working fairly well so far, but it's only been a few storms in.

Thanx, Jay

I don't like those things either. They should just stick with the trusty reliable cork screw/hand crank to move the chute.

Well I adjusted the cable again tonight. Works good again for now. I need to get to the bottom of this. The chute was stuck in one position today I had to pull on the cable gear logo under the handles to free it up. So nothing like a 2 handed chute move to make the snow removal go fast.

This is the part I am talking about. I have to adjust the cable often

I have that kit but have not yet used it as it was the replacement for the stripprd one on the 1027 I am rebuilding, just playing with it, It seems to work well but no snow or pressure on it to see if it holds up or not.

I have a 926001 and have never had any issue with the chute control from Day 1. I love it. Not sure why others have issues. Maybe mine came with the kit already installed at the factory ???

Hi,
Any chance you could explain how your cable is routed. Maybe a pic or explanation? I have a pic above. Is it routed like mine?
Thanks
