Arrow ST1032 Loose Chute

Hello everyone. I have a ST1032 that's in pretty nice shape. I have had it 5 or 6 years now and its been a great machine. I do have 1 issue though. The discharge chute like to rattle around and in general is kinda loose fitting. What can I do to resolve this? do they make shims or anything for it? Doesn't seem to be affecting performance but its just annoying because the rattle is quite loud at idle etc. Thanks

I find putting some low temperature grease around the mounting ring that the chute rotates on will often get rid of the rattle. You should also make sure all the hardware that secures the chute is straight and tight.

There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!

The washer would have to be as big around as the chute.

There is play between the chute and the top of the blower housing where they come together. I'll have to take a video to show what is happening.

GEvening WM, I just serviced one of those units tonight. As suggested, I removed the chute to line that ring with grease. It does help with noise and movement. I also tighten up the 9/16" nut on the chute pivot bolt. Keeps the chute solid and prevents it whipping as the snow flies thru it.

GLuck, Jay

Get a couple of coffee can plastic lids and cut the center out to fit. Install between the chute and ring, bolt it together and trim the outside.
