Ariens Chute Adjustment

Hi, I just bought an Ariens Deluxe 24. The machine is great, however, the chute wont adjust all the way down. I like to shoot the snow downward onto burms and the cable only allows the chute to go almost straight out. Any suggestions?

Man do I feel stupid. The boot was covering the bottom of the turnbuckle for lack of a better word. I thought there wasn’t any adjustability looking at it.

NP, glad you got it figured out.

Also shows why reading the docs is an important step to getting to know your equipment . . .

When I was in college a favorite expression of one instructor was:

"When all else fails, try following directions."

I don't want to think about how many times that would have saved me a lot of toil & effort....
