Double headed snowblower

It all started with me looking at buying a snowblower for the front of my four wheeler, sure didn't feel like dropping that kinda coin on a snowblower. Then one day I was cleaning up behind the barn, looked at the two broken 924024's given to me a while ago. Then I walked into the barn glanced at my welder, and said "What the heck". I brought them in and stripped them down to bare bones, and made a lot of measurements. I welded up a frame and put castors under it and bought two Predators. I didn't have too much faith in what I was doing at the time, If it worked, GREAT. if not, Oh well. So I really didn't put too much time into either until tested. Well, it worked. Except for the gov linkages freezing up it worked pretty darn good. So now Im doing some needed updates to the two blowers like bearings, bushings and paint. Figured I'd do this after building the heater boxes.

I'll post pictures when I can, or check my profile.

Oh yeah, if anyone needs parts for their 924024. Drop me a line. I have tranny parts and engines.

Couple more pics on progress. Heater boxes are done. Now on to bushings, bearings, impeller upgrade and a coat of paint. Not getting to crazy with prep work on the paint job, time will not allow a complete strip down. Good thing for rust oleum orange engine paint, it covers well.

You could create a tie rod to link the chute direction. A bolt in each chute base, two heim joints, and a rod. You could also add a 12V wiper motor, with a momentary switch to direct them remotely. Ideally, find a junk yard one, that's cheap. Might be able to do something similar for the deflection, but it would require a lot more engineering and cables.

Food for thought.

Great job, by the way.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Thank you for the cool points. I wanted to keep this simple and cheap. Where I live the deflector never comes down, so I may not even put it back on. The chutes on the other hand will be turned independent of each other with electric window motors. This way I can go down my drive way and spray down both sides, depending on the wind of course. So I will be using switches in a box along with a deadman switch to shut everything down in case of an emergency.
