Auger Control Cable

Hi all!
I have a Husqvarna ST 227P snow blower. Ive been searching for a new auger control cable, but cant find one in my small town. Ive been searching for some kind of switchup number, to try and find something compatible, but havent had any luck. Does anyone know if some other brand would work, or perhaps direct me to a site where I can find alternative parts? (I work in the forest industry, and have no problem finding switchup numbers for Caterpillar, Waratah etc but this Husqvarna is making me pull my hair out haha). The Husky cable number is 588113802.
Thanks!

Thank you, yes Ive found it on both sites. However, weve had almost 2 feet of snow here in the last 36 hours. Cable broke yesterday, was hoping to find a replacement somewhere today without having to order online. Really just hoping to find a crossover number.

If a crossover number is available, it would be listed on Amazon, but there isn't one. Usually if it's a popular cable used on a number of different machines there will be enough demand for many suppliers to provide it.

OK, thank you for the advice. Just ordered one from my local guy. Husband has jimmy-rigged it for now, heres hoping it will last long enough to get the driveway done. Its a huge job, big enough to park 12 vehicles, no way we are gonna shovel all that lol.

We'll cross our fingers for you!

The problem is that with the professional equipment you're used to dealing with, standard parts are used whenever possible to make the equipment easy to service. That's because they know that with their users, downtime = lost dollars.

Snowblowers, even "professional" models are marketed more toward consumers who tend to care more about initial purchase price than ease and cost of repairs. So they're cost-engineered to death, which means lots of proprietary parts.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
