Toro S620 Direction Handle

I picked up the S620 over the summer and just recently tested it out with the new snow fall. I discovered the handle that controls the direction of the snow slips, thus allowing the snow to be sent in whatever direction it wants.
I was hoping for some suggestions on fixing this. I'm not a mechanic, engineer, and a single father that works full time while working on my master's degree. I'm needing cost effect solutions or even modification ideas to help me out.

that was kind of an issue with those older vane type directional machines. there are quite a few ways to deal with it...... the easy way would be as simple as a little bunge cord you move from one side to the other to hold it in place. Other options would require a bit of effort taking it apart and replace the rubber grommets in the eyelets and then butt up a few washers on either side and use a couple small hose clamps to to basically pinch up the washers against the grommet and keep tension on the handle that way. Those are decent little machines - just getting harder to find parts for them.




I am deathly allergic to shovels!
