First break down

My 1128 Toro had its first breakdown and the cable that controls the chute deflector broke. I am thinking not bad for close to 50 hrs on this blower. Have a new cable coming this week.

No I can not aim the deflector it just shots high. Not a problem in my yard but in a yard I do down the street I have to keep it down a bit so I do not wound the neighbors house 25 ft away. No snow in for cast till Thursday so I will be good till then.

Keep in mind that if you need a cable assembly in a hurry, sometimes you can find DIY shifter/brake cable kits at bicycle stores and then slide the cable out, cut the sheathing to length and carefully slide the cable back in. I did this once with an el-cheapo lawnmower that shipped without a throttle assembly. The throttle was pinned wide open from the factory. Which is getting to be the norm since most mowers have the safety interlock where if you let go of the push bar/handle, the mower turns off. Not a lot of call for throttling down to idle speed when you just have to restart the mower anyways.

Not to bad really. 30-40 bux for the cable?
Could have been worse, could have had a plugged shoot like some other brands that we won't get into here!

No motor is offered on TOROS. that is why they have the quick flick stick set up.

It broke 1/2in from where it attaches to the joy stick under the dash. it is a easy 10 minute fix once I get the new cable.
