    Rockgod and dschuffert,

    What is the travel length on the hydraulic cylinders in the Frontier deflector kits, and is all the travel needed? Looking to build my own deflector control. Thanks

    5"

    You could use a longer stroke at 6" for sure, maybe even 7 I don't know. Just be sure it's not too long or you'll have a bent-up deflector cute.

    Hiya,

    Well, my ordeal is over, the place in Concord managed to type in the correct number and press order. Was easy to install, only issue I had was the pipe threads on the 90 degree hose fittings was rough, I had to wire wheel them to smooth the burrs off and get a good seal.

    I was hoping to get a foot or 2 of snow today but alas, it's only a couple inches so far.....

    Got 10" of snow Wednesday and a chance to try out the 59 blower on the 4110. It handled it with ease blasting a full chute twenty feet at half throttle. It is a little heavy on the front axle but great for traction. I have a weight box and a seven foot rear blade to hold the rear tires down.
    Patiently waiting for more. Now realize I need a cab. The wind change can really chill one to the bone, especially when it has snow crystals in the mix.

    Alright, alright I know this isn't much snow (5") but I couldn't wait to get out and test everything.

    The tractor, blower and the spout deflector all worked perfectly. I did 5 medium size driveways and couldn't believe how much I used the 3rd function w/spout deflector. Very,very handy.

    The wife unit was nice enough to brave the cold yesterday and snap some photos.

    5"??? There's barely 1" on the ground. You couldn't even wait for the rest of the snow to get on the ground.
