 Kubota L4330 Snowblower chute rotates only one way

Hello all,

I just got my tractor(Grand L4330) back from my Kubota dealer yesterday. I had them install a 72 inch snowblower on it (l2185 I believe). I fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, had the opportunity to try it out yesterday. The blower works great, and throws some serious snow. The problem however, is that the chute will only rotate one direction. This setup uses the loader stick for its adjustments. Up and down on the loader stick raises and lowers the blower, while right and left are supposed to turn the chute the corresponding direction. The chute turns great in one direction, but will not turn in the other. Here's the realy strange thing for me. If I switch the hydraulic hoses, the chute will turn the other way perfectly. What is going on here?? Do I have something wrong with the valve?? A blockage?? I just took the loader off before sending it to the dealer and it was working fine. I did have the 100 hour service done at the same time. I haven't called the dealer yet as I thought I would ask the knowledgeable people here first. Thanks in advance for your help.

John

You can't really use a blower without total control over the discharge direction, and that problem should have been caught at the dealers, so I'd ask them to have a tech make a housecall.

Do you have quick disconnects on those lines? If yes, maybe one is plugged up, not working properly or not connected right.

I assume that it turns to the left and not right..... Just push the lever over the detent to the right and all will be fine. If you do not have a detent to the right then you have the wrong valve. The detent to the right is just like useing the float detent except that it returns on its own.

Yes I did get it fixed. Stupid rookie mistake - just as you mentioned - I was not pushing the handle far enough to the right to get past the detent. After reading your e-mail, I went right down and tried it and it worked great (only issue I would say it has now is that it moves way to fast - but oh well, I can deal with that).

Thanks for your help

John
