I just bought a new L4330 with a cab and I now have to hook up my electrical control for my rear mounted snowblower. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get the wire from the snowblower to inside the cab without drilling any holes? Also, where would be the best place to get the power for the control?

There are several holes on the bottom of the cab that might work for you depending on where you want the controls. We've used the loader control cable hole before and for some people that wanted them out of the cab including the switches we've just come through the rear window depeneding on the size of the wires. The main line should have it's own fuse and depending on the draw you might want to go to the starter for a lead to the rear. ....

Retcol,

You should mount an electrical outlet above and between your three-point arms, centered above the PTO shaft. This will prevent your wires from making contact with the lift arm assembly when you raise and lower your blower. It will also allow you to use a short pigtail to your blower, so that it doesn't get wrapped up in the PTO shaft. Additionally, the mounting plate for the switch will serve as a good ground connection.

The outlet you install should be permanently fixed to your tractor, making it possible for you to push and pull on the connector without moving the outlet, or damaging the wiring running to the switch.

Your wires should then run under the tractor, following the same path as your rear work lights, or flashers.

Most of the wiring that you need to access comes into the cab through the lower steering cover panels (knee panel). You should be able to access those wiring harnesses without having to drill any holes in your cab.

If you have a wiring schematic for your tractor, you should be able to find a "hot" wire coming from the engine compartment that you can "T" into. You should then install an in-line fuse (rated to handle the chute motor draw) in the wire running to your new switch.

I'm not sure where you want to mount your switch, but you'll want to mount it where it won't get broken when you enter and exit the cab, or where your knees will strike it when going over rough ground.

A small hole next to the ignition switch is usually a good place to mount it, as your hot wire will likely come from near there.

Now......it's possible that your cab has a wiring harness already installed in it, designed to be used for accessory switches. There may be an access panel in your cab, which would make this a very easy project.

Joel ....

When we mount any kind of electric controls we put it up above the 3pth and remote levers, in ours there is a small steel strip in the window opening, on the back is a couple of metric nuts welded in place, it forms a very secure mounting spot and is really handy.

We, as Art mentioned, run a heavy wire from the battery to a convenient spot to mount a relay in a weather proof box, then power the trigger circuit and switch from a hot wire that already exists in the factory wiring right next to the bracket I mentioned earlier.

Best of luck. ....
