have a question on my 222 and snowcaster.
I have just hooked up a caster to move to a new location, I noticed that the lift bar rubs the side of the tractor hood.
anyone with this particular hood style have this problem?



and for most canucks.

That lift bar looks a little strange. Are you sure it's the one that came with the caster and not a home made one?




In your second picture you must have the 4118D all loaded up to drop off at my house right? :lol: :lol: :lol:

That bend looks like straight off 90 degrees ...

All the S/C pipes I have are more likely 80-85 degree bend ... out board up close at the front, diving inward toward the rock shaft.

I have heard of this problem before ... anybody know if some very early lift pipes may have been 90 degrees like that ??? Early flat side hoods?

lol sno. somewhere else its headed.

its original, I tried 2 SC bars, the one off my old 222 is smack on 90 and it worked because it was the old school 222 without the bulg on the side.
so I put on the white SC bar and could tell it wasnt quite 90 it worked better, It may have been smacked around in storage.
with that said, I think your right Brian.

I will go out tomorrow and look again, I need to solve this befor winter, did the actuall SC units have any difference's (I can probably answer that tomorrow also)

As I have never personally seen a snowcaster either mounted or unmounted, please forgive if I'm wrong about my observances. Looking at the parts manual and the operator's manual it seems as if parts are missing. There should be a cotter pin, two flat washers and a safety pin in the lift arm on the sides of the right hand bracket of the 'caster. I zoomed in to 207% and didn't see any of this. It also looked like both holes in the lift arm were too far to the left, towards the center of the tractor. I hope this is a help, if I'm wrong please feel free to correct me, I'm always open to learn.

My S84 is like Brian and Billygoat said. I just measured and it's less than 90 degrees and there's between 5 and 5.25 inches between the bracket and the inside of the lift arm when it's fastened at the holes Billygoat mentioned. Plenty of clearance even with the hood bulge.
The bar that's on there now looks home made, it doesn't have the crank support on it.

I have that same hood on my 224 and I do NOT have any issues with it hitting the hood. That bar is not the OEM part for that snowcaster. The correct lift bar is the one you have leaning on the LH side of the caster. The same one that the chute adjuster is connected to. Here is a pic of the bar on mine.

Are we all seeing the same picture? I see a crank support on the black arm as well as see the washer and safety pin connecting it to the top hole on the rockshaft. :wtf:
WOOOOOWWWW I think I need glasses. This is one of those optical illusion pictures. To me, it looks like the lift bar bends up just at the point where the bracket for the chute rotator is. The bar looks bent and then "wet" like it was sprayed with WD40 or something. I went back and looked at it and it STILL looks like that to me. I need help.

Basically I seen a bar that was bent 90 degrees and then aimed up toward the fender with the last foot of it looking "wet"

Perhaps if Calzone had focused on providing several nice clear shots of this issue from different angles instead of using the opportunity to display his 4118D, then the membership would have an easier time in figuring out what is going on.

Haha it is an optical illusion! The "wet part" is the crank support. I had to go back and look two times before I saw it.
