FDT snowblower chute removal

Is there any way to remove the chute so I can fit it in my car ? The blower would be a FDT single belt 36".

It looks like the only thing that holds it on is a metal tab on the rear of the chute, but it is welded in place. I would have to bend the tab back possibly.

Has anyone ever done this ? Don't want to break anything, but would like to transport one in my car. Better gas mileage than my truck at 8 mpg.

Thanks

Yeah I looked, both of mine do too :D:D

It's in the center front, the rope / cable won't let you point the chute at yourself. ;);)

Now everyone is going to go look, especially Brett and Rigger :o)

I might be mistaken, but I thought there was a notch, if you unhooked the rope or cable you could turn it around to the notch ??Gonna have to go look now. LOL

Thanks guys! I would have never known. I looked at my 3 belt blower & there was a big notch in the front staring me in the face! OO

Maybe I can cram a blower in the back seat of my little Plymouth Neon if I find one locally. Trunk opening is too small. 33 mpg is better than 8 mpg in my truck.

Thanks Mike. I don't need one right now. My 3 belt blower works good enough. Just looking for a decent one to upgrade. Trying to keep the cost down with no shipping cost, so I was looking locally first. Curious to what you have though. Send me a PM with pics & price when you get a chance. Thanks.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
