|2.5x Crank |
Crank the handle in a clockwise direction, the chute turns right. Crank it in a counter-clockwise direction, the chute turns left.
The crank, however, doesn't control the pitch of the snow. To adjust the deflector, you gotta stop, walk around the machine and adjust it by hand.
|Quick-Turn Lever |
Instead of cranking in circles, you simply move the lever to the left to blow snow to the left. Move the lever to the right, and the chute turns right.
The remote deflector, however, is controlled by a second lever, which requires the use of a second hand.
It allows you to adjust the direction of the chute from right to left while also controlling the angle of the deflector from low to high.
This eliminates the need for a second lever and allows all chute and deflector control to be done with a single hand.
Your right thumb turns the chute side-to-side, and your left thumb raises and lowers the deflector.
Best of all, you don't need to take your hands off the wheel. They stay firmly wrapped around the toasty warm hand warmers, keeping the snow blower on cruise control.
