In stock, timely shipping and easy to install!

Removal required a 3/8” socket to free the cable from the upper handle, a small screwdriver to release the plastic spring clip from the lower handle and a slight tap with a nut driver from the underside of the main body shell to free the last retainer. Installing the replacement was a simple reverse process. I had also ordered the auger drive cable for future replacement when it becomes necessary. Replacing the cable revealed a failing auger drive belt, so I subsequently ordered that. I recommend checking all belts and cables when an initial failure of any one of them occurs.

Direct replacement

The item was a little difficult to install because of some tight space where it enters the deck. Other than that it fit like a glove and works well

Snowblower Drive cable

Not bad to install except for getting that plastic piece out just under the metal shell where it connects. I broke the housing that holds it in place which is part of the gear housing. I just added a washer (metal) and a rubber hose washer then used a cable clamp on top so when engaging the clutch it will work. Works like a champ, will look at in spring and see if a better fix can be done when its warmer.
