jd 826 chute clamps
Original Message   Feb 8, 2013 10:49 pm
The last snow here in Iowa, I was attacking the EOD and the chute fell off of my older deere 824.  I am missing on of the chute clamps, I ended up finishing the blowing by using a pair of trusty vice grips to hold the chute in place.  Any one know a hardware store equivelant I could use?  Found these on ebay but 14$ for some chunks of metal (free shipping though).  I have heard that there might be a Ariens look a like.  Any ideas.

Ariens, MTD, Simplicity, etc... have all built "John Deere" snowblowers over the years'. Those "JD" clamps could be rebranded Ariens clamps that you may be able to find at a local Ariens dealer for a bit less $$$.

I looked at the ebay link and those are definitely the same kind of clips used on my late 70s Ariens blowers.
