    Hiya,

    The most important measurements for a snow blower are drum depth and fan diameter, width is secondary as you have a hydrostat, you can go as slow as needed.

    With a 2320/2025 I would stick to a diameter of 18 to 21" and a depth of no more than 8", that should require between 12 and 15 PTO HP which will match your tractor very well. I had a Meteor 54" on a 2520 and there was nothing it couldn't go through with it's 17.5 PTO HP. I would recommend that model to anyone with a 2000 series tractor, even up here in ski country.

    One thing you will want with the 3pt blower and a loader plow is loaded rear tires and at least 2 pair of wheel weights as well as suitcase weights up front on the frame as they will plant the front tires better as the little 2000 series don't steer too straight with a loader plow in float.

    The first thing to think about is the wheel width of your tractor. You need something that is atleast as wide as your tractor, otherwise the tractor starts to ride up on the unblown snow pack. After that it just depends on how deep of snow you get and where you want to go with it. The deeper and harder packed the snow the less width you can move. Of course with a larger blower you can always take a 1/2 or 3/4 bite to reduce load on the tractor. Do you have any tight areas yo want to blow such as pathways or sidewalks? That might steer you away from a 6ft and down to a 5ft.

    I have a 54" Frontier on my 2320 and have not had any issues with moving snow. As others have stated here and elsewhere, the first pass is always the toughest then you can take smaller bites.

    Follow the HP recommendations as listed by the blower companies. You want as wide as possible in order the clear the wheels if possible when turning.
    Like anything else there are limiting factors. Do you plan on waiting to the end of the storm if it's wet or deep? I strongly advise otherwise. Had a storm here a few weeks ago that didn't look like much for wetness and this was with a hydro powered front mount. Had all I could do on the first pass 74" wide and 8" deep.
    Having the loader at the ready really is a winner. Pull stuff away from the doors then send it with the blower. I had limited use of my JD with the Normand 82 Inverted blower this year but when I worked it I was impressed. Wish I had an inverted down here in MA.
