    HP to spin a 96" double auger Snowblower

    Hi,

    Well, another "how many horses will it take" thread.....

    What are your thought on a 66hp JD spinning the blower below?? It's a 96" farm king, 540, etc.

    I'm finding that the big drifts are piling over the top of my single auger bx-74, hence the thought of moving up.

    Thoughts?? Good idea? Waste of money? Too much implement? Handle it if I drive cautiously?

    -J.

    I would see no issue with that. The 74" I had would not even bog the motor in deep heavy snow.
