    1025r Frt mount snow blower

    I'm looking at making a SB purchase sometime in the future and I have to ask this question. The spec's state a 1025/1026 can run a 47" or 54" SB. With knowing that why can't they run a 59"? It's only 5" bigger. From what I have read here, everyone states that their rigs handle the 54" like its nothing and eats snow like crazy. My typical snows will be about 6-8" not the 10-16" some folks might see to where a 59" could be to much but maybe slowing the units travel speed will allow it to handle it.

    Any input will be appreciated.

    The tractor could probably run it under most circumstances, but the hitch and driveshaft is different so it will not be a easy thing to try.

    Yes the 54" blower works with well with my 1026R. But, I wouldn't go any wider. I have never stalled my tractor or plugged the blower, but, deep wet snow will pull the RPM's down big time.

    The reason for asking about fitting a 59" is that looking thru the net I see more used 59" than I do 54" and was kicking around the idea of moving to one of them instead of a 54". I have months to contemplate how I want to actually go but looking at all of the options that are feasible to do. Thanxs for the input guys!

    The 54" blower is also used on the 2xxx. The 59" blower is for the 3xxx. The front hitch is different, I think.

    I have heard of some putting a 60" blower on the rear of a 1026. I am sure a 1xxx would run a 60" ok. But the travel speed would be reduced.
