Glad I found this forum...wow!
I have an 870 JD with a frontier snowblower that used to belong to my father, now to me. I had thought this when he owned it, but wanted to get some input before the snow flies here soon. The snowblower works, but I feel as though it's not turning or throwing the snow as fast or far as it should. Also, when the snow seems to not get eaten up as fast as I think it would. I don't see any gear changes on the rear PTO, so I'm assuming this is just the rpms it runs at. I'm not running it with not enough throttle either I don't believe. Thoughts? I just feel the snowblower itself should be chugging through it better than it does.
Thanks for any input.
