    Using a JD 47 two stage from JD425 and converting to JD2305?

    I have a chance to purchase a JD 47 2 stage snowblower that had been used on a JD425 tractor.
    I was wondering if the setup for the JD 425 would work for my JD 2305. I assume the drive shaft length would be different, correct? Are any of the other parts for the blower setup, usable for the JD 2305?
    I did reference JD parts online for both tractors, but then got even more confused.
    Seeking info.if this conversion can be done with switching parts from one tractor to another.
    Thanks.

    You would likely need the implement drivee and up-stop kit for the 2305 (same as the 1-series) LVB26135 ($420.00). The prices are from Mutton Power, there are other vendors as well.

    If you don't have them you would also need:
    Front Quick Hitch - BM20921 ($655.00)
    2000 RPM Front PTO Kit - LVB25966 ($275.00)
    Attaching Support Kits - LVB25396 ($60.00)
    Hydraulic Retrofit Kit - BM20896 - ($28.89)

    And, depending on the age of the blower new hoses may need to be made for the chute rotation as JD changes the fittings used so the Hydraulic Retrofit Kit may not work.

    At least that's what I had to do to get the 47" from my 445 to work with my 1025R.
    Thanks,

    I looked at utilizing my 46 snow throwers from my 455s on the new 1025Rs. By the time I added the numbers up to convert, plus what I could get for the 46 snow throwers on the used market (Craig's List), it was more cost effective to just buy the package new.

    I used the same 47 snow blower on a 425, 455, 2210/2305, 2320 & a 2720. As others have said you will need the proper front quick hitch & front PTO. You will also need the proper drive & up stop kit for your tractor. The drive & up stop kit consists of the correct length pto shaft for the snow blower. A stop for the snow blower to limit how high the blower will raise. Some also contain extensions for the hydraulic hoses.

    Thanks for the replies to this thread.
    I am still undecided as to how I will proceed or will I proceed. I do have a 54" blade that I have been using, along with my JD walk-behind snowblower. If I had a bigger Deere house, that would definitely add a plus for the purchase of the 47" snowblower. My Deere house has had too many growing pains. Here in S. E. Pa., in the past, I believe most of the snow received has been on the moderate to heavy wet snow. Using the blade worked well for that type of snow. Having a 47 snow thrower, I would be able to move the snow a further distance. If I get a early snow storm, I push it further into the yard allowing for future snow.

    Also, my CFO has not weighed in yet.

    Regards
