    New Snowblower on the 2520

    Winter is back and I just finished the installation of the snowblower on the 2520. It's a year 2006 64" Pronovost Puma. I refreshed the snowblower with new paint! There are 2 hydraulic cyl. on it so I put a 2 spools open center valve using the power beyond kit already existing on the tractor (for the backhoe). I may have to put longer levers on the valve but it works very well.

    Looks good! That's a big snow blower.

    Have you considered installing rear view mirrors? Seems it might make driving in reverse easier.

    Here's a link to some previous mirror threads on the forum: http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...view%20mirrors

    I'm surprised the three-point can even lift that thing. We're rated for under 1200lbs at the pins.

    Looking for a 3xx or 4xx restoration project (at a good price)

    I am also surprised with the 3PTH capacity.
    The snowblower is 425 lbs, yes it's heavy but I didn't want the light duty version, which is the "Lynx".
    The 62" Lynx is 75 lbs lighter, around 340 lbs and it's not the same construction.
    That is my personal opinion.

    Nice looking machine, yea I would need the rear mirrors. Wait I have mirrors and I have a front blower. No way would I be able to use a rear blower, hard enough just using the tiller .

    Until I find something better, I installed this leftover fully aerodynamic Harley-Davidson FLH mirror on the 2520 :-)
