    Question about snowblower for 3033R

    Hey guys,

    Iím wondering if any of you folks have run a PTO snowblower on a 3033R. I got my unit last summer and use it for my landscaping and snow clearing business and have been crazy busy with snow this year.

    Iím wondering how the 3033 handles the blower for power. It would probably be the 67 inch blower so minimum HP of 20, which the 3033 just breaks so maybe too light of a unit. I talked to my dealership over the last few days and they donít have any in stock and wonít be bringing any in so that I can test it.

    My salesman actually recommended I go to one of the guys in town who bought one and see if heíll let me hook his up to my unit and test it out. If it was me I wouldnít really want random guys calling me up asking to test their equipment on my attachments, so Iím not going to do that to the guy.

    Thanks

    I assume you mean a rear PTO blower on the 3PH? The 3033R can also have a front-mounted blower using the Mid-PTO.

    I must say that's the first time I've heard THAT one. Nice demo approach from the dealer's standpoint.

    Question about snowblower for 3033R

    Really? Never really looked at the front one. But yeah rear on the 3PH, id still use the loader for back blading to get in areas I wouldnít want to put the blower

    Hahaha! Yeah, definitely a bit disappointed in the salesman! I even offered to rent it instead of demo but they have zero interest in bringing one in. Thought it would be an easy $3500 for them.

    Hiya,

    I have a 3320 and I would not hesitate to run a 65" blower on it. Keep in mind that with a hydrostat you can go as slow as needed to let the blower work. Most of the blower makers spec the HP requirements for gear tractors, you can go a little up if your running a hydrostat. The HP factor comes into play with the fan diameter and the drum depth. The larger the fan and the deeper the drum the more HP it will take to run the blower, the auger and width are secondary. Other factors that consume HP are the chute opening size and the length of the chute but these are less of a factor.

    For what it's worth, I have found that the Meteor blowers seem to take less HP to run than some other makes, they are very popular in my area. I will say they are a no frills brand but they seem to hold up well. I had a 60" on the back of a 2520 when they first came out, that made 17 PTO HP and it ran that one great.

    I run the SB1164 blower on the back of my 2032R with no problems. My machine has the same 24 HP at the rear PTO that your's has.

    Some times I'm running faster that the blower can eat through the snow so I just have to stop for a sec of slow down but 24HP will run that thing all day long. If you went with a 65"-68" I doubt the few additional inches would make much difference.

    Good to know Jim! Thanks! Yeah I figured it would be ok, my biggest reason for getting a snow blower would be for the nasty drifts we get here.



    I also figured it could give me a higher hourly return because of the substantial time savings. So I definitely will be pushing the unit to itís full potential! Hahaha

    Iíll second the recommendation for the front blower. Love that setup on my 3046r.

    In the process of adding a hydraulic chute deflector to perfect the setup.
