    4710 snow blower/thrower ideas

    i purchased a new property and now have a half mile of driveway that will need to be cleared off in the winter. I currently have a 4710 with front loader that i would like to use for the snow removal. what is the best/cheapest way to get a snow thrower on this thing? i refuse to do the driveway in reverse so please don't mention that. the tractor currently only has a rear PTO but I'm guessing a mid PTO could be purchased if needed. any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated. again i don't want to spend a ton of money but will spend a good amount if that is what will be the best option. Thanks!

    You could try plowing it with edge tamers on your bucket...thats what I plan to try this winter on my 1/4 mile dirt driveway.

    I was closed off to the idea of the rear mount blower too...but I'm re-thinking that. They're much cheaper, and way tougher than those front mounts.

    A front mounted snowblower will be $5,000 to $12,000. I won't suggest a rear one, but I'm guessing this is to much for you to spend based on your comments.

    5-7k wouldn't be the end of the world but less is always better. i am willing to go the route of used parts if needed as well. i am all ears, better to have all the options on the table.

    Here is a front mounted snowblower that uses the rear PTO:

    Front Mount Snowblower | Snow Equipment | Snowblowers | Tractor Attachments | Erskine Attachments LLC

    -------------------
    Erskine also makes these rear blower that are "backwards" (AKA "pull type"), so you drive forwards to use it:


    3-Point PTO Rear Pull Snowblower | Snow Equipment | Snowblowers | Tractor Attachments | Erskine Attachments LLC

    ------------------
    And so does MK Martin:

    https://mkmartin.ca/products/pullType.php

    -----------------
    Adding the mid-PTO would let you use the JD one, but it's only 60" wide. You'd also have to get the front hitch and supporting components, all that might be hard to find but possible.

    -------------------
    JD/ Frontier used to make the SB21 loader mounted blower that was driven hydraulically like mentioned above, but I can't find any good links for it now. It was about 12k as I recall with the rear mounted power pack.

    ------------------
    This company makes some too:

    Your literally asking to “have your cake and eat it too”. You can either go less expensive and blow in reverse or spend big $ for some type of front mount, drive forward rear mount or rear power pack driven model-those are just the options that are available...

    thanks for this last helpful post!! where did you get the rear PTO pump setup from? the setup with the rear blade is exactly what i am looking for. i already have the rear blade and cab on my tractor.

    Have you looked into the cost of those rear PTO pumps? Last one I saw for sale used was still more expensive that a 3pt blower and that’s just the pump-doesn’t include the tank, lines or the actual blower for the front! And front mount hydraulic powered blowers aren’t cheap either...
