    Cool JD 2520 and Frontier SB1154

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if someone can help me figure something out I saw on YouTube. I've recently purchased a 47 acre parcel of land with mostly bush. I've found a good deal on a JD 2520 with loader and backhoe. I'm going to want a front mount blower but don't like the John Deere offerings. I want to get a Frontier SB1154. I've seen a YouTube video with this exact set up ...

    I'm not able to find any information regarding the brackets I would need, model numbers for the lift system, quick hitch? Is this a "one of" custom job? I hope not because it's awesome.

    Many thanks!!

    That's a custom built package someone put together. They built a frame for the front end to support a QuickHitch and then attached the blower to the QuickHitch. Assuming they used the mid-PTO they must have replaced the gears in the SB1154 gearbox as well. Otherwise, that thing is running waaaaay over-speed.

    If you take a PTO driven implement designed for 540 RPM and then use the mid PTO which is 2100 RPM, yup, it's being over-driven almost 4 times over rated speed.

    Yup. Exactly my thinking.

    They may have used one of those wrap-around PTO setups that bring the rear PTO up front. That's how Erskine runs their front mount blowers. Lots of extra parts to get that done though.

    Listening to the video, he may be running the mid-PTO at idle. Still not a smart thing to do I wouldn't think though.

    ETA: Nope, nevermind. Watched the whole thing, definitely not idle.
