    Moving up to the 54" Snowblower

    Ever since we bought our 2520 a year and half ago, I have been looking for a 54" snowblower. The 47" we had from our 2320 works but barely covers the width of the rear tires. I found an ad on CL about 200 miles away and because I happened to be traveling back and forth to Iowa this past weekend, I was able to go about 50 miles out of my way as I traveled back from Iowa to take a look at this blower on Monday. It was in the excellent condition the seller said it was and I ended up buying it. It was at this point, we decided to see if there was any chance of fitting the blower inside our rental (Kia Soul) so I wouldnt have to come back at a later time with our FX4. By removing the drift cutters and the spout, we were able to persuade it inside the rear with enough room for the quick hitch, pto shaft and implement drive and upstop.

    Last night, I put everything back together, greased all the zerks and topped off the crankcase. Per the previous owner, he bought it last year and only used it once. He found it too wide for his driveway in town and has since been using his walk behind. Forecasters are saying 3-4 inches of accumulation in the next 2 days so hopefully I get a chance to play with it soon.

    You guys are the best...

    Not sure Feb is the best time of year to try to sell a snowblower but who knows. Else I need to find a place to "hide" it for the summer. My bride is wondering why we need 2 snowblowers.
