My 2720 was delivered this past summer with the 54" blower already attached. I removed the blower and quick-attach for the summer but left the front bearing support and mid-PTO shaft in place as it was not in the way of anything. The dealer is picking up the tractor this week to install the loader so I had to remove the blower, quick-attach, bearing support and mid-PTO shaft in preparation. [ Side note - if being sans tractor doesn't bring on another late March snow I don't know what will ].
The mid-PTO shaft disconnected easily from the tractor but I didn't see any way to disconnect it from the bearing support?
Is this a permanent attachment or is it supposed to come off? I didn't have time to tinker around as I needed to get the blower and chains removed before it got dark.
Appreciate any tips for handling the bearing support / long PTO shaft.
On a side note - I assume that even once the loader brackets and grill guard are installed, when I remove the loader for winter the bearing support for the blower will just slip back on without me needing to actually unbolt anything?
