    X495 47" blower issues


    Hi gentlemen and ladies too,

    I have a x495 with an angling quick hitch with a 54" blade. I just recently bought a used 47" blower from a jd dealer under the table, was a fun time as the dealer said shaft and bearing for a 455 would work on mine. 900km round trip to find out it doesnt fit. After a delay and voicing my displeasure with the service manager, they corrected their mistake and got me a shaft and bracket BM 24361. It seemed to work fine during initial test. Tried it yesterday on some snow we got. Got it attached to the quick hitch, plugged the pto shaft in, disconnected the angling hydraulic hoses and put the locking pin in the quick hitch to keep it straight, connected the chute lines and away I went. So with the quick hitch on float, got to the edge of the driveway and the blower angled downwards and made a straining sound while running, it wasnt happy. Did my neighbors driveway and started to notice the blower was getting noisy, like bearing noisy. When I was done, started to disconnect (it wont fit in my garage still attached) the chain drive was tight and binding and gears were out of alignment. (chain was checked prior to use ) Then I noticed the inside bearing on the shaft with the small gear, was cracked, the collar. To me, it seems as though the 2 pto shafts connected are too short and pulled the small shaft out, causing the bearing damage and chain misalignment. Can anyone shed some light on this problem, something that I dont see, maybe someone has had this problem before, is one of the shafts too short?

    Thanks for your time in reading my short story,
    Kevin

    Looks like your going to need a new bearing and possibility a new shaft.

    A picture of the other side of the assembly would help a bit. The implement shaft should not impact the gear drive assembly, I've had those bearings fail before, they are wear items.
    Thanks,

    I guess a trip to my local jd dealer is in order, with all the part numbers in hand. The pto shaft seems to be the right one on the tractor, works without issue but the shaft from the blower is too short. Looks like it actually pulled the blower shaft out, the locking ring slid, broke the bearing and screwed up the chain alignment. Wonder if I can get a longer female end of the blower shaft, that connects to the blower, at the universal joint. Only need maybe an extra 2". Thanks for your help. Will post what I can find out from the dealer.Click image for larger version.

    Yes the short driveshaft is probably different from a 455 to x495. Ive yet to see that be the same, I would have been surprised if the long shaft and carrier bearings matched as the dealer claimed.

    The correct shaft will set you back a bit. $$$$. You need the correct complete one. Only changing 1/2 will bind when raised.


    I would double check the upstop while you are at the dealer, I'd put odds at 50/50 on that.

    As far as I know the shaft that the sprocket is on does not change depending on tractor model, only the implement shaft that goes to it does.

    Thats the one the dealer finally got for me, after saying the shaft and bearing from a 455 would work. Hoping the local jd is open tomorrow, will check it out. Thank you guys for your help and guidance.

    I just checked JD parts and the short driveshaft is not the same for 455 and x495
