    Help With 47 Blower on a 425

    Buying a 47 blower from a friend of mine for 400.00 that was used with a 318 model number MO2752.
    comes with the quick hitch for the 318.
    can you tell me what parts i will need? currently i have a 425 with the 54 inch blade.
    thanks

    The main thing will be making sure you have the mid pto shaft and the front bearing plate. They are usually on Ebay pretty regularly. Also, you will want to make sure the short pto shaft on the blower will work for your tractor. I do not remember the length for the 425 tractors, but it has to be sized correctly or it can bottom out if its too long when you lift the blower. Plus, you will probably need to make your hoses longer for the hydraulic shoot turn. I would sell the quick hitch from the 318 and it should pretty much finance the parts you need to make it work on your tractor.

    Good luck

    Not really, the hitches I have seen for the newer stuff is usually in the $3-350 range used, but not sure on the ones for the 300 series tractors, since that is when they first started coming out. Start high, and see if anyone makes you an offer.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Do you have any pictures you can post of the blower you are buying?? The reason I ask is that the specs for the blower for the 318 list it at a weight of 116 lbs where as the 47" two stage shaft driven blower for the 425 is 185lbs.

    I am wondering if the blower you are purchasing is compatible with the 425, 445, 455. Pictures would help as I certainly know what the 455 takes since I own one and am very familiar with it.

    How can you tell if its a model 47 blower? I see an ad that's selling one that has the model number of G050J. Will that fit on my 445?

    I found this handy chart on Mutton Power website. The model 47 is a two stage sniw thrower that can work on several different John Deeres. You already have the quick hitch. Good, that will save you some cash. If it's a power angle, you will need to put the lock pin back in so the hitch can't pivot. You have to unhook those hoses anyway so you can use the power discharge shute.

    I have two model 47" snow throwers. They are pretty nice attachments. I originally purchased my first one with my 445. I moved it to my X728. I had to change the up stop and PTO parts. The chain broke on my original 47" and I didn't have time to rebuild it. The propeller needed to be replaced also from hitting some buried stuff in the snow. The local John Deere dealer sold me a new 47" set up for my X728 so I could hit the ground running. My plan is to rebuild my original snow thrower.
