I hate to duplicate threads, but since my other one specifically asked about attaching/detaching a blade, I thought I'd better start one just to get thoughts on the advantages / disadvantages of using a blower over a blade. Not sure which way I want to go here. I bought a new 590 but didn't get any snow equipment with it (long story...explained in the other thread!)
I watched a video of a 590 owner switching his mower to blower and I gotta say that the blower that hooks on to these things really looks a bit unwieldy and heavy (he strongly suggested using a dolley to move it around).
One consideration I'm looking at very carefully is trying to work with items that are the least amount of weight and thus easiest to move around. As I'm getting older, I'm not as much a fan of lifting and moving large, weighty items! So the easiest (and yet effective) solution is probably the best. From watching the video, I'm truly wondering if simply buying a snow blower that is all ready to go might be a heck of a lot better than going through all the hassle of hooking the Deere blower up to the tractor!
Thanks for any thoughts...
