    New to site, recently purchased 2010 JD 2305

    Love the 2305 so far. Purchased 54 inch mid-mount mower and 47 inch snow blower. Also picked up 17C polycart. Sounds odd, but I cannot wait for first snow to see how the blower performs.

    Welcome to DT Clay, You'll love the blower. You may want to use a little weight out back, I use my ballast box, R4's, and no chains. Works for me.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thanks Randy. Will certainly consider ballast box for rear weight. The machine came with R4s and I have already found the 4wd impressive. Can't say enough about the tractor and mower so far.

    No loader yet but would like to get 200cx one day. Would also like a set of Frontier cultivators.

    Hi Clay,

    Congratulations on a great machine! You might enjoy some of the videos of my former 2305 with 47 blower on YouTube such as www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLdVuk4_J0k

    After my first season of blowing, I didn't bother with the ballast box anymore and noticed no significant difference and enjoyed being able to get into tighter areas. I also don't use chains. That would have a detrimental effect on my 7 year blacktop sealant! You can find lots of opinions on these factors.

    I highly recommend the Remote Spout Control Kit for the blower, especially if you have a lot of obstructions where you want to blow the snow.

    Thumbs up Thanks Chris

    Believe it or not, your videos were a huge factor in my decision to go with the 2305 as an all around machine to suit my needs. Small world! I was considering an older 1055 with rear 60 inch Woods blower; however, I could not take care of the grass with the 1055. So, I happened upon your videos. If I have watched them 50 times, I have not watched them once! So, I owe you thanks for such well done videos. Jd corporate should thank you too!

    On another note, excuse my ignorance, but just what is that remote kit you mentioned to help with tight spots?

    Best,

    Clay

    If I may, the kit that Chris is referring to is the REMOTE SPOUT CONTROL kit numeber BM20960. It controls the hieght of the discharge with out leaving the seat. It is a great accessory. I made my own mounting bracket as I was not completely satisfied with the Deere one. Oh this blower just happens to be mounted on my 2520 but basically mounts the same on the 2305.

    Sorry Chris, I beat you to it.

    Randy is the direction of the spout itself adjustable via hydraulics?

    Thanks

    Thanks Randy. Funny that you mention making your own bracket. With the new machine, I got all of the parts for moving my blower over to the 2520 from the 2305. One of them was the handle mounting bracket of this Spout Control kit. It came as bare metal, bagged in oil, no finish. I also had no instructions on where it goes and there wasn't any obvious place on the tractor. I got the instructions and now know that it calls for holes drilled in the pan and so forth. In looking at it, I was also thinking of making something more likeable instead. Your solution is REALLY nice.
