    snowblowers?

    What's everyone running for snowblowers on your machines, if you have them? The ~$3000 they quoted me for a front-mount 54" JD blower seemed like a bit much (blower + front QH), so I was thinking of getting a rear mount one. What are brands people are familiar with and what are your experiences with them?
    thanks in advance-

    The 54 is a great unit and worth the cost.

    I am running the 54 front mount. Bear in mind that the mounting can be used for other attachment, for example, I use the front mount 60 brush also. It can also take the 54 blade. If it is only a bit much I would say go for it. You won't look back.

    Was the front PTO included in that price?

    If the PTO shaft is what you mean, yes. The front mount snowblowers use the mid-mount pto on the tractor which is standard equipment.

    Snow Blower

    After a lot of shopping and research purchased my 2720 with the front Mount 54" Blower.
    Since I just got it in April I have not had to use it yet.

    But Winter is coming....

    Question When Itake the 200CX loader off and put the Snow Blower On should I reduce the amount of Weight in the weight box. I am currently running about 850lbs in the box.
    Blower only weighs 350, I was thinking that approx. 400lbs should be enough for winter weight.
    When blower is down no weight on Front End the 400 adds to the rear traction weight. When blower up the 400 counter balances the 350 hanging on Front.


    What is everyone thoughts on weight?

    I use the same weight in the BB for the FEL and the blower, approx. 800lbs. Bear in mind that you have 4WD, locking diff., and steering breaks. All this makes for quite a snow machine. I have had no problems with this combination. Just my 2 cents.

    Correct. I reduce ballast for the front snowblower. This aids in keeping weight on the front to improve steering when the blower is running on the skid shoes.
