    One Series Tractors are Powerful........ More than Less

    It still amazes me the power that diesel engine makes. With the last sample blast of early winter this week I got the 1023E out for some exercise in the driveway. With drifts hard packed and over 3 feet high, it handled it no problem. I had changed the snowblower speed, exchanging the 40 tooth sprocket for a 36 tooth and shortened the chain. It definitely made chain removal & lubrication easier by adding a master link. That sprocket change speed up the blower by 10%. It don't sound like much but it did throw that heavy hard pack and ice farther into the yard. Diesel power was undaunted at all speeds with the change. Tractor's diesel power and torque more than handled the 10% speed up. I can only see lesser dense and more normal fluffier snow being thrown even farther. The hard pack heavy snow was a good test for the sprocket change.

    Yes diesel power can be awesome. A couple years back, while my 1 series was at the dealer, we had a heavy 12" snow fall. I asked a friend up the road if he could plow my driveway when he had time. He tossed me the keys to his cabbed Kubota L something. It's in the ballpark of 60hp with at least a 72" front mounted blade. It had no trouble with 12" of heavy snow at idle. 1500rpm! Diesel power

    Just got a little over 2.5 feet of Lake effect with some drifts reaching 5 feet. I completely agree, these little things pack a punch. All I have for snow removal is my bucket and I tell ya what it was just fine. May buy a blower but using the bucket is way more fun!

    Went from blower to bucket when I upgraded in 2013. What took me 40 minutes with the old NH with a blower took me almost 2 with bucket. Yeah I know, more seat time. Not w/o a cab and the wind I had that fist storm..... blower was on order within the hour. Want a hard side too someday.

    Where did you find the 36 tooth sprocket? I love my blower, but my old Wheel Horse 520H with a single stage blower would throw snow farther. I would love to get more distance out of what I have now. The sprocket sounds like a cheap mod.

    Not only are they more powerful than a gas counterpart, but they do it on much less fuel. And, they're more durable. Win, win, win.

    Glad to hear you're enjoying your tractor and blower. Wondering same thing as others where did you find the 36 tooth gear ?


    SIL has owned a front blade for 8 years or more, would always use the fel , OH it is so much quicker..

    Last winter they had 30-36" snowstorm, After doing maybe 50-75' in close to 45 mins. Changed to front blade cleared his .3-.5 of a mile driveway in about 2-3 hrs. He is looking for a front snowblower and maybe a larger tractor ,he has a 2305 with hyd fan and 14 acres of woods.

    Ok fellas. Put chain sproket in google. It is a #40 chain. Look for one with for a 1 inch shafts size. There are lots of places on the net. Shy away from chinajunk. Will prolly run you 60 to 70 bucks for a decent one 25 to 40% more for a good one. Buy the midrange priced one. The one on the drive shafts side is junk anyway. By the way, they do not know how to make a welding jig where the welded sprokets is off center. Some worse than others. So good luck setting the chain tension. Rotate the drive while doing this. Split the difference.
    When I do my rightbuild, I am buying all SKF concentric locking bearings, Browning chain and gears and a new shaft as what is there cannot be reused. I also have already the original metal impeller to swap out the plastic junk impeller. That modification alone will throw the snow much farther. By the way, I will be switching to a #50 chain, like the older units were made. I am considering the appropriate sized Timing Belt set up. That would require fabrication of an enclosure to keep out ice snow or rocks out, but that would be a much better solution for driveline longevity. And before anyone says a belt won't take the torque/hp, i run that type set up on a homemade gen set. So very feasible. Just throwing the ideas out there. Might cost 400 to do it right, but what the hell. Already have 30k+ into tractor and equipment. What is $4 or 5 hundred more.

    My 54" blower seems to throw the snow plenty far with the stock sprockets...

    I did fix the chain tension when I got it, whatever part-time lackey set it up had the chain as tight as a gondola cable.
