    Snowblower PTO wobble?

    First time using the front mount snowblower on my 2210. Wondering if the wobble is normal or not? The shaft is an adjustable one with about a 10" extended towards the front of the tractor.

    Normal or not I'm not sure, but my neighbors 2210/47 SB looks the same. It got better when he upgraded to the newer style CV joint but it still wobbles some.

    Thank you, hopefully it is normal!

    Any suggestions on your bolt on hooks and making a decision about style and placement? My friend can weld them on for me if I went that route, but I am having trouble deciding on what makes sense to purchase. I know it is a preference and should fit the use of the machine, but still. Suggestions?

    Maybe just me eyes - at the end of the video showing where the shaft goes into the blower looks really loose.

    Thanks, I will double check the quick connects and bolts again just to be sure.

    Most customers with your sized machine get two hooks, or two of the hook/clevis combo's and mount them inline with the loader arms. There are lot's of pictures in the gallery and in our vendor forum.

    That doesn't look right to me at all. Eventually that oscillation is going to break something. I especially don't like the wobble at the end of the video on the snow blower connection end of the shaft.

    Take a look at this video:



    I don't see any deviation in the shaft at all.

    I'll try disconnecting the snowblower and running the PTO without an attachment to see if the wobble is the PTO output to the (PTO-attachment adapter) what's this called? Or if it is the shaft off of the snowblower to the adapter.

    I agree. Those joints and yokes are taking a pounding.

    It's called a front quick-hitch.

    Here's another video with a 2210 snowblowing. The PTO shaft from the tractor to the quick-hitch looks perfectly stable:
