It'll handle a SB1154 just fine. The dealers tend to be a little skittish on selling those things. I asked several dealers about the SB1164 for my 2032R and several told me that was the absolute largest blower that the 2032R could handle. I have my doubts.

I suspect the 1025R would handle most 60" rear blowers with no problems.

The 1-series will handle the 54-inch 3PH blower just fine. That is about the perfect size. Most of the time even with big snow falls it is only the first pass that is difficult. Even then, going slower usually gets you through. After that you can choose to take full or partial swaths depending on snow conditions.

I'm going on record as saying a 3PH snow blower will handle deeper snows better than the front 54-inch for two reasons. One, the housing is taller allowing it to gobble up deeper snow before it starts to "tunnel". And second, the 3PH blower has a much larger STEEL impeller with little curved cups on the end. An impeller of that design will move MUCH more snow than the smaller flat-bladed plastic impeller on the front model.

jim have you had a front mount before? which is better
I haven't used a front blower. I initially purchased my tractor with the front plow. I like using the plow for most storms but wanted a blower for the two or three "big" storms we get every year and I didn't want to have to swap back and forth between a plow and blower on the front end. Plus, the 3pt blower was a lot cheaper.
