A couple of Pics of My new 2720

Just received my new 2720 onTuesday have not had time to put her to work yet.
But I did drive around the yard some.
Got the 54 SnowBlower which was delivered on the pallet.
I was reading the books and was wondering how the hitch bracket mounts.
I included a picture if it.
The picture in teh book does not show the hood gaurd on the tractor.
Does the hood gaurd have to come off?
It appears there are two flat plates that can't find in the boxes which bolt in place of the hood gaurd. and this braket connects to those with a long pin.

Is this correct?

I too, have a 2720 and have been plagued with the front attachments. If you use a MMM, the front brackets will not install unless the Snow blower plates are removed. There is interference at the attachment points.
My brush guard came with 8 aluminum spacers that go outside the weight frame between the frame mounting of the brush guard plate. They sandwich in-between those plates, where the snowblower plates have been removed.

Then the front mower brackets mount on the inside of the weight bracket. These are all held together with the stove bolts originally there...and it is a nice mess holding it all together while you make the change from winter to summer.

So, in short..for summer MMM, the order is from outside to inside....bolt head, spacer, weight frame, front mower mount, nut.
It took me several hours when I first tried the changeover to configure this all correctly. It is a nightmare that I don't intend to repeat!

If you don't need the MMM mount, I think you will not need to change this and the blower brackets should be fine all year. No spacers required either.

Hope this helps.

Bless you, Kennyd!!!

I have been rather frustrated with the changeover this past couple of years. You are the first to find me a solution. I've struggled with my dealer and on another forum explaining the unique problem with the 2720...and you have solved this!

And, thanks to you and Randy for the kind welcome to deere talk.
