I have been at this 20 +years I have done none of the fabrication only provided ideas

My blower started out way back as an Erskine behind blower with manual chute rotation and snout control
Now is green front mounted with hydraulic control for chute and snout control
And best of all has a Curtis cab for this winter

Will start with how I begin in the fall
First you can see the bucket on its cart and the blower on its ready for blower to on FEL frame
Next is JD standard hook and pin attachment

From the left rear is seen the PTO hydraulic pump and source of power for chute controls and blade turning

Modified "turf bar from pickup plow for unfrozen early on driveway
"pusher plate" makes snow blower into a snow bucket for early wet light snows
chute lined with pieces from a child's "flying carpet" if and when snow plugged things up much easier to clean out
chute shovel and wrench for when things plug and jam
because the blower runs on the PTO have put a knob on 3 point control to aide in telling them apart with mittens on
