You’re going to have a lot of fun with a real snowfall not going to lie, a little suspenseful in the beginning when you were backing into the garage
$3000? Not even close. JD uses the ala carte system. The 54" blower alone is ~$2550. Then you have to add the front PTO kit, Quick Hitch, implement drive / up stop, front support and remote spout control. Which will bring you up around $4800.nice video. thanks for sharing.. I've yet to see if one can justify spending $3k for a snowblower to blow 2 inches of snow?
I just priced the 59" front snow blower from Mutton for my 2038R. Granted I already have the front 3 point hitch, but if I did not, it would cost me $6,294 plus $250 shipping to get what is needed from Mutton. Costs break down as follows: Blower - $4,299, Front 3 Point Hitch - $1,404, Snow Blower mount & Drive Shaft - $325, Front PTO - $266, Shipping $250.$3000? Not even close. JD uses the ala carte system. The 54" blower alone is ~$2550. Then you have to add the front PTO kit, Quick Hitch, implement drive / up stop, front support and remote spout control. Which will bring you up around $4800.
That is why a lot of folks go with a rear 3PH snow blower. It ends up being about 1/2 the price for the same size blower. Although your neck may not be too happy with you.
The prices I was quoting above were MSRP as listed on the JD web site "build your own" tool. Obviously you can do a bit better.Maybe you need to find a different dealer..............My 54" blower with all components to run it was $3595 + tax when I bought it with the tractor in April. :dunno:
Same with the new JD electric spout control. It lists for nearly $500 on the Build You Own tool (actuator + wiring harness). I would imagine the 54" blower with the new electric spout control would be close to if not a wee bit over $4K.Forgot about the electric spout flapper control......somewhere around $100 for the kit.
