Very nice! You did an awesome job editing and timing with the sound track. It was enjoyable to watch.

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

You have a talent for video production! Almost like Survivorman (Les Stroud) with a snow blower! Like others I was wondering just how close you were going to get to the house. :laugh:

And every time I see one of these kinds of videos, when it's approaching the camera I am always hoping for the snow to splatter all over the camera and block the view! There's something wrong with me!:lol::lol:

Great video. I loved the dramatic effect at the beginning with the chute turning side to side, the augers spinning, the blower being lifted up and down. Have fun and be safe

You are really good with the editing. With the sound choice and video intro I was expecting to see a 1 series head out into 2' of snow.

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?

$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. :)

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:


Forgot about the electric spout flapper control......somewhere around $100 for the kit.

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.

That's a lot of bananas....

Sincerely

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.

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.
