Can anyone confirm that a 44 inch Deere model 7001M snowblower will fit on a 2018 X590 using the standard front hitch.

The 47 inch blower has a model number of 7002M. I'm assuming the difference is only width of blower but all other elements being the same. I'm looking at a used 44 inch one with hitch and suitcase weights for a very nice price. By account of the photo it looks like a clean fit. The owner was running it on an X300 tractor.

I'm not sure, Thanks for posting that, after Moving from Northern Michigan to Alabama I forgot what one of those looked like.

That snowblower has a lifting rod that attaches to a tab on the tractor's lift mechanism. On my 2016 X580 that
tab is not there. See if that tab is on your tractor

I know what you're talking about and that part would need to be purchased separately. I'm not sure if they sell it separately because it comes standard in the lift mechanism for hydraulic tractors.

I wonder if they would make you buy the blower attachment kit for 2016+ X5xx tractors. I'm not sure buying
the just the part with the tab would fit.

I think JD completely changed the lift setup on the 500 series. Setup in the picture looks exactly like my 2014 X540 stuff. Mine had a jack shaft installed to move that rod.

I see on Deere's parts sight you can buy the parts needed. However, it looks like Deere has changed the set up for the 2018 plus X590 series snow blower kit. So, I may have to just go all new everything.
