I am looking at a used snow blower. The ad says 47" quick hitch snow blower. I contacted the seller and he said he "thinks" it was used on a 700 series. The only information he could provide was the blower part # of DE18720. If it was used on a 700 series, is there any chance that the quick hitch and shaft would work on a 2305? Is there a magic chart that shows a cross-reference for compatibility?

Thanks in advance.

Blower part number

Saw your post and went out to my garage to look at the new blower I just purchased in April for my 2305. It has the same part number DE 18720. It is a 47inch quick hitch blower. Looks to me like you might be in business here but I am no expert. You may want to check with your local dealer regarding compatibility. Good luck.

ya, you might have to buy a quick hitch, and/or drive shaft. MAKE SURE you check with your dealer and are sure the drive shaft fits that tractor so you dont ruin your machine

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like the blower is a match. But I wonder how much the correct quick hitch and shaft will cost. He is asking $2000 for the set-up. I am concerned that it will not be cost effective if I have to buy the correct parts to use on my 2305.

Blower

The whole deal...blower, shaft, all parts ran me just over 3K brand new from dealer. Thought this might help you gauge which way to go. Good luck.

The blower is the same, but all the attaching parts and PTO are different. Expect to pay anywhere from $800 to $1200 for everything needed.

The x series quick hitch will work on the 2210/2305s. However you do need the two plates that mount to the frame and the upstop bracket/PTO ends like in the picture below. (front right in the picture). PTO driveshafts are different too.

Newt can you point out what part is the upstop bracket?
The large assembly on the left is the quick attach?

Maybe its not called a "upstop", but the large piece on the left is the "quick hitch".

Additional parts to make work from a X series to 2210/2305. There are attaching brackets (number 15) and the bracket on the right with the PTO stubs sticking out. Also the long drive shaft from the mid PTO to the front bracket will be different from a X series to a 2210/2305.

Here is Deeres parts page for the front quick hitch and brackets needed for a 2305 No 15 and 16.
