How tough is attaching a snowblower to this unit? I'm getting up there agewise, so this is a consideration whether I should consider a blower at all.

It's a rather subjective answer. Only you know your capabilities and restrictions, and what lies down the road...

They are heavy, and and require a little muscle to put on and take off. You could recruit a young buck to help with that, or a neighbor.

I found a moving dolly that works pretty swell for the front unit to help line it up take a lot of the weight off, a little wiggle and tilt and it snaps in quick.

Don't forget the adding weights and chains is a little cumbersome also. And what if you get stuck, do you feel your area to clear snow would lend well to a tractor mounted snowblower; that it doesn't have slopes or drop offs that if you fell of the main path it might be a problem?

Just some thoughts in my head, good luck and I leave by saying my 70 year old father has a 500 series with a blower and I think he still smiles inside when the wave of snow gets thrown 30-40 feet...

x2 - The movers dolly is the hot ticket. Makes the job a whole lot easier.
