I just scored a 47" snowblower, quick hitch and shaft kit off of a 2010-12? x744 for $500. Pretty sure it was a 744, it was a 2 wheel drive all wheel steer model and it looked to be older than my 2013 x758. I have a QH and 54" plow blade (used from the dealer) that I've been using since the tractor was new and was told by the dealer it was off a 2305. There is no sticker on my hitch to identify the model, hence why I'm here making this post. I put my hitch and the one that came with the blower side by side and they look the same (other than the blower hitch not having an angle cylinder) and the major mounting points of the hitches all measure the same. Did deere make just one QH for the x700/2300 tractors and then just outfit it with the cylinders it needed for the attachment? Does deere stamp the model on the QH anywhere so if the sticker goes missing it can still be identified? Next is the shaft situation, I know I can't use the 2wd shaft, I need the floater shaft that goes in my front axle, a short shaft that runs from my axle to the blower and the long one that runs from the PTO to the axle. I'll get those online and considering I only spent $500 on the whole setup, I won't mind spending another $500 on shafts considering i have yet to find a complete used setup like this locally for less than $2000. My last question is the blower itself, a 47" 2 stage blower for the QH set up are all one in the same, right? There aren't multiple models of 47" QH snowblowers are there? Thanks for any help, guys. Few pics attached. My original hitch is the one in the pic that has the bar attached on the side to keep the hoses off the front axle/tire.

Someone will correct me I'm sure, but I think the quick hitch and the blower are the same for quite a few different tractors, with the difference being in the hitch adaptor bracket to mount to the tractor and the driveshafts. Your QH looks just like mine on my 1025.

This comes up on a recurring basis and the only answer I can give is "I dunno". The portion of the hitch in your pics *appears* to be the same for all machines but... Deere assigns different part numbers for various "models".

The kit for the X400/500/X700 machines is Deere Part # BM26236
The kit for the 2210 and 2305 SCUTS is Deere Part # BM20921

If you look at the parts breakdown for those two (and there are at least 4 others as well!), the part numbers for the front portion that attaches to the blower, the triangular center piece and all of the hydraulics are the same. But the rear up right piece has different part numbers even though they all look the same.

My last question is the blower itself, a 47" 2 stage blower for the QH set up are all one in the same, right? There aren't multiple models of 47" QH snowblowers are there?
Well of course there are different 47" blowers! You didn't think Deere was gonna make this sort of thing easy now, did you? :laugh:

Quick Hitches
The quick Hit for the 425 thru 455 will fit But You Have to Take Your deck Off In order to use them On the X465 thru X758 Most of us do for winter anyways But If some People Have quick dozing or Tractor shovel Job then It Might be Inconvenient

The quick Hitch for the following Tractors are Basically the same
X465 - 2WD OR AWS
X475 - 2WD OR AWS
X485 - 2WD OR AWS
X495 - 2WD OR AWS
X575 - 4WD
X585 - 4WD
X595 - 4WD
X700
X720
X724AWS
X728 4WD OR AWD
X729 AWD & AWS
X740
X744AWS
X748 4WD OR AWD
X749 AWD & AWS
X710
X730
X734AWS
X738AWD
X739 AWD & AWS
X750
X754 AWS
X758 AWD
2210
2305
1023E

1025R
2025R Pre 2017 and after 2017
2032R Pre 2016
2320
2520
2720
4100 series Small Frame compacts
Basically any Small Frame Deere compact Prior to 2016 That used a quick Hitch will be compatible with a X758 The Biggest difference will be the length of the Hydraulic Hoses as the Small Frame compact used Longer Hoses for the Hydraulic cylinders On the quick Hitch.

I kept my quick Hitch from My 2017 1025R to use on my 2018 2025R and it also fit's Just fine On My X748 as well. Though I already Have a quick Hitch from My X485 which I use On the X748:bigthumb:

Here's a link to some information that may help to answer your questions: Used John Deere 47" & 54" Snow Blower Buying Guide

Hope it helps!
Ignore the different Part Number for the quick hitches listed In the Link all Of them are really the same Just the Ones for the Compacts Have different Hose Links and the One for the 425 thru 455 You Can't Have Your deck On at the same time as the quick Hitch:bigthumb:

You just were not Looking in the right Place

For John Deere Lawn & Garden tractor's 1963 till 1992 WFM is the place to look

For John Deere Lawn & Garden tractor's 1992 and after MTF is the place to Look

For John Deere Sub compacts to the 4WD tracks Green Tractor Talk is the forum to look at

Thank you for all the help, guys! I just went and sat down at the dealership parts counter and figured out the shafts I need. I have on more question. Is anyone familiar with what JD calls the draft arm locks that allow you to lock the draft arms up to the frame when a deck is not attached? I saw in one of the youtube how to videos on mounting the blower up that the guy swung a lock latch down that grabs the draft arms. The parts guy and I looked on their parts program and were unable to find anything like that. Start at the :40 mark, those are the locks I'm looking for.

Hey guys, back on this thread with a few more questions. As luck would have it I got to chatting with the service manager at the dealership when I was in buying a cutting edge for my plow and he traded me even up my 2 wheel drive front PTO shaft that came with my blower for the rear and intermediate shafts with the bearings, snap rings and seals for the intermediate shaft! So now all i need is the very front shaft that goes from the blower to the floating PTO shaft in my front axle. From what I'm reading, that shaft would be included in the upstop kit, is that correct? I was told that the shaft on my quick connect kit for my deck, the one that goes from the rear axle output shaft to the deck arms quick coupler, can be removed from under my tractor and used up front for my blower. The blower came with a short shaft section on it; just a splined female yoke end with a u-joint then about 8" long square shaft. Under my tractor I looked and noticed the deck drive shaft end with the locking collar on the female splined end, the end I'd need to snap onto the front axle PTO shaft, has the female square tube on it that would slide right onto the square shaft of the one already attached to my blower. Looks like when I install the rear and intermediate shafts I'll have to try it out. Any tips on installing the shaft in the front axle? I'm not in a service truck anymore so I have very limited tools at home to do this project with. Looks like just pop the plastic caps out of the axle housing, drive the bearings in, seals, snap rings and then slide the axle in, right? Shouldn't be too complicated. Thanks guys.
