    Runs off the rear PTO through a gearbox, with a shaft underneath.I've got 120hrs on the tractor since mid December, and I've put about 25hrs on since the blower went on a couple of weeks ago. I was using a rear blower until I got this installed

    Very nice looking rig. I'm amazed at how the hood on the tractor slopes so much. Must be good for loader work.

    Congrats, hopefully it will make lots of coin for you.

    When you're in the cab you don't see the hood for the dash, it's awesome, you have a clear view of the blower, and I haven't had the loader on it yet, but i would imagine you'll be able to see the bucket clearly.

    The lift capacty on the 3 point hitch is around 9000lbs and the loader is 4400 lbs to max height. The whole setup including blower setup, loader and taxes was around $90k.

    Could you post some more detailed pictures of your mounting system up front? it looks like you custom built one to fit the mounts for the loader boom. I like the idea of a parallelogram linkage up front for the blower lift, it keeps it tucked in nice and tight to eliminate the leverage effect.

    I think i speak for all of us when I say i's like to see some video of that bad bow tearing into a snowdrift. The blower fan looks to be a good size, it must really chuck the snow!! i like the connected linkage for the chute deflector, nice, smooth transition so as not to reduct the snow's velocity too much,

    LOL, Blue light is on a swivel, which is good, otherwise I would have torn it off a dozen times now, the antenna on the other hand is not, and I have replaced it once already.

    Wow that sure looks nice!!! Frame looks real sturdy, but the front looks quite low to the ground. Maybe it is just the picture though. Would really like to see that thing in action:).

    Ya, the frame comes down pretty low, they likely figured anywhere it was going it would be following the blower, so it shouldn't hit anything.

    I got some video the other day so I just have to figure out how to post it.
