    been looking into getting a front mount snowblower for my 1510 new holland tractor (30 hp)
    i now they make rear ones, but they just dont seem like the right thing for me, but then i saw the inverted rear blowers on a couple pictures on plowsite and thought with the little back blade that it has on it that i might be better than a front mount.
    What i need a snow blower for is for doing condo driveways, not the roadways. So doing 50 driveways that are 20-30 feet long. Can anyone give me some input on if that is a stupid idea? and if it's not who makes a inverted snowblower for a 30 hp tractor?

    The pull type blower will work just fine for that. I used to have a NH TC33 with a pull type blower. It was 6' wide.
    There are tons of manufacturers. Agrotrend, Meteor, Smyth, Roberge, Pronovost, Normand, Econor.

    That was a six foot smyth blower. It was a little too big for that tractor. I needed 300lbs of front weigh to keep the wheels on the ground. It blew pretty good but a 5 or 5.5 foot might have been a better fit for that tractor as it only had 33 hp.
    The smyth blower was garbage. it did not last one season. I spent more time welding it back together. There are much better brands out there for commercial use. This unit might hold up for residential use ... maybe.
