    I had post a pic of this blower a few weeks ago. Someone asked about the mount for the blade. It is a home design here are some pics

    the plates along the frame stay on the tractor. the two bolts in the front come out and you back out of the rest of it. Two pins near the rear axle also have to come out.

    a look from the under side. I have more pics of this if your intrested. I have about $3000 tied up in the mount alone. Including the hydralics. We did all the welding and assembly in our shop. I ran out of time for the paint. We rushed this into service two days before our Jan 29 blizzard this year. wow did it come in handy. Looking at designing another for a articulating tractor we have avilable. I'm buying a second sister blower to the one on this tractor for the articulating machine and going to try puting a 16' pusher on it. This one is a 20' fold up type that is a little big for this 225 HP tractor.

    Both nice set up's :)
     
  10. Chaser - nice set up.
    I'm looking at the same type of mount in the future. I have seen Degelman makes a similar type of mounting system but I'm not sure of the price. Just wondering if I should build one up like you did, or if would not be much more to just buy one?

    Degelman does have a nice mount. I have a 4430 with a 10' degelman power angle. Paid $10,000 for it ten years ago. It is much smaller than this set up. Its not as heavy duty as this mount either but it definitly comes off and on easier. I wasn't as worried about speed of puting it on and off. It will go on in the fall and come off in the spring. I paid $4500 for the blade and have about $2000 in metal and custom cutting. Another $1000 in misc and a ton of Labor. I would guess it would cost me 15-20 for a simuliar set up from Degelman.

    What size tractor is that JD 4760 4960 ? Just wondering, we have several of those tractors around my area. How wide is that blade and can you disconnect sections of it? Looks like great equipment!!:waving:

    its a 4955 about 220 pto hp. The blade is 20' and folds down to 10 for transport. Wings could be removed but not eaisly. I it pushes this blade fine but its a little too big for the job I have it at. Pushes much more than a 3 yard loader will.

    Heres a photo of it folded up

    I like the way it folds. Looks like a great set-up.
