    I just got a price for a Provonost 62" snowblower from my local Kubota dealer - $2050 or $30 more for the 70"! Seems kind of low? Are these machines any good? Anyone have experience with them. I'll be putting it on a Kubota L3400 Shuttle shift. I'm only using it to clear my shop and the neighbors driveway so I don't need anything super rugged, but I don't want to toss my $$ out the window either.

    They make a great snowblower. Really well built, they know their stuff. How many HP is that Kubota. The 62 " might be your best bet.

    It is a Kubota L3400 with the manual transmission. The literature lists the hp at the pto at 29hp, net for the engine is roughly 33hp. I had the same thought about the size. The only difference between the 62" and the 70" is the width. All of the other components are the same so I would basically be trying to cram and extra 8" of snow with the same power. First giveaway was, the extra width was only an extra $30.
