    Not sure if I want a rear facing or rear pull blower on my 24hp Kubota. I have a 60" blade up front. I don't like the idea of constantly looking and driving backwards, but not sure if I want to drive over the snow before blowing it either. This machine will be at an hoa with separate drives and garage doors to clean out. Thanks.

    When we first started out w/ HOA's in the Late 80's, we used a JD 855. That wasn't much more than 24hp and we put a MASSIVE (well, 80" hehe) snow bucket on it, 7' back blade, and we was in high cotton baby It will work and some day he'll get a bigger one.

    Triple L is right, your only option is a standard blower.

    snow etc.

    a narrow blower will be better for the 7610 and you wil have 5 HP per foot
    if you buy a 48 inch unit from Pronovost with dual hydraulics,
    mount pneumatic casters and you will be all set.

    You are 100% correct Trip. I'm just saying, If that's what he's got,..... it will work! If he has the dough, he can go bigger, if not, make do till you can afford to get a little bigger machine. I know of at least 2 or 3 guys running about 24hp 4x4 w/ 60" blower on front and 72" blade on the rear. Look I know it ain't no Ebling, but it will move snow.
