    This thing is a beast, will go through a foot and a half of powder at walking speed(last year). Can't say enough about it. I bought a bigger more powerful one over the summer. It was a old belt wb with the deck taken off and a cub cadet tractor snowblower implement. 20hp 42'' path, single stage. It is over kill unless you have a foot of snow on miles of sidewalk, but had to have it. Will get pics eventually. jan16_001.jpg

    Other than use of the rear PTO, I could never understand trying to blow snow while backing up. Doesn't that get tiring, much less strain your neck?

    It isn't too bad in the tractor. The seats swivel so much that you don't have to turn as much as you would think. Of course its not a John Deere, so you might get a sore neck lol!

    Hello all. I have been lurking for a while and just registered to the site. For those of you who use those large PTO blowers like 4X4Farmer, how do they do on gravel? Are you able to hold the blower off the ground better and make less of a mess than you would with a snow plow?

    Depends on how well the driveway is graded.

    As far as blowing snow in reverse, its not bad at all. Like farm boss said, the seat swivals. Besides, whats the differnce, everything else we do with a tractor where always looking back. Digging, planting, spraying, mowing, your always looking back, so I guess im just used to it. Yes once in awhile your back and neck get sore, but thats just part of farming. Like after the first day in the fall while swathing wheat down with a pull type, now thats a pain in the neck! lol I probably wouldent want to do a bunch of commercial work with a rear mounted snowblower, but for on the farm it works fine. Oh, and as far as the gravel goes, its got shoes on it, and we set it about an inch off the ground, we dont need it cleaned right to the ground at the farm.
