    Can someone give me insight?
    I need to put a snowblower on a truck,we have no where to plow the snow in our residential settings.
    I have no expierence with Hanson blower but a 27 HP on a tractor would never do it.
    I have been working with a Hydro shop and snowblower company for weeks now trying to figure out the power plant for the bed of the truck to run the blower. Cans omeone tell me what kind of problems I might have with this setup?
    I think I'm going with a Kubota V3300-E @ 2600 RPM which will give the pump 64 HP @ 2300 . This should give the pump 30 GPM at 3000 psi.
    The skidsteer guys told me this is the flow I need!

    Thanks Mike

    some standard diesel pickups (like f-350s+) have a PTO option if i remember right. would that be enough to push a blower, or are they more for just dump bodies and such?
