    Anyone have any ideas on mounting a PTO driven three point snowthrower on a 1993 GMC Suburban?
    The snow in Colorado gets too deep to plow with the Suburban, and I already have a 7' wide 3' tall two stage blower.

    Northern Tool used to sell a snow thrower which mounts just like your snow plow up front with a motor of it's own to power the unit.

    it would be a major PITA to run a PTO shaft to a front mounted blower. you might have better luck running central huydraulics and running a blower that way. but, yes there is a but, a snowblower requires a lot of power to run, so your suburban might not be able to run it.

    Might want to wait for that Super Expensive pickup truck with snow blower to be listed on Ebay for the 3rd consecutive year.

    Did someone ever buy that thing?

    I think it was even from Colorado.

    I was just thinking the same thing, actually thought it was going to be yet another post about it...
