    If you have a tractor with at least 85hp + , and the pronovost would be the machine to buy.
    But good luck getting them now, their all sold out until next year! :cry: I just inquired for one today at my dealers.

    Go with a Pronovst they are well built machines. Hey Creative, what are you looking for exactly, maybe I can help.

    With that tractor, you may be underpowered for that size. The RAD puts you at or below the min PTO hp according to tractor specs I found on the net. You are at the low end with the Pronovost-Puma. For tractor snow blowers, it is generally recommended to stay near the top of the recommendations. If you have a Pronovost dealer near you, I would suggest you consult with them for sizing. Your snow conditions will have a lot to do with it

    The Puma 72" lists recommended HP as 18-25 pto hp. My Kubota is rated @ 36 engine hp +/-. I think that would cover it. It does depend on the snow as well, not necessarily looking for something to throw snow 75' or something.

    I just picked up a Provonost Lynx model for my L3400. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it looks like a solid piece of equipment.

    I have a pronovost PXPL 98 on order, should be here in early December. After two years of looking at all brands, nothing seemed as well constructed as the Pronovost brand.
