Thats what I need for my circle driveway, bet the wheels don't ride up on the snow bank like the tractor does..Got a few piece of one, tiller, now used on 725, tranny and handle bars at an auction for 5 bucks. Not enough to build one outta with no spare missing parts.. MPH

Those things are so interesting to me...I have only seen a handful of them and never seen one run...Is that blower on it the same as a Broadmoor blower?Sure looks like it to me... If I ever find a deal on one of those old WB's I just might have to try one...

The blower(or Rotary Snow Plow as they were called) is the same as the one that was adapted to the garden tractors and is commonly called a three belt blower. Since the engine of the walking tractors mounts sideways, there is just a belt driving the blower directly. if you look at a three belt blower you'll see that the drive pulley is mounted offset to the left of center where as the single belt blower has the drive pulley dead center.
