36" Snowthrower on B210

Recommended Posts

I may be setting up a 36" Snowthrower on my B210. I'm looking for feed back from anyone with experience using this or a similar setup. I've used the 42" snow blade for the passed 4 years put there's only so much you can push.

Rob, I also used to use a 42" Snow Blade and had the same problems, eventually there is no where left to push the snow, or if it drifts to much, you almost can't push it. I know a lot of people say to push it "way off of the drive the first few times and then you have room to work". In my opinion, the problem with this is you end up driving onto your grass early in the snow season, before the ground is frozen, and it tears the heck out of the lawn. I also found, no matter how I tried, I always ended picking up gravel from the drive and would then spend a month in early spring raking it back out of my grass. Snowblowers are great. The do not seem to pick up nearly as much gravel, you can blow all of the snow to the downwind side and will get less drifting later, and best of all, you never have to drive off of your drive to remove the snow. The only downside I have seen to the single stage Blowers is that they don't throw snow real far without a full auger, but far enough. Hope I didn't sound to opinionated. Oh, I have a 2012 and about 500' of gravel drive. Mike

I have a 36" on my 2110.I also have a blade on a 712H.In the light fluffy snow,snowblower is the way to go. If the snow is the wet slushy stuff,then the blade does a better job. I've had the snowblower setup for about 3 years now,and haven't had any freezeup issues.
