snow thrower?

Recommended Posts

Heard there was going to be a big snowstorm this weekend so last night I pulled the blower I bought last year out of the shed and tried to mount it on the B-12.

It is a 42" blower for a 7000 series but I figured I could work around the issue of not being able to turn it off by carefully choosing where I drove it. I've never used the tractor mounted blowers before and found that it clogged almost instantaneously, and when it did shoot the snow it only sort of squirted out, I did wire wheel most of the rust out of the shoot, and the snow was only 2 or 3 inches deep, and the drive belt was not slipping but once the schute clogged it basically pushed the snow like a snow blade. How fast should the auger turn? How wet of snow is too wet to blow? My Dad used his "green" walk behind blower and it didn't clog at all so I'm thinking I must be doing somethine wrong here.

Well if your blower is for a 7000 series, and your using it on that tractor, that is your problem. The pulleys are all wrong. The older blowers used a 5 inch pulley and you would put a 4 1/2 on the engine, on the later blowers, they used a 7 inch pulley and a 6 1/2 on the engine. Your set up is a 4 1/2 on the engine and a 7 inch on the blower. That combo will be way too slow.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
