Blew a tube, now Ugly-A is the snowdog

Recommended Posts

My 9hp just blew the axle tube yesterday while plowing. It has been running like a watch ever since redoing the valves, Magnetron8D and transmission pinion in the summer. When I did the transmission I inspected for tube cracks and found a hair of one starting in the keyway. I ground it down and filled it with a very hot weld, ground it smooth and figured it was good. Apparently not. At least I found one on ebay for $140 shipped. In the mean time I have to use my standby tractor, the Allis b210. Good runner but I am not sold on the variable system yet. The eventual plan was to have a blower on it to take advantage of the variable speed, but my job has been falling way short on the pays. That leaves it as a plow tractor with the 46" dozer. That brings to the question, has anyone used a variable for dozer? If so, what are the most successful tips/adjustments to make on it to get the most "oomph"?

I pushed snow with my B-112 for several years. I don't recall that I used the vari-drive to change speeds. I plowed light snow in 3rd. gear, heavy in 2nd. You will need a good belt and correct drive adjustment for pushing heavy snow. If the B210 drive is in decent shape, you should not notice much difference from your round hood.
