3 Belt Blower, 990175 on Big 10

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see what shape it was in, excellent just like the rest. sm01 Took an hour to mount it and check it out, then ran it for about 45 minuites. Everything here is packed snowbanks and ice, couldn't give it a fair tryout. :(! But seat time is seat time, especially when it's a nice seat! :D:D:D I can see where these blowers could get annoying.... Sickle bar is next, wonder how it will do on icecicles?

I had issues with mine, turned out the front belt tensioner was seized. I tore everything apart, lubes everything, tightened the chain, put on all new belts, adjusted the belts and the thing is a monster now :). No issues, no complaints cuts right into snow banks. Still want to try th 42" single belt some day.

Real neat looking pictures, great close ups (the best I've seen!). I wonder has anyone tried to hook up a single belt from the mid-mount PTO? with the correct hitch it looks like it would work. jh

The 990175 36" Rotary Snow Thrower shown is made for the 725 but should fit any large frame FDT. This is the first time I've touched it, and it went right on and works great. The engagement handle leaves a little to be desired, but it's Simplicity's first tractor mounted snowblower and for that I'd say it's pretty fine. sm01

Great job Larry, and nice looking set up! I really appreciate the detailed pics. I've always wondered how those went on. Someday I might try something like this for one of my Landlords!
