Blower hitch compatibility?

Recommended Posts

dentwizz
My dad wants a blower on his 2210 but he wants it to be the smaller size(since the 42" that I have won't fit his sidewalk) and there seems to be a lot of Broadmoor class units around. Would an FDT large frame hitch fit the mount holes of a Broadmoor blower? If so it would be nice and cheap to pair it together.

I don't know much about the small frame tractor stuff, but I thought the tunnel was narrower. I could be wrong. There should be plenty of 36" blowers around for the large frames though. Or maybe not since I have 5 or 6 for sale. ;);) Really, there should be some around.

No, the Broadmoor unit (which is 27" or 32") is narrower at the hitch connection. Hitch points are about 10.5" for the large frames, and just a few inches smaller for the Broadmoor. However, I think it would be a very simple modification to make it work! There are 36" inch size blowers that were made for the 4000/5000/ 6000 series (according to the site's "What Fits?" section). I have nver had one of those tractors, and I could not tell you what the normal hitch separation is for them. Tom

LOL, how bout I bring you 3 or 4 and you sell them down there. I can't seem to give away a 36" up here in western NY. Everyone wants 42" or bigger up here. LOL

Here's a $100 older style single belt Allis snowblower with FDT hitch and drift cutters in New Egypt,NJ: http://cnj.craigslist.org/grd/2696864988.html Is that too far away?

Sounds like it's time to buy a Broadmoor..... I had one last year to try that... Didn't like the tractor. Large frames do what I need and can do more, so I rather just keep to em. Good catch on that lead Phan, hopefully he still has it. BTW Rokon, I would love to consign down here. A quick sale is almost guaranteed.;)

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
