swap snowblower for mower deck on a legacy

Recommended Posts



I now most of you are more familiar with the older machines, but I need some help with my Legacy.

I am trying to swap the 46 inch snow blower over to my mowing deck. At this point I have removed the blower and sub frame. On the Legacy I still have the lift arm attached to the tractor. I cannot find any way to remove it. That said I don't know if the deck needs it or not. I cannot find any attachment points on the deck for this lift arm.

I am at a loss here so any information you can provide would be a big help.

My lawn is growing and I need to cut it.

There are two carriage bolts that have to be removed to remove the arm from the bracket attached to the lift cylinder/rocker assembly.

You may have to put some down pressure / weight on the lift mechanism to lower it when attaching the lift chains for the deck.

Thanks that was a big help. I was working on a wrong assumption. I thought the lift arm stayed with the tractor. But as you pointed out the lift arm goes with the snowblower.

I will say the blower, mounting system, and deck are very heavy for a Legacy. I don't want to be switching to often.

thanks again Brett, it was a big help.

I only know this because I helped out a couple who needed to change the plow blade to their deck. He had had open heart surgery and couldn't handle it. This was just a few weeks ago, so my learning experience helped your learning experience.dOd

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
