Husqvarna/Craftsman snow thrower to 6500 series

Recommended Posts

I picked up a duel stage snow thrower like new condition model 486.248371. I'm not a big fan of Craftsman but I talked to people that have used the thrower and were very pleased with it's performance. I have everything to mount it. Has anyone ever attempted to mount one to a 6500 Simplicity? Any input would be appreciated.

I have a craftsman blower/14hp mower setup as well as my 7116 with a blower. The craftsman blower performs better, most likely due to the fact that the drum is 2x or more in diameter. That keeps the snow further out on the drum and therefore it has more velocity. I suppose this would decrease the internal volume of the blower, but I've never managed to overload or plug it. It even has old-school spherical wood bearings!
