Single stage Snow blower

Recommended Posts


Not sure there is a standard RPM for the auger. Factory pulleys will turn it at factory spec but some have put a smaller pulley on the auger drive to increase speed. Never put a tach on mine on the BigTen to see the RPM but it moves a lot of snow easily.

Interesting question.  I have two single stage 42 inch snowblowers.  One is factory stock for my Allis T816, the other is factory stock for my 918 Agco Allis.  Had both mounted last winter.  The one on the T816 runs very noticeably slower than the one on the 918, and the performance is quite different also.  Both have the correct pulleys and hitches, to the best of my knowledge.  The T816 is driven by the engine pulley. the 918 off of the bevel gear box cone clutch.  I have wondered which is correct, or if there even is a correct.  So if anyone has any info, please post it, I am curious as well!

I believe there are 2 different sized driven pulleys on the snowblowers depending on the application whether driven  from front PTO or mid PTO or engine crank driven on the Sovereigns.  I think other tractors/models may have different sized driven pulleys depending on application also.

I may have to measure both of my pulleys.

I have a 42"  on my 7116 that is driven by the BG box.

I have a 36 on my 4211 that is driven by the engine crank. 

The one on the 7116 spins quite fast. Impressively. I run it pretty high to assure it stays clean.

I wonder if the chain drive is any different also. That would make sense too

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
