Single pulley snowblower hitch

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me placement on the pulley for the single pulley snowblower hitch. I have a double pulley hitch that’s missing parts. Figured I’d make the other hitch since i need the single pulley hitch anyways.

The attached pictures and dimensions are from a 1-pulley hitch used on 7100 Series and late model Sovereigns. If you are converting a 7000 series, the location of the pulley bracket may be located different due to wheelbase differences which will cause a difference in the plan view belt angle. I suggest welding in the new crossbar prior to removing the lower crossbar from the 2-pulley hitch.

Great advice. 

I had "my" welder (a neighbor friend) modify a 2 pulley hitch for me as I directed.  My first instruction was to cut off the bottom cross piece at the side.  After the first cut and that side of the hitch fell off, I realized that was a dumb first step.  dz

After that experience, he paid more attention to my instructions before executing them.  sm00

To enhance @Bill725 pics above, I'll add this one:

Also in Bill's "tunnel" pic above, notice the hub position of the driven pulley on the snowblower head - it's outboard, opposite of the 2 pulley hitch setup.  

If the hub isn't located correctly, that expensive long belt usually doesn't last very long.

Have a question did you modify the double hitch or are you still looking for a single one. I have been looking for a double one, maybe we can work something out

Ok sorry being so late to help you

Nope nothing to be sorry for. A lack of snow in my area has made a down turn in the market.

      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!😁
