snow blower conversion

Recommended Posts

dav
I have a shot at getting a late sixties a-c snow blower. My tractor is a '65 Big Ten which I think uses the 3 belt blower. Has anyone modified a later blower to fit an earlier tractor? What major problems am I apt to run into? Bending metal and welding are no problem. Will the 10 horse motor give enough power or will the snow land on the front tire? Any comments would be appreciated

I'd go for the single-belt blower over the 3-belt blower, any day. With the 3-belt, you have to get off the tractor, walk to the front, and engage the impeller. With the single-belt, you simply sit in the seat and push/pull a rod to engage it. Any yellow 36" single-belt blower for the larger tractors (i.e. not a B-206/207/208) will mount right on it, and you're in business. I use this single-belt blower from my B-210 on my Big Ten all the time... http://simpletractors.com/operation/snow_thrower/single_belt.htm A 10HP is plenty. You may need to either put a speed reduction pulley on it, to slow it down for really BIG snows like this, though... I was using Low/Low or 2nd/Low on my high-low...
