Yes it is a 84 " Erskine and I modified the end of the chute by extending it and added a hydraulic cylinder to it to have more control of the discharge. It is a heavy duty snowblower and still going strong after 11 years of commercial use.
Small world. I grew up in Erskine MN. Dad worked for Erskine Mfg. for 15-20 years.
Their build quality and strength, are unmatched IMHO. I have pictures of prototype blowers, blowing snow OVER the top of high line wires. It was a big step for the company when they went from a pull type V-shape, to the reverse mount blowers. Even bigger, when they started the front mount stuff. It was fun to see the transition of that company. They were/are the exclusive builder of most of the genuine Bobcat attachments and Bobcat liked their stuff so much, that 12+- years ago...they bought the company. My family and the original family are still very close. Wayne G. had many tough years prior to making it BIG, in that business. Dad also designed the press drill transports, that JD
uses to move 120' + of press drill, down the road like a train.
A few blips of the hydro levers and the whole thing folds up, as you drive away with it. Skid Steer Attachments - Erskine Attachments, Inc.
Some can now understand why I like to "play" with my toys. Just can't leave them stock. Have a good source of info, when I want to "improve" something.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Don. Glad dads handy work is still in use...
