I have a john deere 318 that has a snow plow on the front and a snow blower on the front. I was wondering if you guys had and thought no how it could be powered.

Welcome to GTTAlk. Do you mean you want to convert the front mounted blower from a rear mounted one? I would start by looking at any tillers that JD made for the back and seeing if you could use something similar to drive the blower.

thanks for fixing the pictures. I am taking a front mount snow blower from an Areins tractor and putting it on the back of my 318. I have thought about tillers, and a rear pto but wanted to see if anyone else had ideas.

I think if you had a plate that used the draw bar and holes for the 3 point arms you could use a setup like we used. If you found one similar to what I used it would be easy. All we had to do to mount it was make the plate for the draw bar and hock up the lift arms that were used for the deck.
looking around the shop and a junk yard i might do a hydraulic powered blower.

Yeah..maybe....Have to figure out things like the direction the blower pulleys etc turn in relation to my PTO etc.......

Deere 318s uses a pto type shaft to rear with pulley system to run their tiller basically like your blower sits I believe the shaft connects the transaxle somehow you should have live power, don't know but probally will spin the wrong direction, You would have to use a reverse jack shaft setup or twisted belt design of some kind. Do some research you might be able to build something similar.

I was doing other farm work today looked at the drive for a wheel move pipe line. I might do something similar to that so i could have extra hydraulics and have it reversible.

well its been a while since I worked on this but i found a power steering pump out of an old dodge we have and i made a mounting bracket to run of of the front electric clutch will post photos tomorrow also found a hydraulic motor I am going to run the blower with now all I need is to put the motor on, make hoses, find a valve, and get some new belts and she will be ready for snow.

This sounds interesting, let us know how it works when you get to use it. Kinda thinking about trying something like it myself. Will PS pump have enough flow to turn a motor?

I don't know if they will have enough power to or not, but i suspect so because people use them to power hydraulic rams.


Yesturday i was able to get a motor and belts for the pump, and found out that the pump doesn't work :wallbanging: so today im helping put in a clutch on a dodge pickup and in return I am getting the hydraulic system that was on an old front end loader, so i will have enough power to run the blower and a few other things

That will definately be a big enough pump. Sounds like a fun project.
