My neighbor gave me this JD 59" two stage snowblower two days ago. I sanded and painted it to look better . It needs a gear box and flighting . Let me know if you have these rusting in your garage and you want to sell them. Otherwise this snowblower is going to be a rear box scraper by Sept. 1st. :confuse:

Todays project I built new frame mounts for the front blade and got it done and it works great.

The snowblower was a good save! Both of them!

That plow looks pretty scary on there, Don! How about some pictures of the mounts? I bet it took a bit of fab work!

I'll take a picture of the mounts , here is a picture of the blade on the stock jd 430. I think it looks much more suitable now with the larger tires.

Here is a picture of the new mounts. I lowered the frame so the plow hookup would be level again with the taller tires.

Today I mounted the broken snowblower on the rear three point hitch of the mini 4020 . The rear of it is empty so i can use it for extra weight and actually push snow in reverse like a box scraper. Didn't take me long to get use out of even a broken snowblower :dancingbanana:

I have to admire you Don for keeping your shop so clean. Now if it were just enough to inspire me to keep mine clean. Nope I don't think it's going to work. :(

My shop is so small if I don't keep it clean I can't move around, ha,ha. Todays project is to try to repair the rear seal leak in the Waldon 4100 mini loader.
