Wow, Dan. Those pictures are above and beyond. ( Please tell me you didn't pull that off just to take those pictures)

Dimensionally in that picture, it looks like the overall length of the angle iron is about 9"... Is that close?



The blower was already removed. That tractor is also one of my summer workers. That's great that you were able to find some parts, aren't you glad you didn't just say what's this and throw them in the scrap pile.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here you go....DSC02513.JPG DSC02516.JPG DSC02517.JPG DSC02518.JPG

Got the pedal Ext pcs cut out tonight. Only had a little time to work, but we're one step closer.

We got it done! Yes!!!
I couldn't wait for snow, so we got creative and used what we had.





Well, I eventually got all the grass OFF of me, plus my Grandmother AND my Father told me to imagine what it would be like with freezing snow, instead of grass. . . However, last year my so called "Nice" Dad blew me into the world of the Eskimos with his Sears snow-blower and a sudden blast o' wind, so whenever we walked in the front door Mom told us go RIGHT back out. Nevertheless, I don't have to "Imagine" I just have to REMEMBER!

That's one way to spread out the grass clippings. Looks like all of you had a good time doing this! Thanks for sharing!

Geez I never knew that you could use a snow blower to cut grass, :thumbs:
I've been doing it wrong all these yrs. :wallbanging:
do you think that would be any good on leaves in the fall?

Thanks for the Support Dan, and others!! I haven't had a face full of grass like that since the time I rolled down a "Freshly'' mowed hill...*attempts to spit grass out* gosh, i even believe it's in my lung! :lol:
And, it works like a charm too!!

Thanks for all the help, support, and measurements. Man, we would've been in deep "Doo-Doo" with out you people!!

Here's some pics of the pedal piece and some more of the lift link. Let me know if you need any more.



Just a late heads up... that lift rod is on backwards. The hollow tube attaches to the snow blower bracket side, the "U" shaped end attaches to the tractor lift. I was looking at the manual just last night and found that the lift rod attaches to the bracket on the lift arm itself, and not the jack shaft that lifts the mower deck. I found some 3/8 clevis pins (see below) that fit on the front bracket for the straps, and for the lift arm. I used ones lke on the top left.

Now you need to get a trailer to pace beside the grass flinger and then you have a nice clean yard.

Nice grab, Ryan. I need to get a blower for my 180, and a plow for my 140 H3. I defiantly look forward to seeing you guys at PAPD, and maybe this year I'll even keep up!

Congratulations on your blower. It looks to be in really nice shape.

You seem to be having fun in those videos. I can only imagine your delight when the snow hits your area. The driveway will be clean as a whistle all the time.
