well its june and i a bought a berco 40" blower for $100 there worth $800 + and this one has almost no use its a close fit for the tube frame i even have a right angle gear box thats new the mounts are 1/4 off on each side so a bracket like on the large frames will be needed to make it work should be a good build it will also get hydraulic movements up- down chute left-right up-down

Looks like a great project. What is the weight of the Berco? Will you have to beef up the front end on the Tube Frame to support the blower?

Those are pretty sturdy blowers. A cut above the average. That's a smokin deal for 100$

Nice looking blower!!!

I think I see two different tractors in the attachments--one has a vertical stack and one has the muffler along the side.

This will make a great build. It looks very similar to my Haban single stage on the Sears SS12, weight wise. It is a lot of blower for the tractor, but not too much. I did have to add more weight to make reverse work right again. Kept spinning when lifting and backing up.

yep the pictures were taken on different days the first with the hood open is my 1256 and the second is my h14 thats been re-powered (the blower will on the h14) the hood is modified so its 1" forward at the bottom and 1 1/2 at the top

Back to the grind !! after 2 weeks of getting back into the route-teen for school just about ready to pull my hair out :( ugh its getting better now as that i am in a shop and tones of stuff to do so to re-leave some stress i decided to start work on my 2 stage blower for the h14 i made a mount to put a mower gear box on the mount is made out of scrap that i had around (money only goes so far) the main part is 3x6x3/8 angle iron and some 3/8 plate and 1/2 for the up rights the mount will be taped and bolted on ( will need to remove to change fluid ) i ordered bearings and seals for the gear box and i welded the hole after i beat it in with a hammer (num nuts put a long roll pin in that could not be punched out) i cut ground and welded all the mounts the welds are not the greatest but i am getting my welding hands back also my machine is a miller 70 amp mig not meant for 3/8 =) worked good any ways here is the pictures

I had one for my JD 165 WAY to much blower for the tractor i could not go any where with that thing was always getting stuck or spinning i even had 2 link chains still spun it also bogged the engine down it was a big mistake trading a running working sx75 for .... i miss that Lil mower
