Is it me or does this just seem like it wouldn't work? Now don't get me wrong,I'm a big cubby fan and I believe anything can be accomplished with the right cuss words and a few tools yet I just can't see this lil cubby lifting this blower....

It looks like there is a weight box attached to the front bumper. The mower deck is also installed, so that would help, but it wouldn't be much fun if you got stuck in some snow. Even so, it looks like a loosing battle if you were backing down a steep hill. It should have some wheelie bars on the back.

The ROPS would keep it from going all the way over as it did for the lucky operator in this photo. Sorry for the poor photo quality.

The result of stopping on an up slope to shift into a lower range. Set it back down with a backhoe,checked the fluids and put it back to work with a different operator.

Yes ,amongst other things,a lot of weight would need to be added to the front.
I'm not even sure it would run one that big.

You don't want to put your neighbors through a snowblower......Well, at least I don't have any neighbors that would qualify!

Well, also there is the fact that it is for sale.There has to be a reason why he doesn't want it.

I thought it meant sucking up your own cat, OR the neighbors cat, NOT sucking up the neighbor! :poke:

Yea it looks kinda funny.
But, if someone from buffalo New York says that's how you move snow,
I'd probably defer to their judgement!
By the way (don't tell anyone you heard from me) but wood chippers
Work better than snow blowers for some jobs.

IF it will lift it I think it puts a heck of a strain on lots of things.
