I recently aquared an LGT 165 (closed side) with a 42" two stage snow blower.
I have a LGT 125 (open side).
Has any one used one on a LGT 125?
I'm on flat land and have chains, wheel weights and a weight box.
The 125 may be running while I debug the 165.
Really just wondering if the twelve horse will be enough!

Thanks,
Joe

Is the blower listed as an option for the 125? I have a 125 and will be interested to learn what you come up with.

According to the manual, yes. The two stage is compatible with the 100, 120, 125, on up.

Go for it! The 12hp may just be a bit slower. You'll appreciate the 16hp more later. Good Luck

The only downside I can see is the manual lift....Those are one heavy son of a gun

Be careful hooking it up. It may not fit the open sided rig because of the spring perches. They may hit the grill before you can lock them in place. They had made 2 different styles for them. An old version for the open side rigs and a newer version for the closed units. The old ones fit everything, and the newer ones only fit the closed side rigs. You may be able to get away with it by bending the spring perches? Or it will fit because it was an older left over blower :)

Thanks poncho!
This one has the hydro lift. With spring assist.
I expect the weight box and wheel weights will be needed to offset the weight of the blower.
More than for traction.

That's great info Keith! Thanks a lot!
I'd hate to mess up my grill, it's in fine shape.
I hope to set this up Saturday. More snow coming this weekend!
