Mike, same thing happend to someone on MTF recently, I think there is a thread on how they fixed it. Maybe it was the drive pulley, I don't remember. Easiest is to find a parts blower and steal parts from it...I said "easiest"
You maybe able to research other ones for other brands and make something fit...???

does peerless 2300 have a limited slip?

Best way to figure out how much weight you need with a Blower on is to Weigh the blower and then add the same Weight to the rear tires + 50%.Chains are a Must have when it comes to blowing.4 link chains are OK but a good set of 2 link chains with Ice cleats is the way to go.
If your blower weighs 100lbs add 150lbs+
As far as your broken blower.I would look around for another used one.You can use almost any blower as long as you have your blower for parts and a decent welder.

Can you show us the damage that we're talking about? Maybe a few pics would get the creative ideas flowing.
I will post pictures of the damage to the Craftsman snow blower as soon as I haul it out of the field. I was a little upset with it and left it there. Will try to do this over the weekend.

My Haban blower drive gear also stripped recently, I havent fixed it yet, but I am sure as hell not paying $250 to fix it.
I run #450 on the back of my plow tractor with 10.50 ags and have no need for limited slip. I rarely spin one tire.

I run 2 link chains with ice cleats on the rear of my 518 with the heavy 48" blade, while not as heavy as those blowers, I run NO wheel weights. Just my 200lb butt in the seat and I have no problems on ice or pack snow when I back up our steep drive with the blade up. That is where a hydro shines, you can ease into motion a bit smoother than with a belt clutch. When I had my SS16, I wished it was a hydro, that would have been the perfect SS16, with hydro and hyd lift. With that heavy blower, a bucket of concrete or other heavy weight on the 3pt might help counter act the nose mounted weight. I my love my hydro, but I still want an SS16 again! Mike
