We had gotten a 1200 Super Chief from our neighbors wife after hae had passed away. It is in great shape. We have had it for three years and it came with mower deck, dozer blade and single stage snow thrower. It runs and works verywell. For being 42 yrs old it runs great. The last two snowfalls have been very wet and heavy. I was very impressed tha it, if fed slowly, will handle the snow very well. Had to blow snow two times in the last week and at about 4-6" each time. I have a twostage Ford snowblower that I would like to adapt to it but it would take a lot og work to do so. The Jacobson uses a belt and the Ford uses a shaft to run it. I am sure that the two stage would clear it better.

Shaft driven ford two stage? My ford two stage has a shaft. But, that staff is driven by a belt. You may want to take another look at it?

I got the blower from my friends brother. He said he had the rest of it in the garge including the shaft. He passed away before we could get together to get the rest of teh blower and parts. I know it is different from the Jacobsen blower where it runs the blower itself. I was going to try to mount the blower on my Home lite but it again would take a lrge amount of fabrication. The blower will be going with a bunch of other junk this spring to the scrap yard. I've tried selling it but the cost of shipping is out of the guys reacha s well as paying for the blower.

THe blower you have is likely an LGT type blower....Your Jake is older, with a different drive setup.
