Today I got the Bolens 18148 two stage snowblower mounted to my Bolens/Iseki G152. It was an easy retrofit. The mounting ears on the tractor had to get squeezed in 1/2". The pin for bottom of the lift cylinder has a spot built into the frame of the blower already.

The hydraulic connections on my Iseki are not compatible with the blower. Not to mention 3 out of 4 of my hoses have no rubber coating left on them, so they kink easy. Ordered all new hoses and the necessary connections, I hope.

The blower spun up fine, but the lift cylinder needs some help. I do not have the helper springs yet. Working on a counterweight box now.

Tomorrow, figure out why the glow plugs went on siesta.

Was given these two 2010 LandLords. Stripped them down. Today I started to put one good tractor together.

New rear tires for the b10. Nanco Super Lugs. They're quite nice.

I welded a trailer tongue to the back of the tank I use for a ballast so I can pull a trailer while I have the ballast on.

10 minutes and a piece of scrap metal, makes life much easier. Mission accomplished.

Per post #2551 above, I got the heaviest springs I could find at the hardware store, and some turnbuckles. She now lifts up about 4" or so. The glow plug issue was a wire out of a spade connector.

New hoses from Surplus Center, the quick connects to the chute swivel were purchased from Grainger.

Weight box is about 400 pounds. With the blower and weight box, this is probably pushing a ton. 7&1/2 hp per thousand pounds. I am not going to do well at the drag strip.

This combo is working great, it's scaring all the snow away. So, if it isn't getting used I might as well wash and wax it. The most important tool for waxing a two stage blower is lots of patience.

Next up is an electric actuator for the chute tip control.

After moving some snow to make a skating rink I was backing the Ford into the garage when the blower suddenly dropped and would not move up any more.  After cycling the actuator a few time the culprit just fell right off.  Ends up that the pivot shaft that the hydraulic cylinder is connected to had one of the arms break of.  It was a pain to get out... seized... the cylinder pin needed to be cut off the frame it was... seized.  The 3/4" mounting pin would not budge with my 20 ton press.  I drilled it out 1/2" and knocked it out with an air hammer.  Welded a new pin on the tractor frame and welded the rocker shaft back together.  It still needs to be all put back together.

I was a bit worried about the blower not lifting all the way up. I think there would of been issues when it filled up with snow. I picked up 2 more springs and installed them. They are more of angle, but now the blower lifts all the way up with the tractor at an idle.

I felt like I was working on Apollo 13 with the power (Amp) management trying to erk every amp from the Roper for the Trailer Parade Float.

I've had nothing to report for a long time but it sounds like we may get a mini-blizzard tomorrow. I figured it was time to get the MF12G ready to push some snow.

 

I pulled off the mower deck, reversed the rear wheels, installed the blade and chains. Greased the zirks and aired up the tires. Now I hope it won't be needed---LOL!

 

I also wanted to check and see if pics are still loading ok on the site so that's why I posted so many.
