I have a 6 foot wide Sears and Roebuck hydraulic snow blower. It was set up previously on a Ditch Witch but could easily be adapted to mount on a tractor or skid steer. Everything is free and turns easily. It does need the two hydraulic hoses replaced and I will include new hose. You would just need to have fittings added to fit your machine. Please put the words "Sears Blower" in your email subject line or I won't even open it.

I wonder if my 446 would run it. Only an hour away. Hmmmmm....

 I like the way the builder thinks. Take what's a available and make something useful out of it.

It's going to take around 12hp to get good performance out of a 36" snow blower. Your also going to loose efficiency driving it with hydraulics. I don't think your 446 is up to the job unless all you get is powdered snow. 24hp. is the minimum I would put on it. 

It would have been fun to see it work with both of those chutes discharging snow.

Keep in mind a Case GT puts out oil faster and at a higher psi than most SCUTs. I wonder if a Case or Ingy could handle it............Eric, consider this a science experiment...... :rolling:

I have read that the Case/Ingersoll units put out approx. 14 h.p. via the hydraulics.

 

Check this one out:

I've always like science experiments (18100 fpm deck blade speed on a 48" Case deck). I would think that 11 GPM at 2000+ psi would do it. May not leave much for moving though. I also would wonder about lifting it. I bet that thing weighs a bunch. Considering the Case/Ingy had a hydraulic 48" makes me wonder if it could do it. Of course that big Case blower was also powered by a 20 hp Onan hydro setup with a higher capacity pump. I may have to see if can tempt them with some kinda trade. I'm a little broke after my JD 300 purchase. I would do each chute in opposite directions just for pure shock factor and muscle flexing lol.
