Looks like a nice old D17. I can see it has a 3 point hitch which means it is either a series 4 or an earlier model that has a conversion as the Snap Coupler was on the older ones. Those Vee blowers were interesting in the fact that harder snow was very tough to get a cut started through the drifts. Once you had a cut through you could take small slabs off the sides. The snow in the video is where this type of blower worked best. The earlier Vee blowers were set up to pull forward. (just picture that blower turned around behind the tractor) The tractor had to drive through the snow to move it. All part of the learning curve in snowblower manufacturing. Cool video, thanks for sharing. I have a lot of memories of orange paint.

Nice tractor and blower, it looks like it would work really well in deep snow.
