I just got the idea of adapting the Snow Hound attachment that came with my Toro Power Handle to work with one of my Simplicity riders. Dang, only thing is the snowblower  would not be wide enough to clear a path for the tires in the Simplicity.What do you think?

Think your nuts!   Leave it as is, use as is, or.............sell it if not what you wish to own. Must be lots of Simplicity blowers to buy that would fit.  Swapmeets this summer!

Would look for the Simplicity built snow thrower, they are not rare and can be had at a good price.

What kind of Simple tractor do you have ?

Ya man get one wide enough to cover your tracks,, better yet get the correct one for your model machine and save yourself the headaches.

I have a 728 that has a replacement engine that was made in 1995 and a 5010. They are very similar machines. I need a deck as the 5010 had no deck with it when I found it and the 728 deck has some rust . The 728 is , in my opinion, too "nice" to repaint . The 5010 might get a restoration this year. I like the vertical shaft models. Guess I'm weird that way.

Should be awful easy to find a blower to fit those.  Up here they run $50-100, depending on condition.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for a cheap one (I gave two away this winter), and maybe we can ship it down your way.  Fastenal would ship one for under $100, I bet.

Newrestorer , we may have crossed paths before. I live in Hudson , was in Mooresville last Sunday. My probable future son-in -law lives there and works at the Lowes operations center . I have gone to the local shows for years. Big Edd's used to be a favorite. I still go to the Foothills Antique Power show at Hickory every year. I'm interestd in the blower.

Had a look at CL in your area, not much there by ways of tractor mounted snow throwers.

Looks like you got it made now, best of luck.
