Rear mounted blower
Posted January 10, 2011 - 10:51 AM
I know I am going to have to fab this, so was wondering if anyone knew of what type of blower I might use?....I am looking in the ads, This ad says its a Ford LGT blower, but I cant see how it can be driven by an LGT, not the way the engine and pulleys are set up...Any comments on this?

Have a few chalenges with this.......Building a frame to mount it on the rear of my LGT......reversing the PTO, so it goes the right way......building a lift mechanism......
Ideas gladly accepted

That blower was driven from a gearbox to a driveshaft ,then to the chains and spokets,.
Put a jackshaft under the tractor, like the mower deck is mounted, and the run a belt back to the right angle drive that originally drove the blower, then it should all be turning the correct direction.

OK...I see, much like the rear PTO that I have on my tractors now, with the long shaft, just under the tractor instead of down the side?
Thing is, if I do it that way, I will need another 90 degree box..The drive for the blower goes in sideways...I already have a PTO shaft down the side of the tractor which should do the same thing, just a matter of reversing the rotation
You are right about the weight....it weighs a ton and I dont have hydraulic lift......I could add it to the LGT125 if I could find the parts.

That gearbox is mounted to the hitch plate with a few spacer plates to get the hieght correct.

Just a question. Since you're going to be adding a hydraulic lift, would it make sense to do a hydraulic drive for the blower. Wouldn't have to worry about CCW/CW that way and you'd be working with no gearbox, right angle, belts, etc.
I know there are some guys here would throw in their 2 cents design wise.
