I have a Massey Ferguson 620 Snowblower I bought at an estate sale for $8.00. It is in excellent condition. However, it did not come with the mounting brackets that bolt onto the front frame of the tractor. The only thing I have been able to dig up are the small pictures in the snowblower manual that show the brackets on the tractor, which are pretty bad pictures. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some good pictures and maybe some dimensions of the front mounting brackets so I can fabricate them myself. Thanks!!

Sounds like you stole it to me! Looks in great shape allthough someone modified it to cut a wider swath by the looks of it. Can you get a pic from the tractor side so we know which style mount it takes?

i believe there are two types, because of the year of tractor. 1970 and older are different than 1971 and newer.

The 1st bracket, earliest, mounts to the front bumper, drive belt goes from crank forward to snow thrower pulley.
Snow thrower sticks out the front a lot.
The 2nd bracket, later, mounts under the frame in front of the axle, belt goes from the crank forward to the snow thrower pulley.
Snow thrower is mounted closer to the front of the tractor in this setup.
The 3rd bracket is much smaller and the snow thrower frame mounts under the tractor.
Belt runs off the mower decks PTO pulley to power the snow thrower.
Much different design than the other 2 and I don't have any good pictures of it.
But here's a picture of the 2 different brackets, 2nd and 3rd.

I will give you $16.00 dollars for it and worry about the brackets myself. That will save you the headache of fabricating them and you will have doubled your money.

Ok, so memory served me incorrectly. It is a 720, not a 620. Here are some more detailed pictures I took of it last night when I went to the farm. Hopefully these help in determining which type of bracket it takes.

I see the 8 in the pic, just making sure what the plan is.

Yes, I'm planning on putting it on my 8.

If anything looks useful, let me know what and what measurements.

From what I can see in propane1's photos, along with the serial # on my blower, I need the oldest style brackets. And to answer Gabriel's question- I have a restored 1971 MF7 electric start, an older restoration 1975 MF8 electric start, an un-restored 1967 MF12 hydrostatic, and a restoration in progress 1971 MF Ski Whiz 300S snowmobile. I'm a collector of all kinds of older stuff, I have motorcycles, mopeds, old chainsaws, my MF tractors, a John Deere 318 garden tractor with attachments, a restored 1954 Massey Harris Pony, 1978 JD 440 trailfire snowmobile, 1937 Maytag motor, 1978 Panther-X racing kart, etc. etc. etc. If its older and has an engine, it has my attention. Thanks for the help everyone!!
