I'm just full of questions.

 

Does anyone know what models this snowblower attachment fits? Suppose there's any way to rig it up to my SS12?

Here's a link to the ad. There's another picture of the front which has "Sears" emblazoned on it.

Thanks!

That looks like an early blower to fit the first vertical shaft engines like mid to late 80's. I have one from the late 80's/early 90's with a similar design. It has a belt that normally runs the mower deck and goes to that upper large pulley on blower. Then another belt from the lower puller that twists in the blower frame and drives the drum. I know I've seen somewhere someone mounted that same style to a suburban, I think they modified a mule drive somehow to drive the upper blower pulley.

 

If you were anywhere close to Southeast Cincinnati, I know someone who is selling a suburban blower

Running it off of the mule drive somehow is just what I was thinking.  Good to know someone else has managed it.

 

Finding a Suburban blower would certainly make things simpler. This one is dirt cheap but I may hold out for the real thing.

 

I'd be willing to make the trek to Cincinnati for the right blower. I just don't have the carrying capacity.

It may not be pretty, but it certainly is effective. When it comes to snow, effective is all I really care about.

You're making me rethink passing up that red blower. And it IS mighty close...
