Got pretty sick of snowblowing on the h14 last winter without a cab or chute control. But I was very impressed with how the single stage worked.
So I traded an old sears ss16 with 4 attachments and a smoking Onan for a 90's ramsomes 250 fairway mower. I had a crazy idea to run a snowblower hydraulically in place of the reel mowers .

Long story short its ready to go and I bought a heated factory cab that needs to
Be installed .
The original plan was to use a 6ft pto blower which turned out to be wayyyyyyy to heavy and would have needed a hydraulic pto that put 540 rpm.

So A friend had two bolens blowers that were pretty much just rotting away and would
Have eventually been sold or scrapped. So I think I've given these two blowers a new lease on
Life.
The right angle gear boxes were removed and hydrualic motors now
Sit in place.

That is a neat setup. How wide of a cut will that give you?

72" cut I think? Can't remeber or 76"
I'll check, it's a 28hp kubota d1105 that had the long block replaced just before the golf course retired it.
I think the safety interlocks were acting up.
Hydrostatic foot petal control and selectable 4wd,
Everything is hydraulic on this machine.
Can't wait for Snow.

Nice set up for blowing snow. I also like to keep warm, can't take the cold anymore.I'am hoping the snow stays away for awhile yet.

That is very inventive. I can't wait to see it blowing the snow.

I'm just about to put my blower on my GT, and have been kicking around ideas

to get rid of the hand crank chute control. I'd like to see what you do with the window motors, too.

Thanks for posting this neat project.

Why don't you buy a cheap winch from Canadian Tire and use the winch to turn your chute. Its easy enough to do. I also  use a window motor to activate my deflector on my blower. I did use a window motor for the chute control on one of the blowers.It was easy to do because it had a spiral crank so I used the window motor to turn the crank. I'll post a couple pics so you can see how easy its to do.
