I purchased a Massey Ferguson 316GTX with 60" mower deck new in 1991.
The tractor has ran excellent for all these years but now I use it mainly to do yard work and keep the driveways clear during the winter.
I built a snow cab last year and have some more work to do like run some heat, rewire the lights but now my question.
I had a used Case single stage snow caster which has worked well but this past winter the bearings finally gave out and need to rebuild the unit.
What I would like is a two stage unit and have seen on this site some amazing units rebuilt and put into use.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what kind of two stage unit would work with the mule drive and electric PTO or any suggestions.
I have seen berco units which look great but are a bit pricey and hard to find in my neck of the woods.
Since the winter weather is finally coming to an end now is the time to start looking and getting ready for next season.
Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated.
