Modification to run mower deck with early snow blower bracket in place.

For the last three years, the poor thing has been left to snow duty only. 😢
However, the early style snowblower frame bracket does not allow you you to attach the mower deck. My original plan was to build a bracket that would mount the mower deck to the blower bracket. I had a trashed deck mount, so I planned to use that one for parts. First I cut the arms off off the bracket. The plate that goes side to side hits the blower bracket, but I found that the mount bracket part of the mower deck cleared. While looking at the two parts, I realized this was as simple as cutting the welds to that side to side bracket and remounting it further back.
I know you all like photos, so here we go! It works like a charm! All that is needed is to remove the plate on the bumper for the blower, and mount the mower deck!
I am also debating beefing up the blower bracket to work with a plow blade. That and this thought in the back of my mind of how I could modify a spare blower housing to hold a street sweeper brush.... 😊

Sure beats the on-off-on-off cycle
How far down did you move yours?
Thanks! I plan on copying that.

I lucked out too, my local Tractor Supply had the Massey Red in spray cans! Normally they only have it in quarts.
