:biting_nails: what size garden tractor does that fit on  :poke:

 

 

I don't want to even talk about snow!

 

 

Is the little tree a factory option?

The blower was originally made for a Bob cat. Years ago it was converted to fit the powerking I have.

Yeah this is going to be fun... idk if it's called a mule drive but it has an assembly that mounts under the tractor with a dual belt pulley that I'm sure matches the engine output shafts pulleys. That has a u joint and slip shafts that mates to the shafts and joint on the blower. There's also an electric motor that someone is wired to a switch on the dash thay turns the chutes.

It's the one thing my father never showed me how to install. Heck iv only used it once in my lifetime.

Actually it wasn't made for a Bobcat skid steer the brand name is Bob-Cat they were made in Wis and I think they made a few to fit the PK's had a number of walk behind models  go down the page some for a short story.

And stop this snowblower thing for a couple of months :wave: :bigrofl: :ok:

Just kidding

Your right. I found another forum where thay exact info was posted. And I was too lazy to edit haha. I was just going off what my father had said. I will say u can see where things were welded and where the impliments mounts have been cut woth touches to fit this thing. So probably this wasn't made FOR the pk

Hi a,graham52, you maybe right I was thinking about that this afternoon, and I haven't come across any pics of information about a tractor mounted units being made by Bob-Cat so it could be that some were fabbed up for use on a GT. There must have been a person that was about 70 miles west of me that collected or specialized in them as he had a number of the walk behinds for sale for a number of yrs.

My SIL had a Simplicity with that kind of blower set up and it really blew snow.

Hope you get mounted and working I'll looking to hear how its working for you, how wide is it?

It's 6ft wide and 9ft long. That's the size of my trailer and I had to jump on it to get the tail to slide down the trailer gate.

so i tried hooking it up today to move it. just a mock up but with frozen bolts i didnt really bother going too far. the blower attaches with two pins in the middle and then just rests under the 3 point hitch by gravity go figure. unfortunitly the pins that attach the blower require the mule pulleys to also be attached to the tractor. more work if you know that i mean.

Hi a.graham52, thanks for posting the pictures hope you get it all installed will be interesting to see how it works looks like it could be a serious snow mover.  So the push frame goes all the way back to the 3 pt arms and attaches to them? How does it lift, the clutch/drive assy is interesting but should work good.

nah man, if you look at the third picture in the last post. look at the yellow brackets. there are three holes (two currently have bolts going though). the bottom hole attached to the snow blower. thats the pivot point. then the tail just simply sits under the hitch and when the hydrolics press down, up goes the blower. im learning all this today. iv only see/used it on the tractor once and never saw how it all went together. no idea what im going to do about belts.

so i got it all installed enough to move it around. what doe you guys think i should do about belts? do you think dual adjustable belts would be the ticket? otherwise i need to figure out how to get belts over the engine output shaft.
