I went to look at a "48 inch" Ford snow blower thinking it may fit on "next" my LGT195. As it turns out the blower was only a 42"; too small, front tire width on the Ford is 48 inches. Get to talking to the gentleman and he has a 48" but no idea as to what it fits. Before looking at it he shoots me a price I can't refuse. Long story short, it's in the back of the truck and I'm on the way home; wondering if 19.5 hp is enough.

Google search turned up nothing,

Is this made by Haban? Any ideas on what it originally designed to fit?

The shaft for the pulley is in rough shape; Shouldn't be to hard to configure a new stub shaft. Any ideas? What size pulley to install? Should this be over-ran, under-ran, or pulley same size as driver?

 

Plan to do a mock up tomorrow after final season mow and deck removal.

Anyone ever adapt a snow blower to another machine?

Any advice is appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Brian

Except for the frame that mounts to the tractor and clutch box drive assembly it looks exactly like my 42 inch 1979 Sears snow thrower (model 842260052). It was made by Haban. I use it on a Sears SS-16 (16 hp Onan engine) and it throws heavy, wet snow 25 to 30 feet. You might want to download a Sears manual for reference (operation, maintenance and part numbers). If the manual is not on GTTalk, go to stripmine.org/sears.

Good luck,

JiminRI

Maybe Cub? Or something along those lines do you have better pics of the mounting setup?

They made attachments for many tractor makers with adapter brackets particular to the tractor that you were putting them on.

Kinda looks like the real late Power Kings type mounting, about same as their Quick-tach system I have on mine. Swivel rear mount up to the blocks on frame, the drive up front with pulley needed to go up to front pto. It would stay on tractor. Just a wild guess, not even sure who made those for PK then anyway.

After watching a few YouTube videos last night I would tend to agree. Could you get a few pictures of the Quick-tach system? My main concern is the attachment to the tractor. This mule drive (with modification) should work on the Ford. My main questions deal with the best way (and easiest) to hook the blower to the tractor and how to lift it.

Powerking's all have those mount blocks hanging down off frame for front attachments. Usually rear ones open on front to slide in the bar from rear of attachment, the front ones open on bottom for the front bar to lift up and into it, then held in place there by small flat stock piece that bolts or pins to same mount.  Lift is off the rockshaft in middle of tractor connected with long bar underneath. I have parts pictures of the Quick-tach on a thumb drive. I was going to print out and scan to send out. NOW, printer is out of ink, sheesh!  If not in hurry, will be getting ink soon and be able to do that.  I Don't see a blower like that one in mateirial as of yet anyway, there is a lot on this drive to explore and sometimes hard to figure out where to look. Later with more time, get back with ya.

I found a manual for the snowblower on a CD I purchased some time ago. Instead of trying to send the PDF file I took some screen shot to show what is in the manual on mounting to a LGT 195. Maybe these will help with what you are trying to make.

Thanks glgrumpy and Charlie.

 

The mount looks similar to the PK that glgrumpy posted.

 

IMG_1384.JPG

 

The Ford mount that Charlie pictured is similar to the snow plow mount. It seems very complicated and I am unsure if the blower needs to be connected to the rear axle. I can't imagine that much pressure (force) being diverted toward the back, as a snow plow would. Any thoughts?

 

After a busy day, I finally did a mock up last night.

I'm thinking that a front mount could be used as the pivot point. Would this be strong enough?

And the rear could be attached to the deck lift; similar to the way the deck is lifted. Down would raise the blower through the front pivot.

Now the mule drive will be fun; almost no room in there. Exhaust will need to be changed. The attachment will be incorporated into the front mount. Still pondering the best approach to this. Hopefully get to another mock up today in the shed.

Any suggestions? Is my thinking way off?

 

Again, thanks to all.

 

Brian

Where did you get this CD? Needs to be added to the reference library.
