Some of them any way. Not in the picture is the noma walk behind snow blower, MF 14 with plow, lgt 145 ford with snow blower, 1951 ferguson tractor with rear blade and a 1968 snow flight walk behind snow blower. Believe me, I don't want any snow, last year was bad.

Noel.

Shorty, The lower arms are from a MF 7 deck, hooked into where the tiller hooks up. Piece of pipe on to the top lift arm to the a frame on thrower. A slot on the top pipe at the thrower end for float. Some helper springs. Realy need counter weight on right side because of the engine. Extra spring on motor side to help keep level. But when down it works good. It lifts like a 3 point hitch. Some pictures coming, Noel

Jabelman, Which ever one is not broke, is the one I use. No, the lgt 165 ford is the main one, the other ones are the toys, but still useful. If the ford breaks down, then it's onto the next one. Noel.

Do you like the rear thrower? I am in the process of building an adapter bracket for a 49 on my 140.

I like that setup. I have been kicking around the idea for a few years now. Just wasn't sure how to deliver the power. I was hoping to get the power from the pto versus another engine.

Nice herd. Have you tried the headlight cleaning stuff on the plastic windows of the cab? I was thinking about trying it but can't get at the cabs yet. Good Luck to us all this winter. Rick

Shorty, I wanted to do the same, use the tractor engine, but could not figure out a way to do it and in order for the thrower to work, you would have to have full engine speed, which would make the tractor to fast in reverse to be comfortable. Tractor is geared not hydro. So, I went the engine route. Just idle the tractor in reverse and it's easy to use. I ran fuel line from the tractors gas tank to operate the motor. Ran electric for the starter. Have a extra key switch on the dash. Noel

The engine is 8 hp, really could use a 10 hp.

Michael.kitko, I like it. It's fun. But harder on the back and neck. Nice to be able to use the loader, then the thrower with out changing tractors. Noel.

Noel, that team looks very capable indeed.

 

Nice job on the rear mounted snow blower as well.
