So i picked up a berco 48" snowblower last weekend and plan on putting it on the HT20 with the 2 cylinder kubota diesel.
Replacing this single stage with
Using the mounting frame off of a blower that the auger is in bad shape on
I stripped the belt drive system off the berco. The input of the blower is opposite of the pto on the bolens. The bolens also spins at 2000rpm which would give a tip speed on the second stage of the blower of 7588ft/min. about double what it should be even if it had the power to turn it. To solve this issue i found a reducing gearbox made by Hub City. The Model 22 with a 2 to 1 ratio and with it being a gear driving another gear it will reverse the rotation as well.
