I have a line on a berco model 44 northeast. Of course, the mounts and drive won't work on my deere. Anyone here know what the max rated rpm for these blowers are?

Is the snowblower belt or shaft driven?

What I need to know is basically the rated impeller rpm. I haven't decided yet whether it's going to be shaft or belt driven

Typical target rpm for a snowblower impeller is 900-1,100.

I emailed Berco, on the off chance they would actually get back to me. They did! Yes, they say 1000 to 1100 fan shaft speed.

I have a 455 that I was gonna mount it on. Changed my mind, and decided to put it on my mf 1655. The massey has a pto right out the front, and building the mounting frame for it was easier. Plus, the deere is my main tractor, and feel that snowblowers in sub zero weather can be hard on stuff. Hydro's, plastic hoods and shields, etc. Picked up this massey a while back for dirt cheap, so if it gets beat up, I won't be out much.

i see why you want to know the rpm's of the blower. do you have spec's on how fast your pto will be on the 1655MF

44 berco looks to be good unit to use if your speeds are good.thumbsup.gif

Lol. Ya, 3650 rpm. I'm working at slowing the massey down, but of course, it's not a simple pulley swap. They used massey/snapper specific stuff, so I have to get creative. But, working on it, and have a plan in mind. Will post on the massey forum once I get it done.

one of my first video's i seen on a berco was this. i have talk to the guy that modified this unit onto a older JD 316 and i believe he sells kits too. but for me and you we would just build it are self.thumbsup.gif

 

after watching some more video's on berco snowblowers.  i notes all of them really blow the snow good. better then anything else i have ever seen.but for some reason this video throws it to the moon.

something had to be modified to get the rpm's up high enough to do that. different pulleys or get the motor to spin higher?

either way i really like watching this video.
