Nice package, especially since it came with the snow thrower which are getting hard to find for those model Panzers. GOOD ONE!

When I saw that snow blower attachment, That cinched it, I got right on the horn and started working the deal. I figured if I didn't snag it. I might not find another. I've only ever seen three come up on the block. Now! if I could only snap my fingers and make it look like yours!IMG_1185.JPG IMG_1184.JPG

    Those snow throwers work quite well. I've got a pretty long driveway and it does a good job, even in deep heavy snow. The problem with them is when it comes to mounting and unmounting. Not the easiest thing to do and for that reason, the one you've got pictured here stays on the tractor all year long. I have another tractor like it (unrestored) that I use for yard work and moving the trailers around so it doesn't hurt to leave it mounted. If you're actually going to use it for removing snow, I'd replace the auger bearings. Fairly easy to do and not all that expensive.

Yeah - you can see that in the photo of my snow thrower that Karel posted and those springs can be a real bear to hook up if you don't have the T handle tool that came with the snow thrower (which I don't). I used a pair of ViseGrips to pull the springs onto the S hooks. It helps to have the thrower blocked up in the "UP" position.
