Looking at getting a slightly used 48" Berco ATV snow blower that my neighbor has. He had some serious health issues and decided to sell his ATV a couple years ago but the person that bought the ATV didn't want the Blower so he offered it to me cheap enough that I can not pass it up.
Does anyone have any experience with an ATV snow blower? Reliability and performance? Availability of parts?
This one is 48" wide dual stage with a 15hp Kohler engine with electric and pull start.
I'm 100% certain I can mount it to a garden tractor. They hookup to a bracket that bolts through the skid plate on a 4 wheeler and the winch picks the front of the blower up.
I have a full sized rear hitch plate off of a Cub 1440 on my Cub 582 that a winch will bolt up to. And I could mount the blower on the rear like a PTO driven blower on a large tractor. With it mounted to the rear hitch plate of the tractor I will not have to sacrifice the mowing and plowing capabilities of the tractor.
This blower was used for 4 winters and has sat unused for the past 3 years so it is 7 years old. I doubt it has more than 50 hours of run time on it. But the carburetor and gas tank are going to be a mess to deal with. It has some really nasty smelling gas in it that about burns the hair out of your nose.
