Mine doesnt lift much higher than that I think. What are you using to lift it? On mine, I leave the mower deck frame on the tractor and the arm slides above it. When the frame lifts, the blower lifts...I think thats the way the factory did it.

Hey what size and length bolts do you use to secure it to the frame ?

They are like a shoulder bolt. The head on one side is 3/4 and a 3/8 thread (9/16 head) on the other....will take a pic of one in the morning if I can find a loose one

I have a thread way back where I made some of those bolts using bushings from McMaster-Carr.

The washer with the larger hole will slide over the shoulder part, the other will not

I've been using an A35. Thanks for all the picture, you'll be happy with that machine when you are done. It beat pushing a walk behind hands down. You may even do your neighbors driveways to get more seat time!

Thanks for the belt size ! i went and picked one up today and it works amazing ! i am having a problem with the belt hopping off at full throttle though but i think it might be because the drive pulley is a little bent, or the PTO and the drive pulley aren't aligned exactly right. which i should be able to correct pretty easily.

Glad it's working out for you, I don't want to say this but I hope we get lots of snow so you can really make it work.  As for the blower looking dangerous.. the previous owner of my blower actually lost three fingers unplugging the chute on the blower that I now have.  The blower wasn't even turned on just the weight of it roller back was enough to take his fingers off.  So unplug it with a stick.  Thank you for the video.  Do you have the side panels for the tractor?

Good stuff and nice tractor!  I really like my two.  George Bradish tractors sells decals that are really good quality if you ever want to finish of the look of that beast.  They are well priced, the shipping to Canada kills me.
