My G16xl developed an oil leak while I was using it. I had picked up a DGT 1700 last winter that needed some work on it, and the intention was to make it my primary snow moving tractor. However, when I scrambled to get the rest of the needed details together and pressed it into service, the results were paltry at best. I was using it to try to blow 11" of wet snow, and it acted more like a plow, pushing the snow ahead of me, rather then like a blower and blowing it away, and when it did blow the snow, didn't blow it very far. I have the correct blower according to the manual, and it bolted right up. It was on a 5020.
Is this the results I should be expecting from this blower on wet snow? Or what can I do to improve the performance?
I have a single stage blower from a Q series tractor. Are the RPM's on the PTO the same as on the DGT?
I really like the tractor. The engine starts up easily even when cold. The tractor drives more like a go kart rather then like a tractor. I was watching for a Kubota G5200 before this one came up, and in my opinion, there is no comparison. The manual for the engine states I should get 6000 hours on the engine before an over haul. If that is true, I doubt I will ever get enough hours on this to ever need the overhaul.
