This seems pretty cool idea to me, take an old two stage snowblower and make mounting attachments for the tractor, though it is more than I would want to spend to replace my snowcaster. I do wonder how you turn the shoot.

For sale.

Custom built 2 stage Bolens snowblower.

Was built from a 1032 Ariens and made to fit on the Bolens tube frame tractors. Works very well. Shoots snow 30 feet.

Uses the standard Bolens pto drive.
No alterations are needed to use this, put the pins in, hook up the lever and blow snow.

I would want to see it in action before purchasing it for two reasons.  Looking at the one picture it appears the PTO shaft from the PTO to the snowblower is on a bit of an angle - this could result in problems by putting extra side pressure on the front PTO bearing.  The other reason would be that if the fan is being driven at PTO speed the fan will be running too fast which will take a lot of power in heavy snow conditions.  I have a homemade two stage for my one 1050 and have found that a 12" fan should turn about 1/2 the PTO speed in order to have the proper impeller speed on a Tube Frame tractor.
