 Kubota rear snow blower prices

Guys,
I have a B2150HST (23 hp). I have a chance to buy a 5ft rear snow blower, which would have been great about 2 weeks ago. I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on what is a fair price for such a machine? I know it's about 15yrs old, but like new. 5 ft wide, 3 point hitch, and it's 2 stage.
I have a gravel drive. How do these work on gravel?
Also, given my tractor, anyone forsee any trouble?

What's the guy want for it? Generally, for something a few years old I figure 50-60% of new. After about 5 years, prices vary widely depending on many variables--season need being one. Like we say around here: never buy a boat in the spring.

The only issue on gravel what type of gravel: is it hard packed or loose?

If it's loose at all then you should lower the guide shoes enough to leave about 2" snow coverage for cars to pack down. Otherwise, you'll be sweeping gravel out of your grass come spring.

There are lots around and all fit (a rear blower doesn't have to be Kubota), and they can handle the odd stone. If you don't have a front loader or weights, this heavy attachment will make the rig tail-heavy.

Saserby,

If the blower is in good used condition, the sale price should be about half that of a new one.

You probably know this stuff, but I'll pass it along for those who don't..........

Any implement that's powered by the PTO shaft shouldn't be operated when the PTO shaft is angled at greater than 10 degrees.

Measure from the ground to the center of your tractor's PTO shaft. Then measure from the ground to the center of the blower's PTO shaft. These measurements don't have to be identical to each other in order to make the blower compatible with your tractor, but there shouldn't be more than a couple of inches difference between the two.

You should disengage the PTO when lifting the blower to full transport height. You should decrease the engine rpms anytime you lift the blower more than a few inches. Never operate the blower at full rpms when lifting it, as this can cause serious damage to the PTO shaft and/or the equipment.

If you have a high crown on your gravel driveway, try to avoid going right down the center of your drive while blowing, as this will result in the skid shoes spanning over the crown, allowing rocks to be dug up by the blower's cutting edge. Instead, make a pass down each side of the driveway.

It's not necessary to clear the snow right down to the ground. If the blower has adjustable skid shoes, it's always best to lower them, raising the blower to the highest setting. If you find that you could get away with slightly less clearance, you can then adjust the skid shoes for your conditions. It's always best to start with the highest setting the first time down the drive.

We received another 5 inches of snow last night. More snow in store for us early next week. This has been a record winter for us up to this point. There could be a real mess up here in North Dakota, come Spring.

Joel

It's worth what you're willing to pay for it. My guess is somewhere between $600 and $800. Providing everything previously posted is adhered to, 23 hp should handle 5' under "normal" circumstances. The more snow - the slower you go. (Not RPM's, speed.) If the snow is too deep you can always take partial cuts; say 3 or 4 feet instead of five.

Guys,
I really appreciate the feedback. It sounds like his $350 asking price is pretty reasonable. I'm going to look at it today. We get some snow here, but not as bad as up north. Right now, all the snow has melted agian. The blower is a bit of a luxury, since I'm getting by with the loader, but for the price, I may have to have it.

If it's in that good of shape $350 would be a steal. You can't even buy a walk-behind for that!

Saserby,

I agree with Lwayne! Go get that blower, before someone else gets their hands on it! And if you ever decide to sell it, you should easily be able to double your money.....but I wouldn't sell it.

As Lwayne pointed out, you might run into problems with heavy, deep snow. You're at the limit on horsepower for a blower that big. If you find that your tractor starts to bog down, you can either slow down your ground speed, or make narrower passes.....er, take smaller bites.

I forgot to mention you should always run your blower at full engine throttle....540 rpm. You'll want and need all the horsepower you can get from your tractor when operating the snowblower.

At any rate, that blower is a real bargain.

Joel

Well,I just went and looked at it. I think it was a model B2560? Paint is faded like you might expect for an early 90's model, but there wasn't a knick on the skid plates, cutting edge or blades. I don't think it's ever been used. The blades spin easily by hand from the shaft. The guy says he never used it because he bought out a dealers stock going out of business back then, but it was too small for his tractors. Anyway, I said I'd think about it, but I've thought enough. I'm calling him now.

Don't wait another minute. Go buy it. You could easily sell a rig like that for close to a 1000.00 if it is like the way you describe it. You can find less expensive blowers around new for around 1500.00 to 1800.00. A lot of them are over 2000.00. I wouldn't sell it anyway as mentioned above, the ease of using it will impress and spoil you compared to your current method.
