 3Pt Snowblower sources

This year I would like to try a rear mount 51"-60" blower.
I am having surprising trouble finding sources to compare and/or buy from. I am in the Boston area, would like to avoid a large shipping cost on top of a pricey item.
Thanks

If you have a small model you might check that your hitch can lift it and there's enough weight in the front. Assuming (from the size you're looking at) you don't have a cab, you'll be constantly adjusting the outflow direction, so make sure you can reach the control from the seat. You'll operate it easiest with a snow-filled front bucket and 4 tire chains.

There are many brands of rear-attach blowers; don't know why your search isn't working. A tractor dealer could tell you what brands are available in smaller sizes and made nearby.

Misc. advice: Make sure it's two-stage. At the start of the season polish some car wax where you can get a blockage: the passage from the flywheel to the outflow exit. Use low-temp lube on every grease fitting after every few hours work. Before each use spritz lubricant on the chain and check its tension (chain lube or just any oil). To store for the summer, raise it off the ground (the paint will be worn off the underside) and oil-spray where debris marred the paint.
