 Three point thrower that throws the farthest

Being that we are in the middle of a heat wave I thought that it would be a good time to ask a question about snow throwers. This winter I will be doing snow removal with a Kubota L4310. (36 PTO HP) The tractor is 62.4 inches wide. My question is what would be the best choice of three point hitch mount snow thrower for this tractor? I am particularly concerned about how far it will throw the snow. The job that I do, I previously handled with a John Deere 420 garden tractor and the 48 inch two stage thrower. I end up throwing a large amount of the snow twice because it can't toss it far enough on the first few passes. Just another 10 or 15 feet would make the difference. Do all of the three point throwers run the impeller directly off the 540 pto or are any of them over driven through gearing?Bruce LahmayerBlack River Falls, WI

I use a 5'6" John Deere 3pt blower on an Oliver 550 wich is 40hp. This blower will blow snow much farther than the single stage Cub Cadet garden tractor that I was used too. The only problem you might encounter is if you get a blower with a relatively small diameter discharge chute. My Dad has an Allied 5' 3pt that sometimes plugs when the snow is very wet. I've never had that happen as my blower chute is rectangular and about 8inches across. Your tractor will make the difference in how far the snow goes depending on the speed your reverse gears are. I have a 2mph low reverse and 4mph high reverse. I mostly use the high reverse unless the snow is more than 6 to 8 inches that seems to be the limit for the high. You start to pile up snow before it can be blown out if you back up too fast. I also know that if you have a full auger full at a considerable depth (12 or more inches) the blower has much more throwing distance. My fan has 3blades and I've seen the 4 bladed ones throw farther than mine. Once you get the hang of listening to the engine and watching the chute you'll be able to maximize the throwing distance. Have fun. Ivan from the tip of Lake Superior

I have a 7' Luck Now snow blower on a 65hp David Brown. It has a 32" four blade fan. It will throw snow up to fifty feet. I would like to sell this blower if anyone is interested. It is in good shape and only used 3-4 times.
