Can anyone tell me if a 2305 would handle a Puma 64" 2 stage blower? It weighs 382lbs. Would I be stretching it's limits or would I be better off with a 2520 or 2320 to handle this type of applciation?

Thanks

My guess would be that it is too much blower for that tractor.

If you really need that big of a blower you probably want a front mount. Going backwards really is not fun for long distances, also tractors seem to have less traction going in reverse up grades, perhaps Murf can suggest how that effect can be countered with weight.

But on a sub compact like the 2305 I think you are making a misstake. ....

Mike,

I've got just a single stage blower on my 2210 and it handles a great deal of snow! I see that you are in New York with a 900 ft driveway. With the snow you get and the distance the 2 stage is probably a better fit for you. But I agree, that driving in reverse for such a long driveway (back and forth)is going to send you to the chiropractor! ....

Mike,

BTW, I forgot to mention that I do 10,500 sf of driveway with my 2210/46 single stage combo, and it takes around 30 minutes to do it all. While you may get more snow in your neck of the woods, I have yet to find a situation this set up wasn't good at.

It depends on your snow conditions.
I have a 50" Buhler/Allied 2 stage that weighs 402lbs on my 3pt and find I can lug the 2210 down if going into a plow snowbank.
I live in town, and find the 50" width about right for sidwalks.
64" is quite a bit bigger, and I think you may be stretching the limit, but with the hydro tranny, you can probably just ease you ground speed if needed. ....
