 Has anyone hooked up a snow thrower to their Cub 3204 feedback

Hello all,
Has anyone hooked up a snow thrower to their Cub 3204 ( or similiar model)feedback? how well does it work ? Were wheel weights and chains used? the hydrolic lift arm easy to remove? I beleive the 45" thrower is the same for a lot of models in the 3000 series...I just need to know how well it works overall, and is it a good setup...

Thanks in advance!!

Go for it. Get the additional ballast as they are not light. If you don't have one yet they have had this model out a few years and there are some used ones from time to time.

Thanks Art,

This is exactly the feedback I needed to hear, since I never seen how the hydrolic's are hooked up. Got any pictures?

A few reasons why I'm strongly thinking of going with the 3000 series 45" thrower over the other options. I have a Cub 125 w/ a single stage but I'm out of room and I'm sending it up north to a relatives house (temporarily). The attachment on a JD 4100 is real expensive, so it comes down to the 3000 series cub which is less than half the JD option.

Once you use a blower/thrower it impossible to change back... on the overall scope of things, its really not a big problem, and I'm thinking about it now so I have plenty of time to think it through

I'm not great with the features of the computers as far as getting you pictures but I think you need the owners manual for what you need. The 3000 series would probably double the distance of your 125. I would also say we put a lot of chains on them as well a s the weights. If you are keeping the Drive really clean you might want to try it with out chains but 99% are with them.

front hydrolic attachment...

Sounds like these are front blowers and that's what you want.

For my own situation I prefer a 3ph blower. They are a lot less expensive, but the real reason is that I couldn't get the work done I need to unless both a blower and loader are available. I might rethink my attitude if I had really long drives to clear. It'd be less of a pain in the neck and my 3ph blower will clear light snows a lot faster than I'm willing to drive in reverse.

All of this reminds me that it's time to do a major greasing on the blower's pto shaft, and this year I'll have to take a link out of the drive chain. Getting to be that fall stuff time of year again.

Hey Tom G,

Thanks for the reply..I'm not sure if you are familiar with the 3000 series from Cub. They are garden tractors that do not have a CAT 1 3 pt setup like our CUT's do. I have a JD 4100, which the price for the Front mounted thrower is expensive no doubt. The Cub's attachement is a lot less, and is close(not exactly) to the price of the Rear mounted thrower's you are talking about. I'm going front mounted regardless (too many driveways to contend with- I'm not looking backwards all that time) The Cub's attachement is the direction I'm heading. I know its the end of summer but I like to think ahead, way ahead...

I do not have the actual price on this units from my dealer (many requests-and still no idea) so I'm open to who
can supply it...

Sounds like a good plan. For a front blower on any compact, Art's comment about chains is good to keep in mind. I have few traction problems on frozen gravel and snow pack with turf tires and 3ph blower on a heavier tractor. However, sometimes I could use more steering getting around sharp corners and a front blower or blade for that matter. Steering is more of a problem for front mounts and it may be a greater problem than traction. Chains help steering even on 2wd tractors.

This next question possibly Art would know right away.
The stock 2 ply tire on a 3204 series, is not a true 23 x 9.5 -12. Its on the small size for sure, and not durable.
I just received and mounted Carlisle Turf masters 4 ply
which are the stock size of 23 x 9.5- 12. Its night and day a bigger & better tire even though I stayed with the stock size. Now clearence around the wheel wheel is a lot less,
and now I'm not sure when i receive my winter chains, they will have enough room. Just when you think you thought of everything..

I question that Cub should have factored in since their 23 x 9.5-12 is not a true size, is when the owner needs a new tire and since, they should have made the wheel large enough. I cant see how lugs would work as well...

Does anybody have carlisle Turf masters (23 x 9.5-12) and chains setup on their Cub 3204 ? ( the odds on this as rare I'm sure)

Always a new problem to resolve,

FYI,

Finally got to use my Cub 3204 and 45" thrower this weekend.
I'm very, very happy. Tons of power, zero slippage, quiet operation, handled all snow types effortlessly...
Exceeded all my high expectations, and then some...I just need a cab !! (just kidding- I can handle being a snowman!)
