 John Deere 59 quot Snowblower

Just used my 59" snowblower with my 955 today for the first time. Good snow (not wet and heavy) and approximately 6" deep. The question is how far should the snowblower throw the snow??? I thought it would really send it flying with 27hp going to PTO but it only threw it about 7 feet. Does this sound right?

When it comes to the distance & direction the snow goes, it is a function of several things. First, the lighter the snow, the less momentum it will have. Secondly, the hood should be adjustable as to the 'up / down' angle, after a little experience you will find that although it looks impressive, a 100' plume of snow just means you end up wearing more of it. In our commercial use of snowblowers we have found that it is better to have a taller (higher) output shoot and not aim it as high, this way the wind kicks up less of it. Best of luck.

Is the blower new? Is it a front mount? Try pushing more snow into it by increasing the ground speed as Murf suggested. I hope that and maybe a damper adjustment would sovle your problem.

 John Deere 59 quot Snowblower

I am aware of the chute angle adjustment at the top. I was more interested in what other people's experience was with this particular snowblower and how far it blew snow. I guess the only benchmark that I am aware of is my Honda walkbehind snowblower that threw the snow a mile. It was 9hp and only 28" wide. Now I'm throwing a 59" wide path of snow so I guess it doesn't go as far?

I tried various speed and it didn't seem to affect the distance the snow was thrown.

 John Deere 59 quot Snowblower

The snowblower is only a few years old and was hardly used when I bought it with the tractor (99 hours on the tractor). It is a front mount John Deere 59" snowblower. I messed with the angle of the chute and the foward ground speed of the tractor. Regardless, it threw the snow about 7-8 feet.

What I'm trying to find out is whether or not this sounds right or should it be really firing the snow 30 yards?

I,m definitely not an expert on this particular model, but I just checked out the specs on john deere's site (link listed below), and I would certainly think that the 59" blower should throw farther than 7 to 8 feet. It is listed as a 2 stage blower and I have always found that two stage blowers throw at least 20 to 30 feet. You say you tried various ground speeds, but what engine rpm are you running? You should be running near full throttle. Check your tach and see where your pto speed is shown. I'm guessing in the 3000 rpm range. If you're running proper speed and still not performing well, there could be a problem with the blower or possibly it is too large for the tractor. I see that the 4100 is the smallest hp tractor listed for 59". Perhaps the 47" would be a better match.

Thanks. I was running at the PTO speed which is 3200 rpm. The 955 tractor is rated for the 59" blower. I'll call the dealer and see what he says. It is definately not throwing snow 30 feet.

I have used this model of trac and blow. It should throw the snow at least 40 to 60 feet. Mine did for the 60 hrs I used it. Never had a problem as you describe with light powder or heavy slush. There is something not right with yours. I wonder if a shear pin is broken some where. forward speed does play a role, there is a happy medium to that. Oherwise something is not right. This exhausts my expertise on the matter. Probably not much help. sorry

I don't know specs for either the blower or tractor. However, what you describe would sure happen if the blower is a 1000 PTO speed blower ran from a 540 speed PTO. If it's a front mount blower, I've read that some people end up with a drive that turn a blower backwards. That problem, however, I imagine would be noticed right off.

I get about 30'-40' with my 60" blower driven with 24 hp. I keep the deflector fairly open and would get more distance if I closed it. I believe the chute doesn’t to clog with wet snow with an open deflector as frequently. However, as Murf said, I do get covered with snow and have to operate in low visibility when there's a wind. I think I'll experiment with closing the chute a bit. We're supposed to get freezing rain and wet snot for the next several days. I'd just as soon the weather saved me from my experiments.

B.C., does the 955 seem to have plenty of power when operating, can you move at a reasonable speed when blowing? If so there is probably nothing wrong with your blower, it's just the way that particular blower operates. I use to own a woods 74" 3pt snowblower and ran a 970 Deere, the 970 played with the blower but it would not blow snow very far. The problem was design, blower depth, number of blades on fan,and diameter of fan. Now I own a Pronovost and Deere 4600 and there is no comparing the two blowers, the Pronovost has balanced fan and auger bigger fan, deeper fan, 4 blades, 72", and 600.$ cheaper. What I'm saying is if your 955 is not struggling with power or speed while operating the blower most likely it's operating (blowing) at it's capacity.
