 Front end loader snowblower

Does anyone make a snowblower for a compact untility tractor that mounts to the booms of a front end loader? It seems to me to be a simple solution, but I haven't been able to find anything out there.

I had to build my own, i hav a mf 20 hp compact tractor
with a 6 ft snowblower attached to the loader forks I had to make a reversing gearbox for the power take off and run a shaft under
It works great

how did you engineer this? what kind of gear box? I am very interested in converting mine.

DWilliams, if you hunt through the archives, I describe somewhere back there how I've done them.

Basically all you need is a piece of heavy wall tubing, and a couple of heavy gears, and some strong roller chain. If you're a bit of a scrounger, and hobble stuff together, you can also use the gears and chain from the timing chain off a couple of big truck engines.

You basically want a set of gears, and a chain, running in an oil bath, inside a piece of tube steel, the drives a driveshaft running up the under-side of the tractor.

It can all be made up from stock parts with minimal machining and welding by anybody with even a modicum of fabricating skills.

Best of luck.

I have bought a snow blower but if I had the time I would us a hydralic motor runing off of the remote hydraulics as a skid steer with a variable flow control for speed. Even 2000 psi is alot of force to contend with. In my opion direct drive off the impeller with a hydraulic motor and a couple of hoses is alot easier than the chain driven idea,this is the same idea that my erkine snow blower uses in a transfer box off of the rear pto.

Jazak, while it sounds easy to do as you say, it really isn't that simple at all.

It's kind of like the theory that if you put a generator on the front wheels of an electric car, and drove the back wheels, you would never run out of electricity. It sounds wonderful, but won't work.

A hydraulic motor, big enough to run a blower would be pricey, likely more than the cost of the hardware to do it mechanically. Secondly, that big hydraulic motor would also be thirsty, a hydraulic motor makes power by combining two things, high pressure and fluid flow rates, you can juggle the figures, one higher, one lower or somewhere in between, but high power requires BOTH high pressure (1,500psi and up) and high flow rates, for this, at least 15 gpm, preferably in the 25 gpm area.

The big problem though is hydraulic flow rates. A 'typical' 35hp CUT has a main pump (maximum) output of about 10 gpm if it's gear drive, and only about 7 gpm if it's a hydrostat, and bear in mind that is "maximum capacity" i.e. calculated, or 'bench-tested' not including parasitical losses from the system, including biggies like the quick-disconnects and the small diameter remote lines.

In the end I think you would need to connect at least 3 CUT's together to make enough flow to make a hydraulic blower work. I've used them on specially-equipped "high flow rate skid steers and powered by (expensive & complex) stand-alone PTO-drivien hydraulic systems, but they still don't work as nice as a PTO unit.

Best of luck.

I agree, maybe the cuts self contained system would be marginal at best it was my first stab. A rear pto pump would do the trick in a heart beat along with a tank on the 3 pt hitch. My snow blower uses a long drive shaft running under the tractor to the rear pto with a power transfer box that slides into the snow blowers frame and pto. Yeah ,I looked at JD mid pto blower and I will tell everyone again.JD's 59 inch blower does NOT come close to the quality of this unit and it was cheaper to boot !!!!! yes ,the pump/motor would cost and everyone has design ideas, hydraulic disconects are faster and in my opion easier than welding and fabrication. The tank/pump set up like a 3pt backhoe would give someone that wants to keep the fel one the tractor an option. I would have looked into this option rather than dropping my fel to mount the blower. The idea of going into a 4ft high snow drift and sending it 30-40 ft in the other direction is is is AAARRRGGGHHHHH HULK SMASH !!!!You know the price of convenentcy and time are expensive !!! Hind sight is 20/20.

Look at the John Deere in my pics. That is one heck of a snow removal machine.

Thats an erskine blower and they do work well. We just had a customers 135 white in for some tranny work with a 108" mounted to it with chains to boot! Part of the fun with working a unit like that is the adjustablity of the spout with full control from the cab.
