 Want to run a front snowblower on the back

The engineer in me says "yes", the fabricator in me says "no".

There's an old engineering saying "Nothing is impossible, but somethings are prohibitively expensive to do."

A typical front PTO runs at 2,000 rpm, the rear PTO is 540 rpm.

Now, some front blowers are 540 models with a gearbox on them, but not many, especially the OEM models.

It will NOT run backwards however. The fan is designed for a certain rotation, spinning it backwards it won't do anything, especially blow snow.

If however you can get a good deal on the blower, I'd happily give you a good deal more than $200 for it. Laughing out loud

Best of luck.

Thanks Murf, I understand the difference between the challange of "Can I do it" to "Wow that was a lot of work". The unit is 50 miles from me yet sight unseen and I would guess your offer of purchase would mean getting it to Ontario, Canada . Again the devel is in the details. Thanks I love this site. very helpfull.

Welcome to the site, stick around, we're a fun bunch of people!! Laughing out loud

If the unit is in reasonable condition, no, I'll take it where it is, I'd have it picked up in Ann Arbor, cash on the barrel head.

Like I said, the big problem will be the rotation and speed change.

Best of luck.

 Want to run a front snowblower on the back

Surplus Center has some directional change boxes--some inline, some angle.

Murf, a FRONT 2,000 RPM PTO? a.) What turns it b.) and what keeps it constant?

Could a 1000 RPM mid-mount PTO be used instead?

BRAIN FART: The other day I was thinking of converting my 6' 3pt flail mower into a snow blower. It's on Detroit Metro Craigslist for $200, but still no takers. Murf, you mentioned something awhile back about guys making their own blowers with a rotor and rubber paddles. This seems like it would the perfect set up. The rear of it is open, as is the front for grass to enter. The rotor flails could be easily removed and longitudinal rubber paddles put in their place. Rotation direction could be chaaged by flipping the PTO drive train the other way toward the rear I think (actually I'm too tired to think so somebody correct me here).

Metalman, I decided not to do this --I'm staying with my snow blade on the skid steer. But this may be ticket for you! I need cash but my laptiop is dying so I would consider trading a decent laptop instead--but it has to be able to support a data aircard.

BTW, I'm north of Monroe about 10 miles on US-24 and I-75.
