 Moving snow with JD750

I'm plowing a parking lot (lined with curbs) with a JD750 equipped with a loader and a 6 ft back blade. It works but is slow and I was considering trying to find a 59" front mounted blower. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who has experience with this combination (or similar). Would it work significantly better than the blade/bucket combination? None of the local dealers can come up with the blower. (I believe it's model 359) Any ideas about how I could find one?Thanks,Steve

I can't comment of the exact combination. However, the combination I use is a loader and 3ph blower. My yard and drive, like most other I imagine, cannot be cleared entirely with the blower. I have to use the loader quite a bit. I probably would be a good idea to figure out where a blower isn't going to work and how those area are going to be cleared. Then, you figure out if you can live with the arrangement. I also have a 24" hand blower and shovels that get pressed into service, but I'd just as soon avoid the handwork.

Thanks for the reply Tom. Is it a JD750 that you're using? If so, does the lack of a live PTO cause clogging problems with the rear blower. I think a blower will work everywhere I need to plow. I need to clear very light snowfalls too, so I was thinking of either using the rear blade to "wind row" it and then blow it away or pushing the snow to one end of the lot with the blower off (using it like a box blade) and then blowing it away. I think it should be built robustly enough to handle that kind of use. Right now it's taking about 2 hours every snowfall, and I prefer not to look backward all that time!
Steve

 Moving snow with JD750

I use a Ford 1710 (24 PTO hp, gears/2-stage clutch). I do use the 2-stage clutch quite a bit. With many types of snows, the chute will clog most times I clutch unless I clear the auger before stopping the PTO. I keep the deflector fairly open, which I believe also helps keep the chute from clogging. I'm not sure how I'd clear the auger without a live PTO, but lifting the 3ph at the end of a pass for a few feet before stopping might help. Maybe somebody knows a few tricks.

I probably could live with a front blower/back blade setup. My 3ph-blower/FEL setup just sort of evolved. However, I do think that having several tools available, rather than relying on any single implement, makes removal a little easier. On the other hand, I do like the loader, and here's an illustration why. I have several short sections that are used for turnarounds, and they are too narrow to come in with the tractor from the side. It's very handy to clear them by blowing in one direction and plowing in the other. However, the mounds at the end of plowed sections build up. By late winter, I've got mounds over 6' and the loader is good for stacking snow even higher. I can't start out in December by pushing the snow further back from the drive and make several mounds. I would run into my wife's driftwood garden (not a good idea). If I plowed in the other direction, then the mounds would sit near our parking area and visitors would have to come equipped for climbing glaciers. The main thing about snow removal is figuring out where to put it. The blower is real good at solving most of that problem, and the loader does the rest. However, a blade is a lot better than the FEL for removal.

Thanks for the info. I guess my decision's made. I found a front blower for the 750 using machinefinder.com. The local dealers said it would be very difficult to find but I got lucky and found one in very good condition within 150 miles. Now I have to get the loader off, install the front PTO, put the blower on, and hope for enough snow to justify it all!!

Steve, What works for me is a 60 in blower on the 3p and the loader in the front, then i have a 60 in blade that I bought at an ATV shop $160 and made a bolt on bracket, drop the loader and put blade on in a couple minutes, the blade swivals to different positions but is manuel. between the 3 options it does a real good job for snow. gary
