 What snowblower to get

I want to get a rear mounted snowblower for my Kubota L3130. My Kubota dealer sells a brand called Meteor. The New Holland dealer sells the Pronovost Puma line. I have heard many good things about the Puma, but not much about the Meteor. The prices are fairly close, but I am not too concered about the price anyway, I want to get the better blower. Thanks for any ideas

Stephen

I got a 51" new meteor Snow blower and very happy with it. Very well built for the price. Built better than some higher priced ones. Where is there a dealer i bought my from ebay and it was never used. Can't find a dealer anywhere. Look at my pics. If you want more just ask.

Stephan if you would ask for a brochure on the full line of the Provenost line you will find things to consider for comparision. Look at the size of the blower, width as well as diameter. Look at the paddles of the blower as the shape does make a difference! Look at the standard features as well as options like on the skid shoes as one might work better on your driveway then the other. I have a blacktop drive way and enjoy a good sharpe edge to cut it down but if I had a gravel driveway I wouldn't want that type.

 What snowblower to get

sbremm,
I'm pretty impressed with my Puma 64" blower. It does a great job clearing my 1600' drive and large working areas. It is a little sensitive to picking up rocks though. Smaller stones are no problem. If I were buying again, I'd get the 72" model which is as wide as my R1 tires at maximum width. With HST I don't think this would be a problem, just reduce speed.
You might like to peruse the posts by wigglybridge too, as I think his Blizzard blower has a couple of great features.
If you do look at the archives, please keep in mind most of my gripes relate to things I could/should have avoided.
One thought: If you buy now, will your warrantee be from time of purchase or the start of snow season?

Good luck,
bliz

I have a 5' Meteor and it's been fine through five seasons. I think of them as basic middle quality machines that deliver good value. I'd go for another one as long as the price was appreciably lower than high-end brands. As Art mentioned, bigger fans, cupped blades and skid shoe options are worth quite a bit. I haven't bent an auger and I have backed into things but the extra ruggedness of high-end machines may be worth it.

Different skid shoes on mine might make it more useful on my gravel drives before free-up up with the standard Meteor shoes, I don't even bother trying it until the gravel is frozen and I have a good layer of snow pack built up. If I were shopping I'd sure get a hydraulic chute rotator. If I didn't have a rear outlet I might even put one on just for the blower, but if you have a rear outlet it'll likely end up almost in continuous use.. Can't say how useful a chute rotator is, although there are electric ones I hear.

I have seen wigglybridge's Blizzard in person. He is my next door neighbor. It looks like a nice blower. I actually have gotten some prices on them too, just forgot to mention it in my fist post. I will definently keep them in mind too. Thanks for the info guys.

Stephen

I would make sure it has four paddles, not three.
I believe the woods has a bolt on cutting edge, but
exspensive. I'm happy with my Provonost puma.
Lot's of grease fittings!And I think you could change
the cutting edge fairly easy, though it is welded in.
Watch your shoe adj. and it should last a long time.

Bizzard,

Is your blower a 3PH mount, if so how do like it? I see you have a 1600 foot drive so you should be a good reference for many people with long drives.

Dennis,
Love it. I was spending $200-$500 per year on plow/truck repairs the last few years due to snow conditions. Spent maybe $20 this year on grease, chain lube and shear pins. Also saved many hours of plowing time and a lot of hours freezing either repairing or getting un-stuck, plus I could clear areas the truck couldn't. Just so much easier with the blower!

Hey Stephen, heckuva way to talk to someone 300' away... but welcome! These guys are great.

Bliz has a good point on the warranty -- I didn't get my 3pt mower last fall on the same logic. Now might be the time to get a good price on a blower, though?
