Hello,
I have a JD 770 25 hp tractor with rear pto. I would like to buy a rear mount snowblower of good quality but I'm not sure about which are the best constructed. I have a 1500' gravel driveway on a slight grade in North East Pa. and will have some snow to play with. I was thinking about a Woods SS60, does this sound good or what other type should I check on. Any advise would be helpful.

OldWoods: There is a thread on this site that had info on snowblowers and some outfit that would mount them on the front. 1500 feet of drive I feel certain would require front mounting. I have a Kubota 60" blower from a previous tractor that I'm going to use on my Kioti this year because I used the FEL last year and the blower is better for me. I live in northwest Pa. and remove snow in three parking lots and two driveways so I'd highly recommend a blower mounted on the front from that experience. Best of luck finding a blower.

The woods unit is a good unit make sure you get the power spout rotation you can normally not reach the hand crank for the manual rotation from the seat.

I think that a mid-pto would be required for a front end blower with enough power to work properly. To have my tractor retro-fitted with mid-pto would cost several thousand bucks extra. I was also told that a front mount hyro power blower would not have the required power even if an extra server were added. I sure would like to have it on the front end but that may bring to total cost up to about 5 or 6 grand. I think I'm stuck with rear mounting.

The mid-pto option for a current 790 lists for $398. I wonder why the 770 is so much more?

I bought a provonost puma, has been a good blower with grease fittings where they should be.
The Woods looked real good as well and had a replaceable
cutting edge which I wanted but, was about $700.00 more.
I paid 1400.00 for a 54" puma.
My drive is 200'x13' with a 50x50 parking area.Paved.
20-30 min. to complete. Rear blower with the bucket makes a good combo for me.

Oldwoods guy,
I have been using a rear mount blower on my 2300' gravel driveway in west central Wisconsin for 8 years and am switching to front mount to save my next anymore wear and tear. I'd think hard about a front mount Smile.

I do my drive over 1/4 mile and parking areas with a rear mount. I do a neighbors when he's out of town and that is almost a mile. The widows is almost as long as mine up the side of a hill.

All the above are done with a rear mount. Turning and looking helps keep the body streched and limber. At least that is what I keep telling myself. I do have a neck injury and this does not seem to bother especially if I remember to stretch my neck and upper body stuff B4 I go out and stretch out the kinks when I come back in.

YEA I'd like a front mount with heated cab Blab, Blab, Blab. But the rear mount preformance of my Pronovost would be hard to equal unless I threw a ton of money at it...

You could probably get a new JD 59" 2stage front mount with all the stuff you need for less than $4500.

I'm with you harvey,it makes you feel alive to get out there
in the wind right?
When the day comes I can't turn a little to look over my shoulder to clean out my driveway I think it will be over.
You might as well go in the house and put your depends on and lay on the couch.
Unless you 've got the dough for the cab and front mount that is.

Well, the one thing I've got to say is that a front blower might be faster for clearing moderate snows from long fairly straight drives. At least I know that my 3ph blower is willing to clear moderate snows faster than I'm willing to drive in reverse. But then, I'd loose a bunch of time clearing highway entrances and short wide areas. I get a lot of mileage by plowing short runs forward with the loader and backwards with the blower--all without turning around or driving back to the start without doing any clearing. I don't want to give up my loader especially since I'm very averse to playing on the highway or near it in order to clear enough of the shoulders.

I'll stick with my 3ph--easy for me to say I guess since I don't have a mid-pto but I do have a neck issue too and it's no problem. A physio once diagnosed my tennis elbows as resulting from my head not being on straight--some would suspect such even without a medical diagnosis.
