    Default Snowblower for Kubota B2400

    Hello,

    I just recently purchased a used B2400 Hydrostat. I was hoping to use the 3pt snowblower, that I used last year. But when I measured it today it is 6ft. I bought it used last year to use with my Belarus 310 tractor, it did not work so well because the tractor moved too fast in reverse without riding the clutch. I was thinking that it was a 5 ft snowblower & had searched the forums on TBN & found that people were using the B2400 with 5ft snowblowers. The snowblower is an older Allied snowblower & looks to be too big for the B2400. Is anyone using the B2400 with a 6 ft snowblower? I have a 1900 ft gravel driveway with some hills & had quite a bit of drifting last year. I found a Blizzard 4 ft snowblower locally in the ads. I'm not sure that I should go with it, if it is exactly 4ft as advertised, as that appears to be the width of my tires. Thanks for any help that you guys can give!

    I'd put the six footer up for sale and look for a 54 incher, or 60incher max.

    I would use the 6 footer and go real slow. I have a friend that has a 32 HP JD and he uses a 7 FT. and goes very slow.

    Your blower should be several inches wider than your outside tire tread.

    If your rear PTO can handle the weight, then a 7' blower would be fine, but not ideal. Simply take smaller cuts with each pass after the first one and you can cut a 7' blower into any smaller size that you want.

    Thanks for all of your replies! I think I will keep my eyes out for a good deal on a smaller one, but plan on possibly trying to use the bigger one up until then.
    On a different note, do any of you know much about the driveway alarms that use the magnetic probe technique? I am considering purchasing one, but really think I would rather go with the hardwired versus the wireless. It looks like they want to sell you the wire, but just wondering if buried telephone drop wire would work just as well? I was considering using vacant pairs in my existing telephone drop wire or burying new drop wire, probably about 1000 ft. Thanks for your input!!
