    Default Inland 72" blower value??

    So i went and looked at a blower today. It was a older inland 72 or 73" blower. It was in not to bad of shape but does need some work. Now i got the thing for $650 as thats as loow as he would deal on it. I think its an ok deal but it does need a few things. It needs the 3pt pins(cheap and easy to fix and i got a new set for 10 bucks alreay) and the auger is bent in one spot(im thinking that ill heat it up and bend it back to the shape it was suppose to be originally). Now im just wondering if this is a good deal, i have been looking and was will to spend about 1500 on one as thats what i have been finding for average price. I have found 4 other inland 6' blowers for around the 1000-1800 mark. I think i got a good deal for the little bit of work that the blower needs.

    Well i went ahead and bought the blower and got it home. I replaced the pins and such first. So i got the thing all lined up to put on my quick hitch, and sure as heck, it doesnt fit, the blower to wide(about 6"). So i removed the quick hitch and it does fit the tractor without it so im just using it that way for now. Im not sure but how far is a blower suppose to throw snow? This one only throws it about 10-20 feet at 2300 rpm. It might go farther but it doesnt look like it does. But i think once a get a good free day im gonna remodify the brackets for the blower so it works with my quick hitch, it just might have to go on the inside of the pins instead of the outside.

    Is the fan 3 or 4 blade? 4 will handle more snow.
    Diameter of fan will also determine distance of throw, 24" tosses farther than a 16".
    The gap between the fan tips and the tunnel is also a big factor.
    Big gap will shorten distance, if previous owner blew lots of gravel then you probably have worn fan tips.
    You can always weld extensions to close up a worn fan tip or add rubber or plastic ends to the fan .

    Either way at $650 you can't complain, maybe a bit of fine tuning and you are a winner.

    Ya i think its a 16" fan with 3 blade. its been used, but overall in not to bad of shape. Im heading to town today to see if i can find a revesable hydralic motor for the chute controle. The only one i have found so far is 300 bucks but im gonna look around today and see what i can find for that. i have a cylinder for the deflector that im gonna rig up too. Ya im not complaining for the price, i know if anything, i can sell it and get my money back out of it.

    Does any one have a picture of how to build a chute rotation unit. I would like to add hydralic rotation to the chute if possible. Thanks

    I will try and attach a copy of the 73" Farm King snowblower I have. I don't know if it will be of any help, each make is constructed differently. It should give you some ideas anyway.

    I recently contacted Farm King about my snowblower fan clearance. It is a three bladed impeller and I have a well worn impeller with 5/8" clearance. I was told that the newer machines have their blades with slightly less than 1/4" clearance.
    I would guess that 1/8" would be better. I hope to take my impeller off this summer and either repair or replace with a new home made impeller.

    By the way, I can throw snow about 25' to 30' with my blower - justgot to keep the engine revs up and use the right PTO speed. If dual range PTO - use higher output range and less engine rpm - has worked for me (with 540/720 ranges)

    My chute is fully mechanical - all done by hand. A simple system and works well. Can easily be operated by hand from the tractor driving seat in an open station tractor. With a cab on the tractor, the hydraulic operation would be better suited of course.

    Look at the Manual Chute control section of the manual.

    You will see the 1/8" dia flexible wire cable wraps around the chute base and around the long handle at each end of the cable. The cable ends are clamped securely to the handle shaft. There is a small "U" bolt at the midway point on the far side of the chute, that clamps the cable to that position of the chute. Moving the cable turns the chute one way or the other - depending on handle direction.

    I bought one in almost new condition last spring for $1500 after snow season. Used it some last weekend, only about 20-25' of throw with the wind, so not as much as I had expected. Work was in not so deep snow with 50hp in front of it, and I had about all I really wanted with the reverse gears I had to use.

    I have tried 2 different quick hitches, a Cat 1 by turning the lift pins to the inside and a Cat 2 with them out, and neither would work at all.
