Hi, I'm interested in a Bolens model 1948 snow blower and need to know what pto rpm they are designed to run at. I see Bolens tractors matched for this blower with 2- 3 pto speeds , I only have 540. I just learned they are belt driven off the motor but what RPM do they need ? I want to drive it off the 540 PTO.

Re: 1948 snowblower
I don't visit this forum much so sorry for the late response, and I don't even have an exact answer for you but I can say that the PTO off the front of the tractors the 1948 snow thrower was designed to be used with runs about a 1:1 ratio on the drive and driven sheeves, or very close to it the best I can tell which means the input to the thrower gear box should be close to engine operating speeds, or about 2500 rpm (give or take) to be effective.One nice thing about being average is you're not alone.
