    Default Homemade snowblower

    My dad observed a friend using his new $4,000 snowblower and decided to tackle building one for his Ford tractor. He used the same ratios for the auger and slinger as the factory made unit. It has worked pretty good so far. He is still working out the bugs and learning to use it. Enjoy!

    I'm impressed! Looks like it will do the job, and the workmanship looks pretty good too. Is he going to paint it? Also, can the blower chute be rotated to throw snow to either side?

    Definately going to paint it! Just putting it through the paces before making it pretty! The chute does rotate...he elected manual rotation...working on the "KISS" principle.

    Very nice.
    So what did it end up costing him? Just go ahead and rub it in... for those of us who don't have neither time nor the skills.
    It's the going that counts not the distance!

    What did he use for the gear box? It looks like a rear differential out of some vehicle.

    Also, what bugs are there still?
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    im new --sorry for the delay--the rear end i used is out of a 1986 chevette .you have to mount it upside down because of the angle (drive teeth has to mesh on the flat ) for the most strength

    I am thinking about doing this also. Can you post the gear ratios or at least RPM of the auger. I am assuming the prop speed is around 540 RPM?
