    I believe the only othe option are loader mounted blower with rear pto powerpack but i believe these start in the 40HP pto ratings and above. Also in the 10K price range. But there major easy to use. about 2 minutes to hook up and remove with standard quick attach features.

    You can see from my signature that I have a large blower on the front of my B2920. kubota suggests a smaller one but the dealer advised to go with the larger, heavier one.

    I used it last winter with stellar results.

    Easy......Yes - to install you simply take off the loader.....2 minutes. Then you put on the undercarriage mount and drive shaft to the mid mount PTO. 3 minutes. Hook up the hydro lines. 2 minutes.

    Now drive into the blower, flip the lock and insert the pin. 2 minutes.

    Finally, add the chute control .......2 minutes.

    That is about it for me.

    Cost - - -High

    Installation - - - easy.

    Kubota did a nice job.

    I do believe there are a couple of companies that make front mount blowers that have a subframe with a pto shaft that connects to the rear pto. I went with the kubota option that uses the mid pto. It's not terribly hard to install or remove but in the dead of winter I leave the subframe on (the 4240 can have the subframe on the tractor and still use the loader). While everything goes together pretty easily it seams like there's always ice that needs to be removed because it's keeping things from moving or pins from sliding into place. A front mounted blower is worth the money though.

    The folks at Erskine make a snow caster with an extended propeller shaft kit that mates with the rear P.T.O., shaft of your kubota.

    Another excellent option is the Pronovost/Hardy 3 point hitch front mount for the tractor allowing you to mount a less expesive rear mount blower on the front of your B3030 tractor. The Pronovost unit has areversing gearbox to allow the simple attachment of a snow caster or a flail mower or a rear mounted finish mower.

    Are you really intent on buying a front mount blower?, You do know you can buy a very substantial rear mount snow caster for less money.

    The biggest issue for a front mount attachment is reduced ground clearance for the end user as snow and ice will build up and if you get stuck you really get stuck AND you can really get stuck with a four wheel drive tractor if 2 wheels lose traction.

    That is the nice thing about the rear mounts as they add plenty of traction for a tractor.
