    In fact it’s quite easy to reconfigure the lifting arms back to mower deck after the snow season.

    Went and looked at a Ventrac and I like how easy their hitch is. Is Kubota's like that?

    I haven’t seen the Ventrac snow blower adaptor , but the Kubota one is simple enough. It’s about 2” tall, 24” long and the width of the lift arms. The inner (narrower end) has 2 “U” shapes cut into the side bars which side up into place on the horizontal pivot bar (rear part of the 2 point hitch system of the tractor) and then the wide end is bolted to each lift arm using 1” bolts one each side. There is a ” thick plate installed in the lift system to restrict maximum vertical lift. Other than that, the blower pretty much plug & play.

    Have to check that out.. Thanks Dan. The Ventrac you just drive up and jiggle it around and lock in and connect the belt.

    Yep, lot's of miles on it. Got it in March, 2009. It was made in 1996. I also have a recycle deck for it.

    Sure like the 4WD!

    Hey Dan W, Was looking back on these posts and while I will never be mounting a snow blower on my F-2880, I am curious about the mounting adaptor you were describing. Any chance you could post or send me directly a couple photos of it and how it mounts?

    I keep thinking about making something like a JohnyBucket for my machine, but it would have to go on/off much easier than I can figure so far. That adaptor may get me thinking again. Thanks in advance, Rip
