    JT Bought the Ventrac and got a kubota Diesel. Dan there is no adapter to connect a snow blower. Just drive up to it lift and connect the belt,easy peasy.

    My new F had a fluted washer holding one of the blades on that had a small section missing. Barlows gave me a new one free and it took under 5 minutes to lift front deck, remove nut holding blade and washer on with cordless Hitachi Impact driver, replace damaged washer with new one, put blade and nut back on, tighten it down and drop deck. I probably wouldn't have replaced it if it had an under the machine deck but with front lifting deck it's a piece of cake.

    Sorry for the delay Rip
    I got everything moved up from my rear field storage area to my shed last weekend, took me about a 1/2 hour to reconfigure for winter app.
    I will get you a bunch of pictures

    Hey, no worries, Dan. We have actually been up in BC for a bit and just about to head back down-under this week so would actually be able to look closely at the machine again. Had a bloke using it to keep the place from getting jungle-like with all the record-breaking rain they had in the last few months......said it was working fine.....it got a bit slick on the steeper parts with all the wet, but that is how it is.

    Cheers, Rip

    Hi Dan, In addition to the star attraction in the first photo, the second one give me a pretty good idea of how the blower hooks up. Once I get settled back in Tasmania, perhaps you could take a few of the mounting bracket from more of the side and even with it hooked up.....bracket-to-tractor, not so much bracket-to-blower. In any case, I have a pretty good idea already.

    Thanks, Rip
