    2005 JOHN DEERE 4115 SOLD - 2014 NEW KUBOTA B2650 - AND - 2011 KUBOTA RTV 1100

    Default B2650 SNOWBLOWER

    Is the new kubota B2650 have enough @ 26 hp for the 63 inch snow blower?
    My John Deere 4115 had a 47 inch snow blower @ 24 hp and that with 8-10 inches of snow would start to lug down pretty good.
    Any thoughts and comments appreciated.

    kubota manuals usually have a table showing maximum recommended implement size.

    Actual real data comes from the end user, not what the manuals says.
    Some auto manufacture's built 4 wheel drive pickup's with 4 cylinder engines that were terribly underpowered..

    Depending on the snow depths or weight of snow (wet sticky snow) there will be times when the blower will lug down.
    I assume you have a Hydrostatic transmission on your B2650 .. just slow down on the ground speed and keep the pto speed up.
    For the past 8 years I have used a Kubota B7800 (30hp) with a 64 inch rear mount snowblower,
    and when the snowblower lugs down a little I just decrease my ground speed.
    After most snow storms I don't usually run my snowblower at the max 540 pto speed.
    540 rpm pto is 2650 rpm engine speed on the B7800, I usually snowblow at 2000 rpm engine speed.
    8-10 inches snow I'd run at 2000 rpm, unless it was really wet snow, then I'd run at full 2650 rpm (540 Pto rpm).

    Yes, that is what I usually do and did with my John Deere 4115.
    But with only 2 more HP and 16" more width on the snowblower - the math does not ad up.
    I guess we'll see when we get 8-10" of snow.
    Thanks for the reply.
