Also, new belts and they're tight.
You're right they're knives not the hammer style. 128 of them.
grass is between 8 to 10 inches when i cut it. sometimes less. i've got a wedding reception that will be done in this field, labor...
I'm going to be into the rough ground if i lower to two inches. It's at 3 1/2 +/- inches now. That height seems to be the best for my ground. The unit is level like you mentioned. This is heavy...
thank you very much I will try that.
about a week ago the northern part of the county got close to 5 inches of snow.in the last 3 or 4 days it has been in the mid eighties and very muggy. I have...
I have a NH TN75 with an older nh 918H flail.92 inch. New knives on it. Flail is counter rotating motion. my tires R1's fully loaded.
I am curious if I lowered my tire pressure would itt have...
Solid blocks of wood or jack stands. Takes a couple of minutes. plus emergency brake is set.
had a few storms since i got the blower. Love it, wished i'd bought the pull type yrs ago.:cloud9:
I didn't get a normand, but i did just buy a Lucknow inverted/pulltype blower. I've had rear mount blowers for close to 15 yrs. we do get a decent amount of snow up here in Maine. This pull type...
great ideas guys, thanks. I have a 35x75ft truck garage and my truck and trailer goes in it every night(I haul milk for a living). I keep the garage heated, lowest 40f. Warmer if I'm in there...
True. I have 50 acres. No problem. But the throwing distance is a plus to brag about. Its how fast the fan gets rid of it, which usually translates into distance. Even where I'm at I keep the flapper...
These luck nows throw the snow great. Big 4 paddle fan.
I'm not sure of fan diameter. I'm not near the unit. But its a big 4 paddle fan. It'll throw the snow a longgg ways.
No I haven't tried another brand I've good luck with the lucknow blowers.
takes a couple of storms to figure the plan of attack. But so far, for me, it's the way to go. I'll hang on to the old push type for a year then sell it. But i can clear my yard in less time and its...
If you have a big enough tractor not a problem.
Dave m7040, thanks for the info.
Like the back blade. Going to try and get time to build one this summer.
In the bigger blowers, a 4 paddle deep fan is better, usually. If you gotr a blade on front, blower on the rear, you'll make quick quick of clearing snow.
A little over $6200. Which included delivery
Bought a new Lucknow pull type/inverted snowblower. 7 1/2ft unit. My NH TN75 does a good job with it. It takes a bit getting used to, but makes life a lot easier. Still have my regular 7 1/2ft unit....
LED's are nice. I put grote Trilliant's on my tractor.
I put a strip of reflective tape on the side of mine. Helps it stand out at night when backing out into roadways.
Nice blower for the price.
For yrs all i had were two wheel drive tractors and blowers, worked fine. Never had chains.. Usually 8 or 9ftr's. Just find one that's rated for your pto hp.
I agree. Never been a big fan of putting chains on a front end of vehicles.
It's 86f and I'm on here thinking about next winter.......got to be prepared. :thumbsup:
yes that sounds about right. The last one I bought was about $350
IMO you'll be all-set. The 3200 is a nice machine, load the rears no need to load the fronts. V-bar chains are aggressive as **** and well worth the extra $$'s. Nice chains. A little ballast will...
Excav8ter, check your in box
I've snowblowed with an open station. 8ft blower. Not fun, alot of snow coming back at you.
I too like a plow with a relief valve.....but i like to spend your money too.
I'm not one to pass up a chance to arc weld, I need all the practice I can get... Frankly I'm horrible at it.
I grew up on the farm with a Lincoln Arc 225 welder. Still can't weld good.
40hp tractor, winter cab, pull type blower, load the rears. I've got a regular 3 point blower, ordering a pull type. Pull type with a FEL, only way to go IMO.
I have a cabbed tractor, love it in...
They look like a nice well built unit.
Thats what i call stuck.
Mine has the 16x16 with mechanical shuttle. Both work very well. IMO, the 16x16 option is worth more.
Better you than me.
I'd take it for another test run and have a shop all scheduled to go. Bring it in and out it up on a lift. Do a state vehicle inspection on it. Brakes/exhaust/front end parts, etc. If you're paying...
I've got a tn75 2009yr. So far so good. Maybe 900 hours. Snowblowing , bush hogging, and some fel work.
Don't hesitate to put a plow on. Trip on the blade and the hydraulic bypass on the pistons you'll be all set.
As someone who has snowblowed a 650ft driveway for 15 yrs, with a rear mount, I'd try the plow on the front. Then save up for a rearmount blower too. Learn the prices of a rearmount and look for a...
For his workload I think that's an ideal setup. Plus there usually is no front or mid mount PTO on that size of tractor. Too pricey to do a front mount vs the pull type.
in my opinion you're correct.I've seen guys talk about how fast they can cover ground with a plow versus a snow blower. But as winter goes on it takes me the same amount of time Snowbowl my 600 its...
And I don't have a lot of faith in the 1/2 ton tranny plowing a 1/4 mile drive. If you do stay on 4 low, which I'm sure you do, but that length of drive it would be very tempting to go to high range.
Leonz has got good suggestions. I have a 75hp tractor w/cab + 7 1/2 blower. You can clear some snow in comfort. The 1/4 mile drive that you have will be **** on that 1/2 ton. You know that already.
The Ag camera does help, but so wouldn't a good set of mirrors. The cost to put factory mirrors on was more than the camera.
ME83, thanks for the input. I expected to be able to cover more ground with the inverted blower, especially in the small storms.
GMan, I agree. I get some good winds, drifts easy. High banks equal, bigger drifts. If you're in a wide open area, snow blowers work well. A cab with hyd controls on the chute, for me , is a must....
definitely an I deal set up. my concern is your 100 tractor has a heavier front end weight than mine. But I also keep my front end loader on.from watching the videos the balance of that 100 new...
Thanks. Get back to you. That unit in the video was real smooth working unit. I'm thinking some brands drag easier thru the snow, than others.
I had an 8ft diamond plow on a pickup for yrs. I live 650ft off of the road in a field on a hill. We get between 8ft to 10ft of snowfall ayr. To do my driveway right, takes 2 to 3 hours to open up...
My TN75 isn't as heavy as your 100, but thats a lot closer than some of the smaller framed tractors that I've seen pulling these units. Obviously, clearance and wheel diameter is key, i think.
got one already. looking for another toy
when i did need to slow down, I just dropped a gear. Didn't need to stop. just threw in the clutch and shifted. I have operated hydro units and they are nice, but for me bush hogging or...
excav8ter, i did watch the video. Worked pretty good.
The first pass did you need to keep the blower up part way? And how much weight do you have on the front end?
I noticed the username.....good site over here too. I'm located at the bottom of the County.
I have an Ag cam of a back up camera. it does help on the long drives
How's it do on the deep storms? 12 to 18 inch type of stuff. I usually keep my FEL on, need to use it , plus extra weight.
I have a 7 1/2 ft luck now blower on back of my NH TN75. It has a 16x16 tranny w/mechanical shuttle. Works very well. 90% of the time I select a gear and range and go. Seldom bump the clutch. But i...
Really prefer not to buy new, just yet. Looking around for one in my region, who knows if i will find it. I want a 90 inch, covers my tracks good.
I'm all set with what i have now, putting a back...
I'm curious of anyone has owned or had first hand experience use of a pull type blower?
I own a 4 wheel drive NH TN75da. I now have a typical 3 point mounted 7 1/2ft Lucknow. If I could stumble...
And it's state law you run 4 studded tires here in Maine, but the only time you get hassled is if a vehicle inspection is due in the winter months. But this came about with the proliferation on front...
We run studded tires all 4 corners of my minivan and two cars. Nov to march. Never noticed any big difference in stopping power on dry pavement. And it is possible to drill and stud tires. Very few...
get a snowpusher? They can be designed to back drag with
FWIW, I put one of these Rear View Backup Cameras - SSB Tractor to help with rear mounted blower. It does help. takes a bit of getting used to. But on the long sections it works well. One of our...
If you get out on your own, you weren't stuck. At least not the way i think.:thumbsup:
Nice looking unit. How wide is the snowblower?
I have a factory cab tractor. Not a scut. But I do get some fogging up as well. Once you get good heat going and airflow most of it will dissipate. Curtis has always made a good aftermarket cab. I...
Still seems strange to me......IMO, Anything you spray onto the blower will be gone inside of 30 seconds. I can't see that it would hep any.
Marshmallow Fluff Homepage. This Is It, Folks! Once you have your last fluffernutter sandwich, use that instead of a coffee can.
5 gallon bucket and a coffee can.....can't wear 'em out.
rayclar- looks good.
I've really never had any big problems with a chute clogging. Never waxed/painted/lubricated the blower at all. One in a blue moon it will clog, but that's from trying to do too much and the RPM's...
these are what i run as moose lights.
Be looking forward to your experiences with that.
That may be your answer. Where are you located?
Even where I live i kinda wish I'd done a a rear pull blower. Have a few at best, snow storms(per year) that a rear pull MIGHT have been...
Erskin is not hydralic powered. Gear box off of the rear PTO. Been around for a long time.
looking for a good strobe light/beacon with a protective metal cover. I tend to have a few tree limbs rub the top of the cab when bush hogging. I don't want a plastic/composite cover, but one made of...
Front Snowblower Mountings
I also will go out a couple of times in the winter and plow a snow fence. Actually i use my blower for that. It keeps the drive clear on windy days between storms.
i got a crazy good deal on my tractor a few yrs ago. But if i was to dream, I might look at the biggest compact with a front mounted blower and put a back blade or a box blade to drag away from...
very good point.
I am ordering a 8ft HLA pusher that i can back drag with. I should be able to clear my garage doors easier, plus other areas. Buckets ok but this will work better for me.
I put just about 100 to 150 hours on my tractor. I service it every fall, always change the fuel filter.
If i do this , thats the plan. Get it rated for as much as i can in the 1/ ton class
Looks good. I'm pricing the same thing but in XLT pkg.
thats what i spec'd.
I just spec'd out a ford crew/6.5 ft bed with the tow package. 3.73's 11,200 rated tow capacity, etc. 1/2 ton, eco boost, etc.
As i have posted earlier, i will be maxing out the tow capacity, but...
When doing a comparison of pulling power, axle ratios' need to be the same or darn close.
will watch the vid later, but should be interesting to see how they do.
You might as well get it over with, go trade for a 30 or 40hp, cab(heat A/C, sat radio), FEL, Hydro, front mounted blower....0% interest:D
I would think it will cost you $5k more for the small block diesel? Than add into the cost of the def fluid and overall cost of maintaining emissions. And if you hang on to it more than 3 to 5 yrs,...
If I could justify it it, i would trade my Gn just for what you're thinking about, a tilt deck.
Fordman, how long is your deck on your GN?
And your handle is Fordman, but thats a dodge in the...
333292+2 for the GN
I got an inline 6 Cummins. 485hp 1750 torque. used to have 525hp with 1850 torque. the 600hp 2050 torque is the big one.:cool2:
Of course these motors cost almost as much as a pickup.
We used a Bombi that looked like that to groom snowmobile trails. Quite a work horse, but our trail system out grew that. Now we run a NH TS110 and a TM140, both with suretrac systems on them.

try theses guys too.
I agree. An hour usually is enough, but if it gets down to -#'s I'll do a few hours. If your going to do anything, use a block heater or a Kats in line water heater. I've had good luck with the Kats...
