    Default Would a snow Blower from a UTV (they have their own engine) be practical to mount on

    Would a snow Blower from a UTV (they have their own engine) be practical to mount on the loader bucket? Any idea how much they cost?
    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Those that I have seen are not very heavy duty.
    More or less the same 'guts' as walk behinds, only wider, just look at the gear boxes.
    Better off to locate a standard PTO type and power it with a suitable engine.
    I recall 5 hp per foot being the requirement, in fact I did power up a 48" with a 16 hp wisconsin using sprocket and chain and it performed great.
    All that said, a rear mount is probably still the best solution all around, just learn to sit sideways as you blow.

    The large Berco is about 7000+- plus sales tax plus shipping or was anyway.

    Your loader would not be able to handle the weight anyway.

    There may also be an issue with turning radius (if that's important to the intended place it will be used), as the blower would extend well beyond the front tires.

    Thanks for the info guys. Guess for now I will stick with my garden tractor mounted snow blower and my CT 120 loader and rear blade.
