    Default JD Front mount 59" blower

    Are there many guys here running this model? Thinking real hard of buying one in the near future. Are you happy with its build quality, performance and such.

    It's getting to be about that time of year again.

    Thanks!

    Quick question here? The 59" Front Blower is narrower then your back wheel width correct?

    The Front Snow Blowers are quite nice,and the do work great as your driving forword instead of reverse but. They cost around three times that of a three point one and you loose the FEL option if or when you need it while blower is on. Second item is Snow Blower needs to be wider then your rear wheels, same as an attachment on three point hitch. I have had both and for me it seemed like when I had front blower on I'd have a task for the FEL, yes you can remove it and install FEL but cold winter days it's never easy. What I run now is rear three point LA2674 snow blower and FEL, for me it's the best of both as my driveway is only about 200' to clear. Best of luck on your choise.

    Not if you change tractors I'm going down in size to a 3720.

    I don't have the 59 inch, but I do have the 47 inch blower (I have a smaller tractor-4110) I wouldn't trade it for a dozen rear mounted. As you get on in years, it gets more and more difficult to drive backwards. Add to that I have a long drive with two curves in it and it is up hill both ways! ( that's the truth--I have to go over a hill in and out) As far as the FEL is concerned I can switch from blower to FEL in less than 15 minutes--NO TOOLS!

    Yep, I thought about that combo too but couldn't see spending the $4300 on a rear mt. The 59" front mt is around $5500 out the door.

    The good thing about this blower is that it only takes 30 seconds to take it off. As I get older I just know that looking backward would take a toll on the neck. Trying to think long term.

    PipK, it sounds like you're the perfect candidate for a nice warm cab.

    I remember getting my 59" front blower for the 3320. I did tons of research and tormented myself about the extra bucks for the front blower but now that I've had it a couple of years the extra bucks don't seem to matter much especially when you do a 600 foot plus driveway! I was just watching a promo video here on a three point blower... I'll take my front blower thanks.

    I have a soft cab--no heat, tho. Been trying to figure out how to mount some type of heater, but haven't come up with an answer yet. Open to any ideas.....
