    My tractor is 23 hp (18 at the PTO) and I have the 51" kubota snowblower. I use it on a 1/4 mile gravel driveway and I love it for the deep snowfalls.
    I also use a plow for lesser amounts.

    I run a 10' blower on a Deere using 15 HP per foot at 1000 pto...15 HP per foot seems to keep things moving....When one has the time and a creeper gear to cut small passes, you can run a blower that should be sized to wheel width......A cab is a must for all day snow blowing

    How would you know anything about snow? You guys don't get any do you?? !!! The chains work great by the way, a little cutting and welding and all's well. Thanks again Jerry. I hope we actually get a good winter this year, I am tired of all the people who moved up in the last few years complaining about how bad it is. Bring back 1978-79!! CJ

    We got off pretty good a year ago, but last winter we received over our average 140". I live just S/E of Boyne Mtn.. well you know where, you picked up the chains.. [ a big ski hill, not a big moutain to you moutain folks.. ]. We usually get one big snow at the first of the season, a system snow, then get daily lake effect the rest of the winter. Then another system snow in the spring. Usually get enough snow that the ground is insulated out in the woods and never get any frost to speak of. Last ten years, we still get the lake effect, but we are getting more and more of the system snows that usually hit downstate. The big thick heavy stuff.... Don't like it... But my blower is all painted up, greased, and ready to go...

    BX24

    Default Re: 21HP CUT and a blower... am I dreaming?

    I have a bx24 which I think is similar and I was having someone plow the driveway. Last year I got a used 5' Puma rear blower. In general it worked well and handled one snow fall that reached to the top of the blower.
    I added a winch and actuator arm to be able to rotate and direct the outlet which made things easier. Also found I needed chains both front and back. The problem comes when you get a good size snow fall overnight and in the morning it is raining with a hard freeze forecast for later in the day. It can be a mess, especially down by the road where the town plows and there is too much water in the snow for the blower to lift and throw through the chute. I needed the front bucket or a call to the plow truck to help out. Don't need no cab, its lovely out there when its pouring down and the wind is howling throwing it back at you wearing glasses and doing neck exercises dreaming of the truck you used to have.

    I bought my 60" Lucknow from a retired CBC executive who used it for many years on a 18 hp Ford Hydro 2WD. He said it worked fine on the little tractor. I have used it on a 37 hp MF 35 and a 35 hp TAFE (with loader and cab) but this year I plan to try it on my 21 hp kubota B7510 HSD.
