    Default Rear blower on front 3 point hitch?

    Hello, I was contemplating on putting a 3 point hitch on the front of the tractor with a front PTO, my question is if I got a 3 point snow blower could I use it as a front mount snow blower? Could it handle the stresses of being pushed rather than pulled?

    Thank you.

    You can put a rear blower on the front. If you don't have a front PTO you will need to get a reverser gear box and put it behind your rear PTO and run a long driveline under the tractor. If you have a front PTO (like my tractor does) you get rid of all the extra drivelines out the back and under the tractor but you will probably still need a reverser gear box.

    Thank you, so the front PTO spins the opposite direction I take it? The front 3 point hitch and front PTO are field installed options I am considering.

    TBN user grsthegreat, has a loader mounted hydraulic blower, it is run by a rear three point mounted hydraulic power unit (tank and pump on back, run by rear PTO), hoses run up front to the blower.

    He has pics on here somewhere, I've seen them before.
    He can swap from the blower to front bucket in a couple minutes, if I was looking for a front blower, that's what I would be interested in.

    Maybe he will chime in, or you can find the pics.

    Duh, I never thought of a hydraulic motor. What a great idea.

    That would be cool to see, I was thinking more to keep compact and maneuverable if it was on the front 3 point it would be closer to the tractor instead of way out in front like the loader would be.

    I have a kubota L39TBL that doesn't have a mid PTO so I added a rear pump and skid steer snow blower (Loftness 60")(39 has quick release FEL) Works great. Current project is rebuilding an Arians tractor front blower(48") and adding hydraulic motor. about to test frow reate versus rpm etc.

    My rear is 540/540E/1000E because it's multi speed I would have figured the front would be multi speed as well just programmed from the computer like everything else in the tractor.
