/ I did it. Roast and discuss my choice. (sharing experience + numbers for others) #41
I purchased a 4707 in late December, blew a little snow with it (we had very little here in SD this winter). I have a Farm King 960 on it, and its too big for the tractor IMO. Any drift and it pulls the rpm down in a big hurry, and you have to ride the clutch, which is extremely grabby. I'm really unhappy with how grabby the clutch is. It makes loader work and blowing snow very difficult. A creeper gear for blowing snow on a lower HP tractor like this would be ideal.As far as blower, I need to do more research, but I have been looking at the Erskine 925RM. It's 3 point 90inch width, 35inch height, 540pto. I figure something that size will clear my driveway and turnaround in no time.
I am looking for a bush hog as well to help cut the pasture as I am not having any livestock out there this year as I am moving the fence etc to put in trees and build the shop.
