I agree, I have too much to do with the tractor with the weather being nice and the chains sure chew up my gravel drive areas during this thaw season.

Our plow is still on the boss 6x6 and I didn't even start the blower this winter, not enough to warrant that. We may have been 100" short on average snow this year..... :cry:

Blower and blade are at the side of the garage. Blower drive is still mounted, just in case. With this system I can use the three point for the rear blade and land plane when the road dries up some.

Bought a new 2021 TYM T574 last week and they delivered it today.:) Now I have to decide who's 3pt snowblower I should buy. I am looking at the Martin Meteor, Woodmaxx and Frontier. All thoughts and opinions on 3pt push blowers are welcome.

Thanks,

I have a Frontier and it's a great blower. You will need at least one rear remote if you want a hydraulic chute rotator (pretty much a necessity with a cab tractor)...two rear remotes or a diverter if you also want a hydraulic deflector (these are both available as electric options too, but I have no experience with them). I only have the hydraulic chute rotator right now.
I can't say any about the Woodmaxx snow blowers, but I do have a Woodmaxx chipper...great implement and I expect the snow blowers will be just as great. Plenty of videos on YouTube about Woodmaxx equipment.
Meteor...no personnel experience but look of YouTube for Good Will Tractors for a great video demoing a Meteor pull type snow blower...
Your TYM T574 with 44 PTO HP should be able to handle any 72" snow blower
Heck, I'll save you the trouble with the Meteor pull type blower

Here's my set up

Thank You Roy. I do not think I could ever use a pull type blower here. I get very long and high drifts. I really like the Meteor because of the 5 blade impeller fan. I think it would blow the snow farther and better then a 4 blade fan. JMHO

With your annual snow falls you should look at the Pronovost P720, and the P720TRC; It has a rotating impeller housing that lets the operator discharge the snow directly to the left or right bypassing the chute and spout which eliminates plugging with heavy wet snows.

The picture on the left shows the P720 with the partial chute covering that reduces the amount of snow spray if you are cleaning powder snows.

The picture on the right shows the left discharge side of the TRC model. The shoulder of the right discharge hole is not shown.

Thank You. I have never in my life plugged a chute while blowing snow. We have the rotating impeller housings on the big blowers at the airport. I do not think the added cost and complexity is worth it to me.

Plugged chutes really suck!! I've had that problem a couples times
Just spray the chute, fan, auger and auger housing with Pam or an equivalent anti-stick spray and plugging won't be a problem

I bought a Woodmaxx in November and used it this past season. Worked great and it is a good heavy duty implement. I decided on Woodmaxx because they have an electric motor option for the chute rotation. Otherwise I would have had to add another set of hydraulics to the rear, as those are currently used for the front end plow. Never had a clogged chute and I moved quite a lot of snow this year!

If you do not mind me asking, were you using john deere and wheel horse single stage snow throwers??

How many rear remotes do you have on the tractor?

Are you looking for a front mount or a rear mount? Either type is considered a push type snow blower.

I ask this because you said you were looking for a push snow blower.

Does the new tractor have a mid mount power take off?? if it does you could use the bercomac front mount you have with a mounting kit from bercomac.

I am selling the T330 with the rear 3pt blower and keeping the front blower for my new tractor. I just bought a new Martin Meteor rear 3pt blower that I will put on my new T574.

The North East USA is in trouble now. I washed off waxed and pulled the plow off the tractor and it on its dolly. Pushed it back and tucked it in the garage. We will get another snow for sure now.

I've still got plenty of coal left about 2 1/2 tons,
debating on when to let it go out.

Out here when it snows, it typically drifts a couple feet so it's necessary to have the equipment to move it.

WI' when temps recently hit the 70's and bumped 80, the snowplow came off and rolled to storage, the 4300 got an oil/filter change, and the FEL hooked up.
Usually have to let off some hyd. line pressure to allow connecting, but this year lines slipped together with ease.

Now the forks and the grapple will be put to good use making burn piles to get rid of the accumulation of brush and spruce limbs from pruning.

Hope everyone has a great spring.

Its too damp to let my fire go out and I have been using about 40 pounds a day to keep the stoker going. I have been opening the windows to air out the house and let the excess heat out as needed.

I don't think I will have to worry about excess heat for most of the coming week though.

Eight foot Rhino rear blade at 1050#. No snow pics - it didn't even snow enough that I needed to clear my mile long driveway once.

my poor snowblower has had a hard life. i just have too many dam* rocks at my place. they occasionally find their way into the blower. for the past 10 years its been getting worse and worse. finally this year it ate thru the metal in a few spots. all the steal is very thick on this blower EXCEPT for the fan shroud.

i cut some 8ga stock, put it thru the roller and relined the shroud. this should last a long time as it's nearly 2x as thick. also, the blades are closer, but not touching the new liner, so it should be more efficient. not sure why there was such a large gap. then again...i guess im glad there was so i could fit the liner in.

i just stitch welded it inplace just encase i ever have to replace it again. worse part was pulling the impeller fan. i thought i had a complete set of sockets and impact sockets. but noooooo, this one was a 1-7/16" castle nut. never even knew someone made a 1-7/16 nut. took some looking, but they were able to dust off one at Napa in town. the salesman was surprised that they had it.

I can relate. I just replace the lower seal on my Befco 7' mower gearbox and found a giant 1-5/8" nut holding the lower pulley on. Of all places, Lowes had 3/4 sockets up to 2" and a 3/4 drive to 1/2" adapter.
