I converted a rear mount, PTO driven, to a front mount hyd motor driven,...using a PTO pump.

...converted a 20 gallon, Well water pressure tank ( yes I removed the rubber bladder) to a hydraulic tank.

works great!

Nice work! I really like your valve/camlock setup!

You're going to love the loader mount blower! :)

Interesting. It looks a little bit underweight, but I bet an enterprising person (like most of us...) could find a way to mount that to a front end loader...
It is much too light and lacks power.

I wish my 6' loader mounted blower was lighter so that it would float a little better.

It looks like a Prince pump (or very similar). I use a 21gpm Prince pump and it is plenty of flow. I don't have the hydraulic motor sizes handy, but with 21gpm I'd swap them out for larger motors to gain torque and slow auger and the fan speed down a bit.

I used a 38hp tractor for years and it was fine. (Although my current 66hp tractor with cab sure is nice in the winter! ;) )

That has to be the most inefficient snow weapon of all time. The tiniest blade combine with an extremely high price tag. For years I rode a $75 mtd that had a manual blade 3x that size, and with chains it really ripped.

Electro hydraulic plow, heated cab, and a dump bed with about 500-lbs of sand in it. it has never slipped. I have a set of chains riding around in the tool bosx that I put on when I bought them to make sure they cleared, and put back in the bag.

I started looking for a UTV to plow with, and saw one of these in a parking lot, and realized, that something with a closed cab, and a heater would be far more comfortable to plow in than a side by side.
