what is the experience between the 50 inch and 51 inch blowers, for $1000 extra is 51 inch that much better? Have 400+ feet of paved driveway and running out of space to put snow with loader.

Are you talking about 50" vs 61"? I can't imagine there's really a 50 and a 51. I'd make sure the thrower is at least a few inches bigger than outside width of your rear wheels.

There is a 50" light duty (good for home use)

51" industrial (heavy gearbox and steel)

63" same as 51" just wider.

I had the 51" and traded to the 63"

Reason; running a 60" rear blade would make a mess as in deep snow the blade would stick out 4.5" per side/cut compared to the 51" cleared width.

Tractor handles the 63" no issues.

I am using a B 2781 A blower on my 2620 and really love the way it cuts thru everything. I had a B2200 with the cheaper 50" blower and while it was effective it was on the light side and did not have the same quality of skid shoes, auger, cutting edge, and fan that the 2781 has. The 2781 is, in my opinion, well worth the extra $$. One thing you will note is that the drive shaft is not centered on the unit which looks different but works extremely well. I know this is the kiss of death but usually by this time on the old blower I would have gone thru a few shear bolts by now.....on the 2781 I have not sheared anything YET! Guess I better be ready to change a few bolts during the next storm.

I will second that!

6 seasons of residential snow removal (50drives per snowfall) and only 1 broken shear bolt (auger)

Have not replaced the fan shear bolt yet!

We'll worth the extra $$ IMHO
