Adirondack case guy
Being that I'm a cheap SOB, I have been doing some redneck engineering myself this week. I decided that I would like to have a snowblower for my aging Kubota B2150. yep a 60" 3pt unit would work on it and pair up with my FEL.
I have had a nice little IH #10 7x13 well cared for grain drill for sale for a couple of years.
I went to a couple of places, and new ones were around $2K.., and they didn't want my drill in trade. Went to my friendly CaseIH/Kubota dealer, and they had a used front mtd for the same price as a new 3pt., and it would have to be modified for my tractor, and they wanted boot money to trade. One of the owners, long time friends of mine, said follow me. Went down to the storage shen and way up on top of the pallet racks, sat a new/old Kubota branded Befco front blower. Beside it was a wooden box with a whole bunch of new/old mounting kits. Lots of teliscopeing pto shafts, bearing carrier, lift cylinders etc. Only thing that wasn't there was the Befco quick tach male half, but he had one off an older Ford compact.
S-o-0-0, I have been engineering, cutting, welding and painting my brand new/old snowblower drive and mtg. system. The trade price was $ even up. There are two people very happy now, me and my dealer friends, as these parts had been written off as obsolete, and a third will be the new owner o the drill. Win-Win-Win.
