Snow blower on a WD45 ??

How big of a snowblower could you run on a WD45?
Will it handle a 7 foot, two stage, single auger blower? I am also wondering if reverse is to fast to operate a blower easily. Would appreciate any input, Thanks.

I have a front mount 6 foot 2 stage blower on an Allis WD45. The tractor has plenty of power, but I have a real problem with traction. I live on a hill and run wheel weight and have fluid in the tires. I donot like to run chains on the tractor as I have blacktop. My driveway is 650 feet long and if everything works o.k. I can blow it out in 10 minutes. I have found that I have less trouble blowing 6inches or more than when you only have a few inches. I also have to be careful when I'm next to my buildings so I don't break windows. I can throw snow over 40 feet.

Lots of WD-45's ran snow blowers around here, but you drove with one hand on the clutch ALL the time. It was not an ideal setup. If you were in deep or wet snow, you got used to hearing the engine really bark. If you must use this set-up, I think you may have to put up with a slow first trip, then work sideways so you only are using a partial width of the blower so the tractor can power the snow out of the way even when it's a little too fast.

I've never done it myself, but I have posted the same question before. What I've been told is that the gearing on the early Allis' is too fast to run one. You may be able to find a step-down transmission if you look hard enough and can do the work yourself. In deep, wet snow you will find yourself lifting the implement to clear it a lot of the time. In climates where a lot of snow is the norm, you are better off using a bucket and moving the snow as far as possible. The rear tires when loaded with calcium and with chains and weights keep the power to the ground better than most comparable tractors. All that said, I would like to hear from someone who has bought and used a snow thrower on a WD or 45 and can contradict the information I have recieved. I have used my blade to move up to about 9" of wet snow from our gravel driveway, but would really like to use a snow blower, as the blade takes forever and pushes a lot of gravel. Ask this question on the Unofficial Allis sight and Brian's WD sight to get maximum responses. RC

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
