Snowblower on H?

After all the snow we've had this year, I'm trying to put together a better arsenal to handle it next year. What I'm wondering is has anyone in this group ever mounted one of the large ag snowblowers on the back of an H? I've got a 3 point on the back, with just the standard lift-all hydraulics. The only real problem I can see is the fact the H doesn't have a live pto, and that might cause a problem if you push in the clutch to slow down in heavy drifts. If anyone has done this before I'd appreciate hearing from you as to how it worked, and what size blower you used and if front weights were necessary. E-mail replies are welcome. Thanks, Dave

A 3 pt. hitch snowblower wide enough to clear the wheel tracks of an H would require at least twice the hp. an H can offer, also a creeper reverse gear and live or ind. pto is almost a necessity to do much with a rear mount blower. I had a 6' rear mount blower, it took a 50 hp.tractor to run it and sometimes could haveused more. Years ago I owned a nfe H with a front blade setup, with loaded tires and a good set of chains it worked fairly well.

sounds like these guys want to blow it all right now is ther a big hurry to do it in 5min or less the 48in or so for these little lawn mowers dont have a 100hp and they blow snow all the time it would work lots of guys with live power like to burn out the clutches my friend makes good money replacing them

We run our blower on a CIH 7220, a bit overkill, but you need at least 85hp for ours. It is 6ft wide I believe. From my experience I would think that you should look for a different tractor to put it on. Having a cab is really nice because no matter what direction you point the spout the snow will blow back at you. You also want a tractor that will allow you to keep the blower going strong after you push in the clutch, you do a lot of creeping when blowing snow, so yes, live PTO is a must. I would think an H would be way short of power needed for the size of blower you are thinking of. You would be better off putting a loader on that tractor instead of a blower. When we get snows we run both a snowblower and a loader tractor at the same time to clear out our driveways and yards, both have their strong points. You can't use a blower around buildings very safely, so that is where the loader works well. Down the lane is where the blower shines, just put the tractor in reverse and you are done. Much easier than scooping with a loader.

I seen a snow blower for pickup trucks advertised in the Northern Tool catalog. It mounts on the trucks snow plow frame and has it's own motor. The cost is very high. They also sell self powered snow blowers for the large loaders used in construction.

it is a little short of HP.to handle more than a couple inches of snow.

I have been thinking the same thing for my super C but figured that without live power it wouldn't work very well. The reverse gear with full RPMs is just to fast.

Live PTO does seem critical to the application. More importantly, a previous poster pointed out most of the current big 3 point snow blowers require 100 + horsepower! good luck
