That looks like a nice heavy duty snowblower but I'm not sure I would like running a rear mounted one, but I can see where the front end loader would come in handy if you had packed snow you need to move. Any way you could mount some mirrors on the tractor?

Can't tell from your photos, is the tractor 4 wheel drive?

Good point the rear mounted ones are tough on the neck.

The rear blower is half as much as the front and other than a sore neck it is better for traction ans maneuvering. Or so I’m told.

I can see that. Both the blowers I had at work were front mounts and you had to make pretty gradual turns or the front wheels would start sliding. Both tractors were 2 wheel drive, a 4 wheel drive would probably do better.

I'm not as flexible as I used to be and can't imagine doing a lot of snowblowing twisted around in the seat, that why I was thinking it would be helpful if you had some mirrors on the tractor.

The tractor also needs a cup holder.

Nice tractor Gene. It should do a lot of work for you.
I'm glad you didn't hit your head on the ROPS.

Send some pictures when you are working it.
