Is a 750 lb agro trend 2072 (6' cutting width) to heavy for the deluxe gas mf35? The mfg web site says min. 30 hp max 40 hp. I don't like to run over unblown snow, it's 5 1/2' to the outside of my rear tires. Thanks for your input!

I have both a T035 and a MF35 and I use a different make of blower that weighs 545 pounds but is 6 feet wide. No problem!

I use a 6' blower on my MF50 which has the same engine and three point capacity as the 35 and it works great. The 50 has a heaver front end than the 35 so your steering may get a bit light with the blower raised.

You might find the front light at times, but it should be workable. Low Reverse is ideal for snow blower on the MF's.

Do NOT travel at road speed with the blower on if the front end is light..you don't have normal steering grip, especially on snow/ice.

I run a 78" on a MF 240

thanks guys, I took my loader off for repairs, my front tires are also loaded. I want to put on a brush guard/bumper and also be able to attach weights to it. I'm thinking 100 lbs weight to balance the load.

When I was near Canada like Dan S is, my 6 foot 3 point farmking blower worked just fine. Now that I am further south and closer to the ocean, the snow falls wet and thick, and the blower is useless as designed, it just pushing the muck along like a mechanized blade.
I find a loader with wide bucket gets me cleaned out fast, then a scraper blade finishes up. Use a blower here, and it would all melt before I could finish job.

seems puma snowblowers are 300 lbs lighter for the 6' wide model. They're made in quebec canada I believe.
