I got this nice 3pt snowblower the other day.


Works good but I don't like backing up. The good news is its reversible... The bad news is to do that you have to swap the pto shaft around to the other side. The shear bolt yoke is rusted on there pretty good. Broke 2 harbor freight pullers on it already. Any ideas?

I'd love to just have another half of that shear bolt plate and I'd just leave this one and install the other on the other side- en if I want to reverse it again I just have a couple of bolts to remove.

When you say "reversible" how is that?
Do you put the hitch on the other side of it and pull it?

It would be nice if you could figure out a way to mount it on the front of the tractor and mount a PTO adapter to run a shaft underneath the tractor to power the blower. Just an idea.

Please explain. Reversible? The rotor? The machine?
How can you not run that thing backing up?

Makes sense if you look at it. The 3pt mount unbolts, swaps to the other side. As does the pto shaft if I could get it off.

OK, that makes more sense. To answer your question,
you will need a puller about 3 times the size of the
one that you are showing. That shaft looks like it
might be about 1-1/4", all rusted together. As
stated before, a torch will be a requirement on this
job.

Torch.

And a new bearing, that one is close enough to not survive....

Years ago we changed an eight foot rotary from rear mount AC WD to a front mount IH 400. We mounted the snow blower on the DUAL loader and ran a shaft to the rear of tractor. Mounted a home made plate on rear of 400. Put a bearing and gear and then another gear on pto with speedchain. Worked good except 400 had narrow front wheels--bad deal.

How well do those V snowblowers work compared to dual auger snowblowers? Do they handle wet heavy snow pretty well or do they plug more easily?

Looking at the picture of the working side of the blower I am not
sure if both of the breaker bars are in place along the shaft to the
blower proper. You really need those breakers to be there for the
snow to feed smoothly into the blower.
I have two blowers like yours and pulling them sure beats backing
up. You also have more and probably slower gears.
Good luck with yours.

If it was mine, I'd leave the slip plate there, and make a new one for
the other side. Measure the shaft, and order a bushing that fits,
drill a hole in the bushing for the retainer pin, and weld a plate to
the bushing, then machine the plate, and drill the shear bolt holes.
When you put it all together, use Never-Sieze, and you'll always be
able to remove it!

McMaster -Carr is a good place to order the bushing stock!

I like this idea but I don't have any way to machine something like that. I've got a small drill press so I could make the holes if I had something close enough that would fit over the shaft.

I'd check about using a WeldOn hub to fit the shaft, and a sprocket large enough to fit your needed bolt circle. You could carefully measure for the bolt holes and drill them on your drill press. No machining necessary. Those hubs and sprockets are in every farm store, and pretty cheap.

Can't seem to find any hubs with a 1-3/4 bore but I found this thing.

I'll have to go measure everything again to be sure but that might be exactly what I need.
