There is no such thing. You should have bought a Grasshopper if you wanted attachments. Exmark only offers a snow blade. no blower.

I have not heard of that brand. I do not think you will see them making any more of those. Exmark is supposed to be stopping production of the Frontrunner. No Frontrunners = no need for more attachments to be produced.

front runners are still going to be made. dealer was on the phone with rep today. Bercomark? is a sub manufacture, they make the snow blower for the navigater and they make snow blowers for atvs as well. Gravely has snow blowers for thier ztr but another company make them, rudd i believe.

Several dealers have been told the Frontrunner is going away due to low sales. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

dealer was in nebraska and got a look at the new z's and was assured then and today they will not be going away. there was a big demand for them this year which is why bercomark is suppose to make more snowblowers. Guys up here in snow county are getting sick of jd tractor mowers and not everyone has a grass hopper dealer around, plus thier snow blowers are 60'' wide way too big for side walks.

my dealer will be talking to exmark rep tommorow, I will have him ask and see if they are being made or available by another company. Good point about the broom, i thought they were still listed on thier website.

I don't know if you are still looking for a snow blower for your FrontRunner, but I have one along with a Curtis Cab with lights and wiper I'm looking to sell, I only used it last winter for a limited number of residential driveways. I am looking for a rotary broom for my FrontRunner, if anybody knows where I can get one, I'd be very grateful.

how much are you looking to get for it? I am sure you know you would have to ship it. How well did it work?

I bought this last fall an paid $2700 for the snow blower plus an additional $440 for the sub frame and another $190 for the tire chains, I also have a Cab with class windshield, wiper, lights, and soft sides I paid $1500 for bringing the total to $4830+tax. If someone where interested in the whole package, I'd let it all go for $3400 and I'd cover half of the shipping.

If interested in just the snow blower with the sub frame, I'd let it go $2200 and I'd cover half the shipping.

The setup worked pretty well, I had driveways done within 5 minutes, the only issues I ran into which were resolved. The issues I encountered were primarily temperature related such as the electric motor for the shoute control froze up on me a couple of times, I just insulated it with an old sock and the issue was taken care of. Another issue I encountered was having to leave the machine idle on the trailer in between jobs since the lights and wiper really drain the battery.

There is a company here in mn making them. they are going for 2500 complete. Which engine do you have? I always leave mine run on the trailer. its too hard on them starting them every few mins. We did 90 drives last winter with 2 deeres.

Are you saying $2500 for the blower, sub-frame, cab, lights, and chains, or $2500 for a broom setup? What's the company name and contact info?

I have a Kohler 27hp engine, did you do 90 driveways using only the Front Runner?, how long where you out each time? BTW, it was often more than 30 degrees below zero last year up here.

2500 for the sub frame, blower and wiring. i don't know if they are making brooms. i don't know the companys name but they are in willmar mn and make products for skid loaders. I did 90 drives with 2 john deere tractor mowers, no front runner. i am trying to get away from using tractors but it does not look to good.
