It is currently listed on their website as an attachment (you may have to download the brochure), I believe the part number is 5901141 although when searching for a manual or user guide nothing comes up. It looks like it would be a pretty nice unit to make quick work of snow removal...

If not, how does one access the nuts behind the red panel to complete the installation? Lastly how is the traction when snowblowing? I know what the traction is like on a slippery surface with my Toro Grandstand (twin hydraulic motors, 20x10-8 turf tires), the wheels spin very easily (spring conditions, soft (rain-soaked) lawn with the slightest gravitational disadvantage) I would not attempt to use a snow blade to push snow (that seems to be asking too much)...since the snowblower does the work, is there enough traction to get the auger to the snow constantly ? Thank you for your time.
It's belt drive from the blade pto. The blower mounts to a hitch, so you mount the hitch first.I
would either use chains or change the tires to snow hog tires.

It would be interesting to see how the ferris and the snow blower perform. I for one cannot find a single shred of evidence on how they perform anywhere on the internet. Nor is there any video evidence of said performance. I'd be extremely weary of that setup. You want a real machine with a variety of attachments and proven performance? Check these out.
