Custom mount 59" Snowblower on a John Deere 4320
cool. would like to see some pics of it in use or a video if you get the chance.
That thing looks great.
I'll see if I can get someone to take photos, or a video clip. This thing will throw some snow, it's 40 HP to the PTO. What use to take me an hour now takes 5 minutes.
This is a John Deere Blower that wasn't meant for this tractor. The tractor is 4" higher and 1 3/4" wider than the unit is was meant for, so my brother and I modified the mounting, and I had a two piece PTO shaft with a center support bearing made, as the tractor is longer also. It took us about a week of oncoming obstacles to make it work.
I love that size JD, do you have a loader or any other attachments? How many accounts do you have for that machine?
Bought this machine to used on my property, have 47 ac. Have an HLA Rock Bucket, great for sorting out large stones from soil and bank run gravel, and for grading and leveling same. Have a 400x Loader, quick hitch, ballast box, and receiver hitch for moving trailers. I have built a 40'x40' garage, 700' of road and planning on building a house on it next year. Have enclosed pictures of garage, road, loader, and rock bucket. Pictures of the rock bucket were not taken on my property. The 4320 is a perfect size for my use, also have a John Deere 310D with clam bucket and extend a hoe.
Awesome! 47 ac is quite a property, lots of work I'm sure. Our 9 acres is alot just for the grass.
I have a JD snowblower like that at my job for a 3720 JD with cab. I believe the skid shoes came mounted to the inside of the snowblower as you have them, but we moved the skids/shoes to the outside of the blower (typically they are on most snowblowers) to prevent them from doing potential damage to the blower if one happened to fall off and go through it. They have fallen off a few times because the operator(s) not paying attention of wear or being too rough on attachment. Although, it's used quite often on a college campus, not just one driveway now and then. Just thought I'd share that info but it's your machine and I'm sure you are careful with it while in operation.
