If there's room on the snowblower frame, you could make a 4:1 reduction unit..
input(from MidPTO has 2" sprocket, layshaft has 4" and 2" then output has 4".
from MPTO---2 4----- to blower
both input and output shafts are 'inline'.
the 64K$ question is does it spin the correct way !
My MF blower runs at 2000, it has a reducer build into it, that cuts it back to 1000. Also I saw a Kubota blower set up, that ran off the front.
The snowblowers that you are looking at that requires 540rpm are most likely rear mounted blowers, not front mounted. Your choices for front mounted are going to be very limited to mainly the Kubota one, unless you do some adaptations to make it fit. Does your tractor have the mid mount PTO already on it?
Have you heard anyone mounting a front mount to the rear of an L2501? I realize the fan and auger are going CCW when you hook up the pto so I am wondering if anyone has got around that issue.Another factor to consider is the fan rotation direction. When looking at the auger, 3pt mounted and my small MF front mounted, have clock wise fans. Most front mounted seem to be C.C.W.
No I have not. But I don't know why you would, when it is so easy to just get a 3 Pt mount blower. Even if you have a front mount blower, it would be easier to sell it and get a 3pt mount.Have you heard anyone mounting a front mount to the rear of an L2501?
