Made in Canada

onDecember 7, 2009
I bought this unit because you don't need a wide 48 inch blower to clear the front wheels, plus the lighter it is in the front, less weight you need in the back, and easer on those little front tires. this blower does not have a worm gear to wear out and break, it has a side chain just like the blowers on the back of larger tractors, I operate one at work for 25 years, so I have experience. I took my time installing the blower about six hours, the instructions were well done no problems with the install, you do have to take the mower off, be carful of the wiring for the winch, that it's clear of the muffler and hood.
My tractor is the 22hp craftsman, the blower fit well,you will need chains and the weights on the back or you will get tire spin,I have used it once in 6 inches of wet snow and it throws the snow were you want it.The winch is fast, I found that on a gravel driveway you might need to put the shoes down all the way till the ground gets frozen, the 22hp engine has lots of power for this blower.I am very happy with this Canadian made blower attachment.
Pros: Compatible, Durable, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: can't get chains and weights in store.
