    Picked up a couple snowblowers

    Picked these up for $100 for both. The one with the mule drive won’t take much to get working. The one with the hydraulic motor doesn’t seem to be in bad shape either. Would it work off the PTO?

    It would appear that is what it is set up to do. The question is if it will turn up enough rpm. It appears to be a low speed high torque motor.

    I think I would test it out before I started mounting it and putting time into it only to find out it didn't work for someone else.

    From what I can find online it looks like 243 rpm, don’t think that would work

    Maybe if you could reverse the gears on it.😉. Probably be better to just bring it back to stock.

    Probably a good idea. I might get a couple fittings just to see what it does. Might find another use for it on a project I haven’t even thought of yet

    It's similar to a tiller motor, but I don't know how close it's displacement is.
    Always good to have stuff around for projects.

    If you have the time, it would be interesting to see what it does.

    I seem to recall reading on the site that the all-hydraulic tractors (from which that snowblower came) had a larger capacity pump. The standard pumps on a non-all-hydraulic tractor may not have enough capacity to feed the snowblower.

    Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can confirm or refute.

    I believe you are correct about the hydraulics. But if you look at the picture that caster is an older one that has been modified, see the belt routing sticker by the hydraulic motor

    Even if the hydraulic motor would get the caster up to the correct speed, you may be disappointed. It has been said here a number of times that the rear PTO (non AH) only delivers 9-10 usable HP regardless of engine HP. With the 48" caster I often need more HP than I have and need to make half cuts.

    Thanks for all the information and comments. They did a decent job modifying it but I doubt that it worked very well.

    Well I hooked it up and the motor works fine and does what it is supposed to do, just turns about a thousand rpm to slow. Would probably be ok for a tiller or something.
