What do you think of this idea
« on: November 05, 2018, 02:16:50 PM »
I have a bobcat 763 up at my cabin.  I have a 3/4 mile dirt road to get in.  I used to have a tractor with a 3point blower, but now I have the skidsteer.  My idea is to get a quick attach plate and attach two 30" snowblowers to it.  They would both be electric start and be complete except for the wheels.  I'd have to rig up the controls but mainly I'm just looking for input on this.  Is it a dumb idea?  I don't have High flow so a hydraulic unit is out of the question. 

Thoughts?

sounds interesting. I would be concerned about durability with a big heavy skidsteer pushing little consumer grade snowblowers. but it would probbaly work ok.
I knew what I thought I meant.

What about a 72" 3pt snow blower with its own gas motor, I know you can get a 3pt hitch adapter.

Well, I may go that route but I'm trying to keep cost down.  I figure on picking up 2 snowblowers cheap at end of season. If I find a cheap 3p0oint blower, I may go that route

I can break a walk behind snowblower by hand. one chunk of ice or a stick in the snow and that little gearbox that runs the spirals is toast.
