Snowblower on a 1863 ?'s


BOOMER LANDT

Recommended Posts

Was kicking around the idea of getting a snowblower for the 1863 I got last year .

  1. What model # do I look for that will fit ?
  2. Is there just one model ?
  3. Does the 1863 work well for it ?
  4. Are they hyd. lift ?
  5. What areas does a guy look at when I do find one?

Thanks , Boomer

Hi boomer.

I believe the model you need is a model 451 blower. Just make sure gearboxes are good and the blower housing does not have too much rock/ gravel damage. Hyd lift will depend on if your mower has it for the deck now. If not you will definitely need spring assist

Thanks for the quick info B) .

I found a couple 451's but what's the "normal" price ? I know this time of year isn't the best but $1,000-1,600 :o .

I gave $1,800 for the whole 1863 (1 owner & still had the original yellow painted mower blades) so it's a shocker .

Did find a 1864 , mower , blower , chains/weights & rear carry-all at local dealer for $1,500 but they were closed today . Might have to check that out Wednesday ;) .
