V Type Snowblower, Should I Buy ?
[Return to Topics]

I can get a "V" type snowblower for 40$. I
don't know the make. It has the usual impeller with 2 square trap door type openings for ejecting snow on either side.
When one door is opened to eject left, the right door closes, and there isn't a "chute"
It's made of 3/16 plate and has a narrow v
angle which I like. It's about 5.5 to 6Ft wide.
The impeller shaft extends out and the end has
2, 18in propellers to drive the snow rearward into the impeller.
I have a long driveway 180ft, to get from the house to the shop out back and there it's clear
space on either side which is fine. The problem
is in close quarters near the house. I have 2
driveway entrances to the yard and the plows always bury them in. On one side is the house siding and on the other is a country ditch with no neighbours near.
It takes me 2 - 2 1/2 hours with the 8HP craftman to clear everything and it looks like we're getting a return of the deep snow of the seventies.
So it's sure tempting folks. The width of the blower is just right for my 30HP MH although the
cylinder will groan a bit from the weight.
Whadya think?

I Bought it, better work in close quarters!    Posted 06-05-2001 at 17:35:28       [Reply]  [No Email]

$40 , take it, get it fast.

link it up to your tractor when you get home and see how it goes, if its bad then buy a can of spray paint, make it look good and sell it for $400, hey there's a sucker born very min.

Spence- For forty bucks I don't see how you can go wrong. Grab it up, give it a try, get the feel of it, get any maint & repair problems done this summer.

If you don't like it, or it just don't work for you, you should be able to turn it for a tidy profit when the snow comes again. Good luck, IHank
