Ok I have a Question for those that know. In the Video I lower and raise the blower with the factory lift, there are 2 assist springs where they should be and both have tension on them when the blower is fully UP.

Does it appear to work as it should lifting?
Is it too slow?

I guess that's 2 questions.
Thanks

Looks good Doug !

Seems to lift / lower at about the same speed as my E15 does.....as for the springs - mine appear to have very little tension when the blower is fully raised.

Hope that helps....

Thanks Steve this is all new to me.
Looking at picture/video and reading about it is NOT the same as actually doing it.

Well we finally got some, about 4" of packing snow, good for making snowballs, this is the most we have gotten all season.
I tried out the tractor and blower, just enough for it to work and get an idea how it performs. Ran the tractor in D1 or 3rd gear to feed the snow fast enough in it so it would work.
Video shows what it does.

Sounds like you are running a ICE motor in the tractor!
