The 44 inch snowblower is new for 2018, with improved performance, reduced set up time and easier operation.

This snowblower is ideal for home and estate owners in heavy snow regions.

  1. More effective than single-stage snow blowers when operating in wet, heavy snow and deep snow conditions
  1. Faster rotor speed increases the maximum throwing distance by 40%, up to 50 ft.
  1. Simpler installation and removal process reduces initial set up time by 50%
  1. New mounting system produces a 50% smaller storage footprint
  1. Provides consistent snow placement in variable snow conditions because the high speed blower gives the discharged snow consistent velocity, even in very light clean-up volumes
  1. Use of tire chains and weights is highly recommended for proper traction, tire chains and weights are sold separately

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A useless attachment, waist of money, huge disappointment I was glad to have this Snow Blower attached to my D155 tractor right before we had over 1 foot of snow in Wyoming. But it turned out to be a nightmare. The D155 tractor with this blower could not plow snow on a leveled gravel surface, on a slight incline or going downhill! The tractor cannot push this blower through the snow - the wheels are spinning (yes, with the chains on). The front wheels are too small to efficiently maneuver, so you are constantly sliding into the snow. When I pushed the tractor harder - the main drive belt came off (and, boy, it's a hassle to put it back on). The snow gets stuck inside the snowplow, clogs everything, and not only you can't lift the blower with the attached handle, you can't even manually fix it in a lifted position (I had to stick a screw driver). All-in-all, I spent 2/3 of my time digging out the tractor, adjusting chains, repairing it. I was much more efficient with my Troy-Bilt walk behind blower. DO NOT waist your time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This throws snow 20 feet. I have had it 5 years now. I had to buy new Long drive belt first year.... This throws snow 20 feet. I have had it 5 years now. I had to buy new Long drive belt first year. Dealer does not carry them. Had to purchase one from auto parts store so did not have to wait to ship one. Since day one I had problem with engagement cable coming off arm. My fix use zip tie to hold in hole ever year when installing back on tractor. Had problem with frame being to light. Sides bent when hitting uneven spots in drive way and sidewalks and entrance to streets. Fix! Welded heavier angle iron to sides.. After each time blowing I had to clear snow that blew on the shoot to keep it from freezing and not able to work after sitting. after 5 years I had bracket break that holds controls by steering wheel I had to weld it up and add heaver steel. But all said I'm still happy with the amount of snow it moves in a very short time. I would buy it again but fix the problem spots before starting to use it. I clear 5 homes each time it snows and I have even cleared my street in front of property. Neighbors love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Bought slightly used 6 years ago. Put it on a LA 135 Was a learning curve to get the most out of it cost me a couple belts and shear pins Added bag of salt for extra weight. Just did 4 large family driveways because wet snow was to heavy to shovel. Lever is bit heavy lol like 1 shovel of snow. With a bit of common sense this is a great product.

Will this fit my John Deere L111 lawn tractor? 

Asked by: Mdil
I don’t know.  I had it on my E180.  It’s almost impossible to get it to lift up and down with the manual arm they provide which bends instead of moving the blower up and down.  Use a plow.  That’s my advice.

What come whit the snowblower. Does all the subframe attachement include. Can you ad a picture of the parts included?

Asked by: GErald
there is 3 main pieces in the crate when you order for "D" or "E" series 100. the rear section that includes the pulleys and belt, the front section that mounts over the front wheels onto the frame and support the snow blower, then you have the snowblower it self. Dont reck your brains if you need more then the 2 hours time frame they say on some comments because it took me more then that I think just to uncrate the kit and aboiut 4 hours to install the first time, but when come time to reinstall it the next year it take about an hour to do because all the little pieces stay together when you take it off in spring, make sure you order extra shear bolts for the auger. Also you need the chain kit and Weights (only one per kit so order 2), and the wiegth bracket. It become expensive but it's all worthed, I love it, it's a man's toy.

is there an electrical lift kit that will work on 2019 john deere e130 tractor and 2018 snowblower attachment?

Asked by: halb
Don't buy this product!!!! It is too heavy on the front of even a bigger tracter (E160), even with the weights. Had chains also and all it did was get stuck and spin one wheel in moderate wet snow. For the lift, not that I saw a kit. The lift was hard to use and you need lots of strength to squeeze handle to release. This may work if you get light snow on an otherwise clean concrete driveway, where both tires touch the concrete, and you weigh 2225 to 250 + pounds and are very strong.
Answered by: Glad to get a refund

Will this blower work with a L130 lawn tractor?

Asked by: Trent
I know it works on "D" and "E" series 100 from 110 to 180 but I'm not sure about "L" serie, I have it on a D125 and it's the best investement I did in years, only thing is shear bolts are rather sensitive, I went through abut 5 shear bolts in 1 winter, and that model comes with that long arm to lift the snowblower wich is a little heavy mainly if you have a bad shoulder.
