Brandon K. With using the ported hydro as a source to power your snowthrower's hydraulic motor.... I'd say, "No." You'd be using the charge pump for something it isn't intended to do. It isn't strong enough for such continuous operation. You'd need a dedicated hydraulic pump with a bigger reservoir to run the hydraulic motor on the pump. I'd suggest finding a good used two stage Craftsman snow blower and mount it on your Cub Cadet.


Life is like a treasure chest. It's contents' value is only worth as much as what you're willing to put into that treasure chest. If you go around with negativity and a frown then that treasure chest will never hold much value. But, if you smile in hard times, help others when they're down, and believe that there is something beyond this simple life on earth... THEN imagine how priceless that treasure chest has become.

Thanks Gary. I have a full metal shop at work that I can cut, shear, roll just about anything. And if been thinking of making a dual stage QA-42. Even toyed with idea making the thrower hydraulic driven off the hydro of the trans cause mine is ported.

Brandon - what are your steel fabrication capabilities, tools, etc.? I have a pretty complete home fab shop (plasma, mig, tig, chop saw, acetylene, BMFH's etc.) and I wouldn't even consider scratch building the housing for a QA-42 unless there were absolutely none available on the market. Buy a couple now, restore 'em and set 'em aside - you'll have enough for the next 20-30 years..
If you are determined, the first thing is to find a supplier to roll the steel - you give them the dimensions, they'll give you a basic rolled piece - I'd do it in at least .125 steel..

By the way, welcome to the forum - I'm down the state a little ways from you, but hang around "Lumber Town" quite a bit these days..

I have a used one and that's what I'm running now for this season. Not into buying another just so it can be rebuilt in another 5-8 years only to have the parts really hard to come by then. If all else fails I'll toss the blade on her. But would rather build one myself.

Buy a used one and save a lot of time there are lots of them out there

Has anyone ever made a QA-42 housing from scratch? Mine is getting thin and would like to make one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
