ok iam asking as to learn suffin here.. lil cornfused to ...Todd - sorry I overlooked your last posting with the discussion about the PTO. If you're thinking of using it to thro/blo snow you'd have to get the pretty specific snow thrower made to go with it, that is unless you're good at cobblin' up something. With the correct snow thrower made to go with it (IH Model QA42A) it could be a terrific snow machine.
As for an emergency generator or water pump I'll have to let others advise, but generally I don't see these uses. There was an option for an electrical generator back in the day, but I believe it was pretty small.
its not so much the blower itself. its the frame work that holds it to tractor ? NF we know wont fit a WF.. but the blower itself will work.
