X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

Here are some pics of a X485 with a 48" Northeast 2 stage Berco Snowblower. It has the Berco Quick Tach with Hydraulic lift. 237 Degrees of chute rotation. It also has a 4 blade steel high speed 2nd stage Impeller. It comes with manual chute rotation with the optional of electric. So far it looks like a well built unit. I will give updates as winter progresses. Thanks for looking.

Re: X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

That looks great! It was a tough decision between the 48" Berco and the 54" JD blower I ended up buying.

It looks like the Berco really sticks out from the tractor a bit more than the JD does but pics can be tricky.

I look forward to a review of it in actions, some pics, and hopefully a video if we get planetary alignment!

for sharing the pics with us!

Looks good and it looks like it really sticks out in front. Are you using any rear weights with it? slkpk

Re: X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

I've always wanted to see one of those mounted on an X7!

Do whatever you can to get us some video of it throwing the snow! I've seen the Berco's on other model Deeres and it looks like they can really throw it. I want to see what that X485 can do with that thing.

Can't wait to see and read about your first experiences with it.

Re: X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

When you have a chance will you please post a pic or two of the blower in the full up position? I'm interested in the lift it has. Being that the blower looks to be way out there I'm guessing it lifts quite high.

Re: X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

Looking good Kruzman. We'll be anxiously awaiting your reviews. 200+ inches in the forecast this year should be enough to give that Berco a good initiation into MN winters.

Looks good, I'll bet in MN the new snowblower will get a good work out soon.

Re: X485 with a 48" Berco Snowblower

Congrats, the blower looks great! Do the Berco's cost more or less than JD's 47?
