Re: Case snowcaster/snowblower

Yes, and no.

The correct model for a 'RH' tractor (3000 / 4000 series) is the SB38, SB42, or SB48 (width being the only meaningful difference)

Now, that said, there is a conversion kit available for the older model snowblowers. It is admittedly expensive and ends up being a bit of time involved as well.

A good, diligent search for a SB48 is generally the preferred route. Of course, a brand new SB48 could be on your door step in short order ...

Re: Case snowcaster/snowblower

Coobie,
Before you get rushed to the hospital upon hearing the price for a new blower, I want to make sure that you fully understand the following.


All Case and Ingersoll branded tractors that have 3 digit model numbers (224, 226, 444, 446 etc) use snowcasters that begin with a letter such as H, J, K, L etc, followed by either the number 80 or 84.

Ingersoll branded tractors with 4 digit model numbers such as your 4020 must use snowcasters that begin with the letters SB followed by two numbers that indicate the true cutting width.

So, to answer your original question as to whether a snowcaster off a 226 will fit a 4020, the reply is "Yes it will FIT but it won't work properly."

In order to make the earlier snowcasters work correctly on a 4 digit tractor, you must do one of two options. Either buy the outrageously over-priced conversion kit from Ingersoll ( $650.00, if IIRC) and install it or modify the mule drive on the snowcaster yourself. This is all about getting the early snowcaster to spin in the correct direction since the engine in your 4020 faces the opposite way to the engines in the 3 digit models.

So... if you buy the blower from the 226, you better have the tools and skills to cut off brackets and weld them in a different position. If not, then buy a SB-48.

Re: Case snowcaster/snowblower

If he hooks it up and pours cold water down the chute, will it blow snow out of the front?

Re: Case snowcaster/snowblower

So someone is selling a k80-k84 snow thrower he had on his 446, This should work on a 1986 case 226?

Yes, $385 is a reasonable price for a good working machine, that is complete with lift bar, chute crank, good bearings, etc.


That's a lot of snowblower for $385 and they might be a bit hard to come by in your area. You've had a lot of snow lately ... that puts the price up.


I'd be more than happy to have private trades settle on a complete snowcaster at $300 most days.


You'll love it once you have it and fixed up a bit.
