Default LX277 aws Snowblower

Toying with the idea of getting one for my unit. Wondering:
1. Is the lx277 aws heavy-duty enough, or should i look into getting a dedicated machine?
2. I can get a 38" snowblower that was on a lx188. Would this transfer over to an lx277 aws?

Thank you for any help.

I just know the 42 will work on a 277 AWS
The 38 might , but I bet there are kits needed.

My 3252 42" snowblower that fits my JD345 came off a LX277. 42" will fit, belt driven.

Only difference is you need a different lift kit for the LX277 then the lift kit I have on my Jd 345 because the 345 is hydraulic and the Lx 277 has manual lift.

Don't really think I would go with a 38" because you will be running over snow that you missed with the blower because of the width of your tractor.

Well the 38 came off a LX188 which I bet is the same as a 277, BUT was the LX188 too wide too. ??
I think the 38 was factory for the LX series and the 42 optional.

38inch was standard for the LX100 series The 42inch single was Optional for the LX100 series after the LX200 series came out Deere stopped Production of the 38inch for the 42inch so the 42inch was backwards compatible But the 38inch will also fit On the LX200 series with the right Parts

I ended up buying the 38 snowblower. It came with the mounting hardware and it fit my 277 perfectly. Ended up paying $350 for the blower with tire chains. I didn't think at was bad deal.

So, if anyone with a lx277 aws is wondering if the 38 snowblower will fit...it does.

We want pics!
I had a 38" snowblower on my GT275 and worked great. Never had a problem with it. If this is your 1st tractor mounted blower, you're going to have fun this winter. I still have fun using mine.
