X Series Snowblower fitment

I just purchased a X728 that came with a snow plow. I would like to also get a 2-stage snowblower. Ideally, I would buy another unit with the snowblower and re-sell w/o snowblower. What models cross over? Is there a different set up 4WD vs. 2WD?

Thanks.

Re: X Series Snowblower fitment

I believe every X from the X465 to the X758 can be outfitted with the Model 47 blower along with the 4X5 series. You are right, the 4 wheel drive models have a different set of drive shafts than the 2WD models do, the quick hitches are the same, but the hydraulic hoses are different on the 4X5 series.

All Quick-Tatch Model M0147X and M047SBX will fit from 332, 4x5, X4, X5, X7
Above Model numbers must be on the serial tag. 2 Stage 47 blowers with black plastic chutes are not compatible.

Caveat being Quick Hitch/Tatch, driveshaft and upstop. Noted in this discussion link. Since you already have the Quick Hitch, only caveat is the snowblower driveshaft, PTO driveshaft doesn't matter.

Model 47 or Model 54 I believe are the same attachment. Correct about 2wd -vs- 4wd. Shaft on a 2wd goes from the rear axle to in front of front axle with a mounting bracket. Shaft on a 4wd goes from the rear axle to the rear of front axle. There’s a stub shaft male-male through the front axle. The male shaft on either then allows for the female quick coupler from the blower drive shaft to mate to it. I too believe the quick hitches to be the same for the X7xx’s. I don’t have any experience with the 4X5 series.

Re: X Series Snowblower fitment

I was just comparing my 2 54" blowers, one from my 455 and the other from my X748, I was wondering whether they would cross work without any changes. The stub shafts coming off the blowers look identical, except the 4x5 ones is 6' long, and the X's is 8"s. I assume at this point either would work on either tractor unless someone knows otherwise... ?
