Okay, why is the snowblower mounted on the rear?



Why would you want/need to run a snowblower from a tractor in REVERSE?
Probably a retired farmer who just always had his full sized tractor set up with a rear blower.

No good for me, too old & stiff to see behind me. Would spend all my time grinding up recycle tubs, Wife's flower pots and the mailbox.:hide:

MY 4518

.I've replaced the seat with a full suspension seat
.New tires 4 ply Carlisle All Trail tires on rear
.4ply Carlisle Turf Master on front
.1500 lbs atv winch on the rear
6' boom hoist
Hitch for moving my full size trailers around, winch moves it up and down
Front blade.

Just an observation TH, all that black dash plastic will clean up real nice and return to ......well...... black plastic with one of these.

Learned it from my Wife.:fing02::D

I think there is LITTLE HOPE for the seat...:)
poor girl has be out in the weather to long.

but the back to black .. I have been using for years.. cars/trucks/motorcycles... and as you see in my sig.. my 1992 Honda looks nice... anything black and plastic or rubber... not the best on tires.

Robert, up north we usually use the rear mounted blower with a bucket loader on the front. Makes doing a large drive or farm access road/door yard much easier. But a cab would make the minus 50 wind chill a bit easier to deal with!

Honda Dealer in Belgium

Some of my co-workers here at Honda just returned from a project at a Honda facility in Belgium. Here are a few photos, with neat "Europe only" Honda products, including some schweet riding equipment:

Thanks for the pictures! I really wish we could get some of that stuff over here, like that handheld blower.
That walk behind plow is pretty interesting, I've never known something like that exists. Im assuming the air filter has a snorkel on it since there appears to be a tube running out the side. It has a very large muffler too.
