JD 400 buying option

Unfortunately my grandfather has just passed away. I have the option to buy his JD 400 from my grandmother, which I am sure i can get for a great price. My grandfather completely restored this tractor to perfect condition, and added a new motor. The tractor is setup with a plow and a hard top cab. I want the tractor to be setup with a snowblower. I am pretty handy, but I want to make sure I can get a snowblower for this model before I purchase it. I would like to setup the snowblower with electric switches to avoid having to turn a crank to switch the chute direction. Does anyone know what my options are?

if you look up member maineiacmoose he might have a 50 blower he is willing to sell. the 50 blower for a 400 is all hydraulic. I did just recently earn there was a retrofit kit offered when the 47 blower came out to mount it on a 400. they are huge and require alot of ballast. if you don't get much of the coastal wet snow it might be more hassle then its worth, plus they sell for alot more the 50 blowers, even though the 47's are slightly more plentiful.
