Modification Dream

1500 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Loren Holm
I have a 49 snowblower on my 318. I also have a 445 with a quick hitch. I have the urge to modify the 49 to fit the 445 and the quick hitch. My question is does anyone know what is the rpm speed of the front pto of the 445 and what is the rpm speed of the shaft of the 49 with the 318 would be? Are they the same speed? If they would be the same or at least very close, I am thinking of replacing the pully with a PTO .

I modified the model 50 thrower from a 400 to my 445. Used the mount because I dont have a quick hitch. Did the front blade the same way. Have about 300 into converting both with new paint and longer hoses. Very happy with the results. It was nice using the 400 thrower because the driveshaft hooks right up to the 445 pto and is the correct rpm.
