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 .
