Modification Dream

1503 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 .

The Quick Attach 46 blower for the 318 is driven at 2000 RPM. An add on pulley is installed in front of the main drive pulley on the engine. 34 inch 5L belt down to the PTO stub shaft.

I just installed a 46 blower from a 430 on a 318 without any problems. Have two 318s with quick hitch blades and blowers Fine snow moving machines.
