Ahh, the kiss of death. I bought a used 47" snow blower for my X495. Everything worked out great and the seller was really responsive, no complaints there. BUT the "equipment shaft" that came on the blower is about 10" too short. Frankly it looks like the shaft was designed for use with the blower and the tractor without the quick hitch. The shaft that I think I need looks similar to BM25772 but I am not sure. The shaft should be about 16" long with possible telescoping to fit up to the long shaft from the PTO. If the shaft goes directly from the blower to the long shaft then it has a differential knuckle at one end, is telescoping, and has a female quick disconnect at the other that hooks up to the male end of the PTO long shaft. If the shaft is just a stub shaft then it would have a male end and a female QD at the PTO shaft. Does anyone have any ideas of the part?
