This doesn't answer your question but, I heard the problem with the 38" on the bigger tractors is the tires will ride over the uncleared snow on each side. Might want to check this out. This could be wrong, just something I heard before, I'm sure others will know better from experience.

That makes sense PowerRed I've always been told it should be as wide or wider than than the vehicle its mounted on for obvious reasons.

You can buy wings/extensions for the smaller caster so you won't run over the snow and Wurkenman is correct that you will need a left hand model as your engine sits in the forward position as all of the pre 90's did.

I don't think a torch & a welder is going to be of much help making 80 series snowcaster wider. Your best bet is to add the wings or find a 84 series blower.
