  3. Tall chute conversion

    10-4. I was thinking that the retainers will eventually wear being the softer material of the two contact surfaces for the chute to base connection. Thanks for the advice.
  4. Tall chute conversion

    Yes I noticed there was too much play at the connection. I can't imagine wearing through a set of retainers in a season but will definitely see how they look in the spring. I will keep the old ones as backups for now.
  5. Found a parts blower for short money to convert my short chute that I reconditioned last year into a tall chute. Very easy to change over. I ordered a new chute gear ring and retainers as there was too much play in the chute to rotate smoothly. Also got a set of wheel weights with the deal, 50# a piece.
  6. 300 Series tow hitch capacity

    Thanks all as always I appreciate and respect all of your replys.
  7. Ready for snow, one issue, help?

    You are right on point BMS. I definitely know what you are saying and respect everyone's reply's to my topic. I will be using this on my paved driveway so there will not be much cause for the hitch to bounce. We will see how it goes and hopefully I won't be needing help on repairs in January!
  8. 300 Series tow hitch capacity

    Def hear what you are saying but I stood on the end of the rack(200lbs) and bounced up and down with no negative impact to hitch or tractor. I haven't tried it without the blower on but won't use it without. The tractor has the adjustable height knob for lift/down so the blower def puts most of its weight on the ground. We will see once the snow flies. There is a slight difference in ease of steering with the rack but not real easy to turn.
  9. Ready for snow, one issue, help?

    Thanks guys for all the feedback. I have had yard trailers and a trailer with a leaf sucker(5hp motor and exhaust blower with frame) mounted to the trailer tongue. I have stood on the hitch with and without trailers and never had any issues with the hitch. I am 200+ lbs. I know I have had this type of load on the hitch before with no issues. Maybe I am just lucky but I nor my dad who's the owner of this gem thinks something bad will happen with this setup.
  10. Could not find any specs from wheel horse. I am wondering if anyone knows the capacity of the rear hitch on a 300 series. I made a weight rack for snow blowing that bolts to the standard tow bar. How much weight is an issue before damage to trans-axle case?

    Is your weight box just attached to the tow hitch or in some other way? A pic would be great. Thanks
  12. Ready for snow, one issue, help?

    The rack that I made only goes bout 1/4" under the hitch pin. Are you saying that the stop tab on the hitch itself is going to be a problem?
  13. Ready for snow, one issue, help?

    I see what you guys are saying but doesn't the factor hitch rest on the bottom of the case? Also what you cant see in the pictures is the rack is bolted to the hitch as well. I know that doesn't alleviate all the pressure on the case but definitely helps. Where the pin that hold the hitch on the case is solid cast iron anyway, no?
  14. Ready for snow, one issue, help?

    Thanks for the input diamond. I am not concerned with the 150 lbs attached to the rear hitch. I have had more tongue weight towing a trailer with this tractor. Isn't that what a hitch is meant for?
