I am thinking about putting a predator and my model 60 but was wondering about the PTO. If I use the predator does the PTO still work and would you say the engine has enough power to still mow and run a blower. What are your guys's opinion
If you look at the old posts in this section there was one nice Predator swap done. It should be back a page or so. The Predator will have enough to mow and move a cart but I have questions about the snow blower. Roger
Well it is basically rated the same HP as the VH60 was so it should. I never thought the 60s and 70s were as good a snow machine as the RFs and 110.112 and 200 series. What kind of weather and snow do you have. I know a 200 will work below zero and in 18 inches of snow but will be slow. If your snows are 2 to 3 inches it might work fine. My MTD walk behind rubber paddle Chinese 173 cc engine has no problem moving 6 inches of snow but is only 20 inches wide. The model 32 blower is 32 inches wide so my answer is still maybe. Roger
