Am I correct in the fact that the snow blowers are different from the blowers for the 1886's and the bigger HT series? I would certainly want a 2 stage if one can be had. If however the single stages are easily found I could use one of them. I don't have a lot of area to do and right now I am using my 1886(repowered with a 24 HP Honda and a single stage.
Deerelope I havent been on here in a while. The two stage blower is the same blower used on the Duratrac series, GT series and troy bilt GTX series.This is the blower made by Rad Technologies. Kubota garden tractors use this blower now. Craftsman also used this blower in a belt driver format. I will try to upload some pics for you.
Side note the Two stage blower for an 1886 would possibly spin in the opposite direction as the DGT1700. The Non-diesel models the enginges face the opposite way as the Large Frames.
