I know for sure that something like that wouldn't be for me. My neck would act up something terrible. I'am sure its a usefull attachment to have,can do lots of work with something like that.Looks pretty neat too.

Those scoops are handy for moving materiel from piles as well. I had one something like that on a JDX475. I called it my poor mans loader. I moved several tandem truck loads of gravel and garden soil with that scoop. You might want to get some weight on the front if you want to use it to move dirt etc. The front end can get light especially when backing down an incline with a load in the scoop.

That is such a neat attachment, and would be handy to have around.
I'll trade ya for a blade. :smilewink:
Aaaaaah, NO! I want a blade in ADDITION to the Scoop Tote. I might trade a Vintage Sears snowblower that has been modified to fit the 1650 (works great just don't have enough snow to merit).

Agree on the front weight, I've experienced that.

Ummm, how about I send you some snow, along with the blade.

Enough snow, that you'll need the blower, and have no use for the scoop. :D

Am I getting anywhere? :deadhorse:

If one of you gets real serious about making one just let me know what measurements you need and I'll try to get them for you.

I was thinking I could put this in a drawing. Then if someone wanted to build one, it would be easy for them to do.

Today's go at it. It does a really good job if you think things through. As far as the neck ache goes, the armrests seem to help this dramatically. Also, the spinner knob on the steering wheel really pays off. Much better than being covered with snow from the blower when the wind shifts.

I will try this by description.

Bucket width 42"
Bucket Height at back 10"
Bucket Depth 17"
Taper at front of Bucket 4"
Lip overhanging top of Bucket 2"

Clearance of frame around Bucket at back 1" (so it can tip)
Clearance of frame around Bucket at side 1/8"

On frame spread of 3 point bottom links there is a width between of 18"
From frame to top link is 20"
The hinge point on the Bucket is 5 1/2" from the back of Bucket and 2" from bottom.

Hope this help you guys.

Oh yeah there is a 2" strap going around the bottom of the Bucket lip to reinforce it.
