I wonder how the blower is driven. It looks like a long trip for a belt drive.

I didn't know you could do that, either.

That has to be a local shop kind of setup.

OK, this is a Snapper offering from the 80's. I bought one new back then. That thing will blow snow. I had to add an idler pulley under the deck replacement conversion to keep the belt from turning. It uses the belt for the mower deck and has another belt where the blade would be with a mule drive to turn the blower. I also added a shield on the one side of the spout to keep from being blasted by the snow being expelled. The switching between the blower and the deck was a pain. If you had a dedicated machine it would be OK. I actually contemplated looking for this setup. If I could buy one like this for 500 or less I would have considered it. Turning around is the tough part as you need to cut out a large enough area for that or back out. I traded it on a mower after I got a walk behind blower. That thing will blow snow over an 8 foot fence when right next to the fence.
