Yanmar Snow Blower Attachments

Yanmar snowblower attachmentsSnow plows and walk-behind snow blowers are fine for small jobs, but if you need to clear a lot of snow quickly, nothing beats a tractor-driven two stage snow blower. Yanmar’s line of rear-mounted attachments are designed for compact and subcompact tractors ranging from 15 to 50 HP. By using your tractor’s PTO to power a wide auger and high capacity fan, they can snow faster than stand-alone blowers with less pass overlapping than plow attachments.

Features

The auger flighting used in these attachments measures just 0.31 x 2 inches. By using narrow helicoil strips instead of a solid auger, the snow blower is lighter and can pick up larger chunks of snow. That snow is fed to a massive four blade fan that turns hardened accumulation into fine powder which is ejected through a chute with an optimized shape that resists clogs.

The fan is driven directly by the gearbox, while a side-mounted chain connects the gearbox to the auger. This keeps the transmission out of the path of the snow, protecting it from damage, yet the housing is only a couple inches wider than their working width. That means you should have no problem getting close to fences, buildings and other obstacles.

The chute has 270 degrees of rotation. It can be coupled to an optional hydraulic or electric rotator, letting you use your tractor’s available hydraulic connections or outlets to adjust snow direction during operation.

The skids can be adjusted to get the right auger height for a variety of surfaces from ice to gravel. They’re also replaceable, increasing the blower’s service life.

Compatibility

These snow blowers connect to the PTO using a Cat 3 driveline. A shear bolt is built into the shaft to protect your PTO if the impeller or fan jams. Depending on the model, the blower can be used with a Cat 1 or 2 three point hitch. All models are ASABE Quick Hitch compatible. This hitch adapter uses automatically locking lower arms, letting you switch tools faster. Don’t have one for your tractor? Yanmar makes an adapter that fits standard three-point hitches.
