ATV Homemade Snowblower

Written By: Snow Blowing Man - Feb• 19•13

Took a 42″ two stage snow thrower attachment for a ford LGT garden tractor and cut-butchered-welded it up to fit the front of my ATV. So far did a test run in heavy wet snow It works, drives, pushes, better then I thought it would. Thing is built like a tank And way cheaper then them nice new shiny 00 – 00 ATV blowers. I’ll post more vids when its painted up and blowing 1-2 feet of snow. thnks4looking D~

    the builder had as much fun building the unit as he does running it! Sure glad if snowed so he could check out operation. Hope that exhaust tube rotates another 20 degress aft. Good work Yankee DIY and save spirit!!!

    excellent job. you put your know-how to good use. don’t listen to all the knuckleheads posting negative comments. they are ALL jealous because they “don’t” know how to do what you do. one more thing that custom ATV snow blower needs is you wrapped in a canopy to keep you warm and dry so you can drink a nice cup of hot chocolate or coffee. keep up the good work !!!!!

    if im right thats an old jacobson/ford snowblower

  13. garrett6699 says:

    Its made to be powered from the stronger tractor motor.

  14. Orangebike666 says:

    Do you get enough weight on the ATV to push through? We made some thing similar but it was on the front of our bolens tractor and we had to keep adding weight.

    @ole9421

    you would get about 5′ outside your garage, and youd be done plowing during a storm up here, 4th gear my ass the snow is usually 3′ deep when we get storms

    drewmw1010, great job, am presently working on making one myself using a JD snow thrower and a Harbor Freight 13hp motor. One issue I have is the pulley runs in the opposite direction from how yours does. But I will succeed. Love a challenge and love building something with my own hands, don’t have a welder so having to bolt everything together, but I know it can be done. Would be interested in seeing some close up pictures if you have any available. Thx and Happy New Year.

    love to know what it wieghs, but hey , works good.

  21. ivbnbt says:

    Your engine pulley is to small. The tractors PTO pulley for the blower is 5-7/8″ diameter.
    With that your auger and impeller speed will be a lot faster and it will throw snow like it should. I’ve got the same blower on a 1980 LGT 165 and it will throw 30ft.

    dude that is awesome. Just busted out a home made snow plow for my argo and was looking for ideas for a snow blower. This vid got me the idea i need. good vid man.

  23. DamnStraightM35A2 says:

    any idea what year this blower is? I would assume late 60′s-early 70′s

  24. 400exrider92 says:

    My neightbor did the same thing but Ever since we got the snow blower for the back of our kubota he just pays us to do his driveway,
