John Deere Snow Pusher
« on: October 29, 2009, 03:56:54 PM »
I put this together 2 years ago to clean off the driveway only. I picked up this 111 Hyro for $25.00. I pulled the 11hp single Briggs and put in a 19Hp Briggs twin that I got from a junk Sears. I had to notch the frame here and there to make it fit. The crank ended up in a different spot but got lucky as the hydro belt made it back to the hydro ok. I only had to cut out the bracket that was used for the elec PTO clutch. I didn't want to butcher up the hood (no pun intended) so I made some new hinges to raise the hood 3 inches for the engine to fit.  I fitted it with "duel exhaust" a straight thru screw in muffler on each cylinder. Seat from a junk MTD. See below what I used for wheel weights



The wheel weights are kawaski flywheels that fit perfect. One piece of all thread holds them on. Chains are cut down car chains






I call it "snow problem". I have about $45 invested.

What is "snow"? I think I may have forgotten. Is it anything like sand? We have a bunch of that.

That's really cool. I was supposed to get some snowblower attachments for my Cub Cadets, but the guy that gave me the mowers threw them away :doh:

That would have been good for me, because it would have only been $0 invested :D


I eventually gave up on trying to find the right attachment for the front of the cubs and went and bought a John Deer walk-behind snowblower.

Looks like a snow pushin machine!  I do have to say, I have a 19.5 oppossed twin with the dual screw in mufflers- and i think it sounds like dog crap compared to other oppy's i have heard with big open exhaust, and not even much quieter(some yes).  I plan on changing that as soon as possible.

I know this is a REALLY old post but I just stuck a 18.5 "L" head briggs in my 111 and don't want to butcher the hood either. would you, if you can , send a couple of pics of the hinge area and the dash area so I can get an idea of how to close this (dash) area off?
Thanks,
Bob BTW, this is a super easy re-power conversion isn't it? :)
