What size pulley was used on the belt driven blowers for the cub?

Pete,

I don't think that there ever was a PTO driven snowblower for the pre-154 Cubs and LoBoys. See the discussion above.

I just assumed that if Danco had one that ran off the PTO that there must have been a pulley involved. May be a belt driven shaft that ran under the tractor? Or May be an engine mounted on the back with a pulley and belt that utilised the mower mule drive pullies? Sure would like to see some dockumentation or parts manuals for them.

Pete,

There is a shaft that runs directly from the auxiliary engine to a gearbox on the blower. The Cub's drive train/PTO is not used.

Running a snow blower off the PTO would only work in the right conditions (1 in a 100?). Depth of snow and water content would play a big part; in that if you were getting into deeper or wetter snow, you would need to slow down the tractor, which would slow down the snow blower, which would require you to slow down the tractor even more, which would slow down the snow blower even more, which would require........well you should get the idea by now. From my limited small walk behind snow blower experience it's best to have the blower turning fast and advancing slow in the heavier stuff. I wouldn't be surprised that even with a separate engine running the blower there would be times when you'd be feathering the clutch to slow down the ground speed even in first gear.

So am I correct in assuming that the caption in Ken Updike's book is not correct for the fact that it tends to leave the impression the PTO on the Cub is actually used? From this thread and Don's pics, I am assuming only the auxiliary motor was utilized?

That's my understanding, Brian. Wish we could get a hold of a brochure or manual to really verify that. I just added a search on eBay. We'll see if anything shows up.

this is off topic, but did the street sweepers that were made for a Cub or Cub Loboy run off of the PTO or an auxiliary motor similar to the snow blower scenario?

In this photo, you can pretty clearly see the shaft coming from the aux engine.
