John Deere - Snow Blower For Mower - 100 Series - Steel - 44-in Yellow is rated
Rated 2 out of
The installation instructions are so poorly written and photographed that it nearly impossable to understand.
Although it will fit many models of jd tractors you may need a pair of very expensive brackets to mount it to yours.
Once mounted it works well except the lifting arm is extremely difficult to opperate because the unit is very heavy and the lift springs are worthless. I suspect the lift arm will be the first part to fail, although i hear the belts wear very quickly.
All in all John Deere is going downhill from the once great company it was.
Better get one now before they make them even worse.

This is second winter i have owned this blower I just put on my fifth belt for blower. Belt runs way to loose. It says in instuction manual dont be alarmed by loosness of belt but when you start working the blower and the belt starts warming up wich makes it bigger and looser the belt self destructs! Ended up wiring arm always on to make it tighter than the linkage provides!also had to weld supports on lift arm because it bends when you lift blower! Iam a machinist of 42 years

Problem out of the crate!
I just mounted my blower S/N H21. 984 or 964
Model AM142008 and the belt was installed incorrectly on the double pulley tensioner assembly..I had to pull up the parts diagram to learn that the non tensioning pulley had to be flipped in order so that the belt fed from the bottom of the pulleys to the blower and the belt coming from the top of the pulleys both twist as they go to the engine drive pulley.
For $2,000 Canadian this should be right from the factory.
The equipment looks way better quality and build than my 23 year old MTD tractor snow blower but until I use it I will reserve judgement on recommending it.

I just purchased a JD X370 with a snowblower.
We just got between two and three feet of snow. I live at a dead end street. The town plows pushed a pile of snow about five to six feet high. This machine did an exceptional job of clearing up my yard.

Poor snow traction
I just got a new JD S-130 and added the JD snow blower (44in) with the recommended weights/chains for tires.
Just had a 45 cm of snow and it did not move, spinning in snow, useless. Had to call for someone/pay to blow the snow. Very disappointed. JD snow blower basically useless with mid to heavy snow. Better off with a push snow blower. Waste of money...
