Sheyenne Introduces Front-Mounted Snowblower for Compact Tractors
📅 Thu October 18, 2012 - National Edition
The 600CT snowblower for compact tractors features a concentric-axis design, meaning the impeller and auger rotate on the same shaft to improve performance and reduce maintenance concerns.
Sheyenne Tooling and Manufacturing has introduced the 600CT snowblower for compact tractors. It features a concentric-axis design, meaning the impeller and auger rotate on the same shaft to improve performance and reduce maintenance concerns. Additionally, the standard quick-attach, front-mount design of the blower allows full articulation of the loader’s arms during operation.
The 600CT has a 74-in. (188 cm) cutting width and a 28-in. (71 cm) cutting height for managing tall drifts and snow piles. The 18-in. (45.7 cm), four-blade impeller rotates the same direction as the auger to effectively direct snow into the discharge chute.
To power the unit, the 600CT comes with a hydraulic pump, which installs on the tractor’s mid-mount PTO shaft and uses oil from the loader circuit of the tractor. The blower also comes with a solenoid valve for electric-over-hydraulic control of the discharge chute and deflector. Once the system is installed, an operator can remove the 600CT and switch back to the loader bucket in just a few minutes. Also available is a rear-mounted pump option, which requires the user to purchase an additional step-up gearbox to rear-mount the PTO pump.
Other standard features include heavy-duty flighting and fully adjustable skid plates.
Founded in 1977, Sheyenne Tooling and Manufacturing is a family-owned manufacturer of farm equipment, snow removal and skid steer attachments for agricultural and construction applications. The company also manufactures a line of semi trailers for the agricultural industry.
