John Deere Snow Blower For Mower 100 Series Steel 44-in Yellow. John…

John Deere 44 Inch Snow Blower – 100 Series

The John Deere 44 Inch Snow Blower (100 Series) is the snow thrower attachment that has been specifically designed to attach to the John Deere 100 series of lawnmowers. The snow blower has a spout that is adjustable by up to 200 degrees from the seat of your 100 series lawnmower during operation so that you can quickly changed the direction you are throwing snow without having to leave your seat. This JD 44 inch snow thrower is quite different from the likes of the John Deere SB11 snow blower or the likes of the self propelled dual stage John Deere 1338 PE snowblower.

The John Deere 44 inch snow blower for the 100 series lawn mower also uses adjustable skid shoes to allow the operator to properly adjust the height of the bottom edge of the snow blower to make sure it doesn’t potentially destroy any fragile ground surfaces. The auger on the 100 series JD 44 inch snow blower is 0.3 m (12 inches) long allowing it to handily chop and break up even compacted snow in it’s path before spitting it out through the deflector chute. The diameter of the deflector chute comes in at 0.15 m (6 inches) which means that it can handle very large quantities of snow indeed.

In the case where you need to operate the John Deere 44″ 100 series snowblower in very deep snow and snow drifts, there is the option of adding a drift knife to either side of the yellow ‘bucket’ part of the JD 100 series snow thrower. While the width of the snow blower measures 44 inches, the height of the clearing area measures 0.46 m (18 inches), which for most homeowner who regularly clear snow should be enough for almost all conditions. To increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the John Deere 100 series 44 inch snow blower, it’s recommended that you do 2 things. The first is using tire chains for extra traction and grip. The second thing you need to consider is adding ballast in the form of Quik Tatch weights to the rear of your 100 series mower to again help give extra traction to the back wheels.

Even with that extensive background on lawn mower snow blower combos, there still may be some lingering questions. The following section aims to answer those questions, as it’s a collection of some of the frequently asked questions about garden tractors with snow blowers.

Q. Is there such a thing as a riding snow blower?

There are riding snow blowers, but these are actually just large snow blower attachments installed on compact tractors. The snow blower attachment can be removed and replaced with other attachments.

Q. Do lawn mower snow blowers work?

They do work. Unlike electric snow blowers, which use batteries or outlet power, or traditional snow blowers that have their own gas engines, lawn mower snow blowers run off the tractor’s engine. By removing the mower deck and replacing it with a snow blower attachment, the snow blower draws power from the tractor or lawn mower’s engine to operate the auger.

In some cases, the snow blower may attach to a PTO (power take-off). Regardless of the method, they turn tractors and mowers into sit-down snow blowers.

Q. Is it possible to make a snow blower from an existing lawn mower?

Yes. Some lawn mower snow blower combo models are universal, allowing them to attach to existing lawn mowers. Otherwise, simply search for a snow blower that fits your model number.

Q. Can a snow blower be attached to a zero-turn mower?

There are snow blower attachments for some zero-turn mowers, but it’s important to check that it’s compatible with the mower.

Q. What is a two-stage snow blower?

A two-stage snow blower features augers to scoop snow and an impeller in the chute to throw snow and ice further than a single-stage snow blower.

Best Garden Tractor Snow Blower Combinations—Cub Cadet 42-inch Snowblower Attachments

This brand is well known for its quality snow blowers, and this two-stage tractor snow blower attachment is no exception. Able to attach to a Cub Cadet, MTD, Toro, Troy-Bilt riding mower, among others, this tractor snow blower combination will turn your tractor into a riding snow blower to tackle even the worst snow storm.

Features of this high-quality and easy to use unit include a 220° chute rotation, adjustable skid shoes, scraper blades, and a clearing width of 42-inches

One satisfied purchaser who was unable to remove a wall of four feet of snow from his driveway prior to purchasing this tractor snow blower combination unit, wrote, “This unit easily punched through that wall. My driveway gets cleared in about a half-hour, instead of it being a five-hour ordeal with a push blower, and overall I’m pretty happy about it.”

Throwing distance: 40 feet

Best Lawn Mower Snowblower Combo for Heavy Snow—NorTrac Snow Thrower Attachment

This beast of a machine can tackle even heavier snow in the dead of winter. With a massive clearing width of 60–64 inch intake and throw distance of 40-feet, this tool is best for snow removal on large properties that tend to get a lot of snow per year.

The five-position manual chute that spins 360° allows users to decide where they want the snow to go, while the adjustable skid shoes keep the unit on track even in wet conditions.

What’s more, the strong steel frame ensures this attachment will last. “My drive is stone and 1,000 feet long,” explained one reviewer who used it in 12–14 inches of snow. “The machine works perfectly.”

Throwing distance: 40 feet

Best Two-Stage Snow Blower Mower Combo—Husqvarna Two-Stage Snow Thrower Attachment

Another heavy-duty unit that fits on most tractors and has a throw distance of about 80 feet, this 42-inch attachment is excellent for land with an incline if used with wheel weights and chains. Some customers noted that installing the pulley frame brackets took a few hours but was well worth it.

Additional quality features include adjustable skid shoes, a replaceable wear plate, and the driver’s ability to adjust the chute and deflector from the tractor’s seat. This attachment is compatible with Tex-style tractors from 2006 onwards.

One shopper described, “If you get a lot of snow throughout the winter and especially if you have a bad back like I do, this is a must. You will need tire chains, tire weights, and weight brackets on [the] back if you’re doing more than a flat driveway. I have a big incline driveway and city sidewalks. This beast throws snow big time!”

Throwing distance: 80 feet

Best Fast Three-Stage Mower Snow Blower—Cub Cadet Snow Thrower Attachment

Able to clear a driveway or property 25% faster than a two-stage blower, this Cub Cadet, three-stage snow blower can easily handle almost two feet of snow. The high-volume accelerator and durable steel chute save time by quickly moving snow through the blades to be cut and chopped up.

This snowblower attachment comes with adjustable skid shoes, a scraper blade and fits the XT1/XT2 Enduro Series lawn tractor.

One happy consumer wrote that this unit is “better engineered from every standpoint of mounting to the controls, belt routing, etc. You can now lift the blower with ease. The one control arm is more out of the way, so you can climb on and off the mower easier. The lifting pin clicks in cleanly. It is twice the construction of the old one.”

Throwing distance: 40 feet

Best Single-Stage Mower Snow Blower—Briggs Stratton Snow Blower

While not compatible with a lawn mower, this 22-inch Briggs Stratton is an excellent investment for those who need to tackle smaller walkways that get snow that reaches up to a foot. This single-stage snow blower works on paved areas and has a throw distance of 30-feet.

Easy to control, and with a compact design, this tool won’t take up too much space in a garage. In addition, this unit is light enough at under 100 pounds to be easily handled by just about anyone.

One customer described, “The electric start is amazing, and it lit instantly with the first push of the starter button. It arrived right before we got six inches of snow. On my first use, I cleared the entire driveways, entry walkways, and sidewalks for seven of my close neighbors.”

Best Mower Snow Blower Attachments—Ariens Snow Thrower

While not an attachment, this two-stage thrower can handle some heavy snowfall up to a foot high. The skid shoes provide a more firm grip on wet and slushy snow, and the self-propelled feature makes going up and down a driveway a cinch.

The clearing width of this tool is 24-inches with a 20-inch intake height. The chute can rotate 205°, and the variable speeds, with six forward speeds and two reverse speeds, make this one of the easier tools to control.

“After using the Ariens 2 Stage, I will never go back to a single-stage,” reported one satisfied reviewer. “Being self-propelled is a plus as it easily plows through deep snow with little effort.”

Best Adjustable Mower and Snow Blower—John Deere 44-inch Snowblower Attachment

john, deere, snow, blower

For medium-sized walkways in areas that get a lot of snow, this 44-inch, two-stage John Deere blower is optimal for heavy or slushy snow. With a throwing distance of up to 50 feet, this machine can tackle even the widest driveways or walkways.

While the recommended terrain is for flat areas, this tool can clear flat paved and gravel walkways and the optimal snow depth for this tool is 18 inches.

One shopper explained, “It moves mountains of snow very rapidly. It cleared a 150-foot driveway of heavy wet snow breaking over the top in under 25 minutes, and running into branches or rocks doesn’t bother it one bit. I can clear my twice as large drive as my neighbor in less than a third of the time they can with a massive walk-behind.”

The Best Lawn Mower Snow Blower Combo—Summary

Estate owners with long driveways will appreciate the features on the NorTrack 50-inch blower attachment (US6500,029.99, Northern Tool Equipment), while homeowners in heavy snow areas will need a heavier-duty option like the NorTrac 60-inch blower (US6500,229.99, Northern Tool Equipment).

Surprisingly, there are many different snow blower attachments to choose from that can guarantee optimal snow throwing. Each snow blower attachment works with a tractor lawn mower or a riding lawn mower for snow removal. Some models come with an electronic lift or a manual lift. Read on to learn more about the different types of snow blower attachments and what are their optimal uses.

Single-Stage Snow Throwers

A single-stage thrower is a complete unit, whereas two and three-stage units can be snow blower attachments. These tools cannot be used as lawn mowers but they can successfully clear snow that reaches up to ten inches. Be sure you have enough storage space for these machines as they can take up a lot of space in a garage or barn.

Two-Stage Snow Blowers

Ideal for variable snow conditions with a little over a foot of snow, a two-stage snowblower chops snow using an auger and dispels it with a high-speed impeller. These can be used on smooth or gravel driveways and uneven terrain. A two-stage snow thrower attachment must be attached to a tractor lawn mower or riding lawn mower.

Three-stage Snow Blowers

Three-stage snow blowers offer more power due to their innovative three-stage technology with two augers and one impeller. What’s more, these snow blower attachments include a high-volume accelerator that can clear snow quicker than a two-stage snow thrower. This snow blower attachment is best for deep snow that reaches up to two feet and is part of lawn tractor snow blower combos like two-stage snow blowers.
