In the Fall of 2011 I went shopping for a snowblower for my Husky LTH18538 lawn tractor. I went to my local Hometown Sears store to view a floor display and found that none were out on the floor. The manager advised he had one in stock and that was in a seal carton in the back. Manager did not want to open the carton to view it so I took the 45 mile ride to a REAL Sears store to view the blower on display there. I subsequently purchased it along with the wheel weights and chains. *****
Prior to installation I took the time to sort out all the parts. This was a great time saver during assembly since there are parts included for various models that I wouldn't be using. Quite impressed with that fact. (Make a point of saving the extras just in case you ever wish to re-sell the blower) I assembled and installed the blower over the course of two afternoons. Estimated time was between 8 and 10 hours. I found the instructions were well documented and the project was easy for anyone mechanically inclined with the proper tools. Mounting the unit to the tractor is two man job, but one person can get it done with a little muscle and some maneuvering of the unit. I did touch up the paint where it was worn from shipping and from scratches during my assembly. *****
I waited just about all winter to get a good snow fall in which to use the blower. In my area of Wisconsin, it was getting an unusually light season for snow. What snow came was in the 1 to 3 inch catagory and hardly worth blowing. Finally, on February 29th we got 7 to 9 inches of the heavy wet stuff. As a proud poppa I got on my tractor and engaged the blower. For the first 3 feet I blew snow 30 feet. Then I hit the hard stuff and that was it. The blower stopped and the belt flew off. Re-installed belt, same thing happened when I hit the drift. Re-installed belt and this time it flew off when I engaged the blower. I then parked the unit and inspected it for the problem. I found that 3 of the 4 studs that secure the Idler Bracket (part #24281) had sheered off. Either the bolt studs were stressed due to being over tightened at the factory or they were of poor quality. I contemplated calling Sears for warranty service, but figured they would just replace they with similiar questionable studs. I wound up drilling out the studs and replacing them myself with machine harden bolts. *****
Finally re-assembled, I got on my machine and went back to the task at hand. During the repair it had started raining and the snow was even more wet and dense. Due to the wet heavy snow I had to go at a slow speed, but the blower performed well. I was shooting snow and water 20 feet without the unit ever plugging up. Impressive. Overall, the blower reduced my snow removal time by 2/3's and it will be interesting to see how it performs with a normal snow fall. ******
Other than the incident with the sheered studs, the unit appears solid and of good construction. Time will tell how well the unit holds up with continued usage.
I purchased this for a tractor I bought in 2005. I needed a "kit" to make it fit for $50.00. In the box with the blower were 2 other "kits" that wouldn't work for mine. So I basically bought 2 extra kits for at least 50 bucks each that I didn't need. Disappointing.

Works awsome in heavy or light snow! Use common sense people in your heavy wet snow removal !!!! only push your tractor to it's limit in the heavy snow! Take your time, and dont bog down your engine! I like the ajustable feet on the blower. I run mine aound 1/2" up from the ground. Use a piece of plywood under your blower and let blower rest on it to get correct height on ither side of blower. YOU WILL BLOW YOUR SNOW BLOWER BELT! And there you are, " NO REPLACEMENT." Throw's light snow 40 ft. And for deep, light snow above 8 inches. you can raise your snow blower, taking half the snow, and less stress on your blower belt/tractor, then go back and finish the rest of it. Thats what I did last winter here in Northern Wisconsin, and it did just awsome!! BUY CHAINS, YOU WILL HAVE SPINNING TIRES WITHOUT A SET OF CHAINS!!!! GUARANTEED!!! ALSO,When buying this blower, make shure to buy an extra snowblower belt! If you dont, you will be FU%*@#! When it blows, And your snow will sit, on a Sunday when it's snowing all day and Sears is closed!!! Some assembly required, but not bad! If your a shade tree mechanic. The bumper on the gt6000 will have to be removed in place of the blower, and 2 mounting brackets will be bolted to the front side's of the frame. and 2 under the tractor frame for pully assembly. Time to assemble and mount to tractor...2-4 hrs Removing blower in spring and mounting tractor bumper and such...1 hr. Great Blower!!! I saved $$$$$ purchasing on line from Sears for $999.00 . Regular price about 1200.-1300.00 Watch for droping prices and a good time to buy is around fall! That's what the Sears guy told me anyway. BUY AN EXTRA BELT...BUY AN EXTRA BELT !!!!! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID !!!!!! AROUND $35.00-$55.00 on line.

bought this blower 2 years ago and have not had to use it a lot but has worked great thus far. Have had some problems with belt slipping off and breaking but really moves snow. I have been very impressed so far. Just cleaned driveway this week with some 4 foot drifts and with some time and patience was able to get through it. Other people in area telling me thier blowers did not work well.
I bought theis attatchment this summer and assembled it this fall getting ready for winter. Assembly took about 4hrs. In Maine we have had approx 5 snow storms and used it only twice for complete storms. First storm didn't start choke not adjusted properly from factory. The next next 2 storms worked fine. when blzzard arrived the auger bolts sheared off housing . Replaced auger housing then belt kept falling off. Plus broke shear pins and had to drill them out. I am thinking of selling it and buying something else. I have a call into a Sears repair tech.

If you're into having the auger belt fall off each time you try and throw snow, this snowblower is for you. Mine worked well for one winter and now the auger belt will not stay on. I replaced the belt with a new Sears belt ($100) and the problem continues. Researching the issue has proven even more frustrating, as many, many people are having the same issue.
I purchased a GT6000 garden tractor last year with the intention of buying the snow thrower attachment after I sold my snow blower. The assembly instructions were pretty good as long as you have some mechanical ability. I found one error, but not a big one as long as you?re read the correct path for your tractor. I highlighted the trail for my GT. I did install the chains and heavy wheel weights and that was the right decision. We had a few storms up here, including heavy wet snow. All I can say is once you know what you are doing, the units works perfectly. We got hit with a 30" storm recently and this was the test. It worked great. The only minor issue was the chute does not go 90 degrees to the left, about 100. I think I can modify it. That was not a big issue. The problem I found is the angle adjustment was either all the way up or down. it would not stay in any other position. Other than that, a great unit.

It sure throws the snow but assembly is TOUGH! I am a skilled mechanic and it had me cursing. The bigest problem with it was the fact that the drive pully on the auger was installed backwards from the factory and ground the case when the PTO was engaged ! A novice would never have figured this out ! Once assembled CORRECTLY it works great.

I've had one on my tractor for 10 years, still works great, and I just installed one on my parents tractor. They work great. highly recomend them to anyone.
