How can a snow blower be made from a walk-behind tractor

Motoblock is an extremely convenient tool for working the land. In other words, land owners buy it in order not to work with the plow and the horses. After all, as you know, the possibilities of a car are much greater than those of a person or an animal.

If we talk about the capabilities of the motoblock, they are limitless. And not only because his strength is enough for plowing the entire area of ​​the garden. The fact is that for a motoblock you can adapt absolutely any device that will work perfectly together with a powerful engine. For example, with this technique you can create a snow blower in the winter. As you know, throwing snow away with a shovel is quite problematic, and there is no sense in calling a special snow blower either.

Why not adapt your walk-behind tractor in the garage as a snow blower? His abilities will be enough to act as an active snowthrower and perfectly clean the area adjacent to the house from snow. Such a snow blower will be a great helper in the winter, especially if there is really a lot of snow in the yard.

How to create a snow blower from the motoblock: nozzles for snow removal

Answering a question about how to make a snowthrower, many may say that the corresponding nozzles can always be purchased in a specialized store. But this solution cannot be called optimal, since Many owners prefer not to spend money on something that can be made independently.

First of all, when creating a snow blower, you should decide on all the necessary nozzles. In particular, you can adapt the following:

  • rigid rotating brushes;
  • suspended snow shovel, equipped with knives;
  • rotary snow collector.

Snow removal with hard rotating brushes

The snow blower can be adapted to the walker in the form of rigid rotating brushes, which are designed for cleaning small amounts of snow and simply clearing the track. It should be noted that they are suitable only if the snow is soft. They are perfect and when you need to clear any decorative element that does not tolerate strong impacts. It must be said that this kind of brush can be perfectly turned in different directions, which ensures efficient and fast snow removal.

This kind of unit is useful in the case when it comes to heavy and wet snow, which, moreover, has already managed to compose. A hanging snow shovel, coupled with special knives, provides a very effective cleaning of heavy snow, which is difficult to clear with own forces.

Use of rotary type snow dumper. This type of equipment for a motor-cultivator can very often be found on city streets, especially at a time of year when a huge amount of snow falls. A rotary type snow dumper is a tube-shaped device that absorbs a large part of the snow and throws it away with a large amplitude. This method of clearing is suitable if there is really a lot of snow.

How to properly operate the walker in the winter

In order for the walker to work effectively in the winter, it is very important to operate it, adhering to a few tips.

  1. Keep the device warm only. The motoblock must idle in a warm garage, so that later it does not have to start it for a long time and in vain to spoil the engine.
  2. Replace gearbox oil. As you know, frost causes oil to thicken. That is why you should take care of special synthetic oils that are designed for such conditions.

Production of the snow blower of the motor-block

In order to create a snow cleaner from the motoblock, you need to acquire the following elements:

  1. Engine tiller. You can not even use the walker itself, only its functional part.
  2. Metal for the roof, from which the shell for the screw will be made later.
  3. Plywood 10 mm thick. It is useful for the formation of sidewalls.
  4. Metal corner, which is suitable for the manufacture of the frame.
  5. Half an inch pipe, which is convenient to adjust as a handle.
  6. 3/4 inch pipe that can be used as a screw shaft.
  7. In advance, you need to make a through-cutting right in the middle of the pipe. It is useful when attaching a plate made of metal, that is, the blade.
  8. Actually, the scapula itself, which was mentioned above. It should have a size of 120x270 mm.
  9. The side part of the tire for the car or the tape for the transport of goods with a thickness of 10 mm. The basis of a two-way auger is formed from these elements, which places the snow on the blade.
  10. Rings cut from the above tape, the diameter of which is 28 cm.
  11. Bearings of the closed type.

To properly attach the platform of the engine, which was taken from the motoblock, a pipe is taken and the corners of metal are welded to it. They are located perpendicular to the plate. In order for the shaft to enter the bearings normally, it is necessary to create cuts at its ends and make them knock. When this process is completed, the diameter of the shaft will decrease. It should be noted that the bearings in any case are required precisely of the closed type. We can not allow them to get a little bit of snow.

After the above design is assembled, it is most effective to put it on skis. If the wheels are adapted to such an assembly, then it is likely to simply get stuck in the snow, especially if the latter is deep enough. The basis for skis can be turned from wood-made bars, on which special lining of plastic is fixed, providing much better glide over the snow. If on hand there are boxes that are used to install electricity wiring, you can use them.

The so-called rotary chute, which is engaged in throwing snow in a given direction, can be created using a plastic pipe, which is used in sewer networks. Its diameter should be quite large - no less than 160 mm. This pipe must be attached to an identical pipe, the diameter of which is correspondingly smaller.

And further, all the assembled elements adapt to the auger body. In order for the snow to be thrown in the right direction, a small part of the sewer pipe is attached to the chute for turns. The diameter of the gutter must be taken slightly larger than the width of the auger blade itself. This is necessary for the rapid advance of snow towards ejection. The chute for the direction of turns has the ability to adjust the range of the snow. In particular, for this you need to adjust its length.

After all the above manipulations have been done, it is necessary to start painting the new snow blower in order to give it a presentable look. And after the paint is dry, it can be used to clean the snow. Some owners do not stop there and invent a self-propelled version of the snowthrower.

It may seem to some that creating a snowplow on its own is not such an easy task. Therefore, if there are opportunities and means, then this kind of unit can always be purchased at specialized outlets. But it should be immediately noted that such a device will cost a lot of money, because it also belongs to the class of a peculiar technique. On the other hand, if at home there is a fully functional walk-behind tractor, then you can purchase any of the units listed above. The device is powerful and reliable, which means that it will be able to cope with snow removal. And yet, as practice shows, in this whole process there is nothing complicated.

It is enough to pick up all the necessary materials, thoroughly examine the proposed instructions and correctly create the unit.

Creating a snowplow under the force of each. This method helps to save a lot of money that can always be spent on more serious needs.
