I’m thinking about building a snow blower for a utv. The cost to buy one is insane and there’s nothing like building one.
I have 2 ways I was going to do this build. The first one was hydraulic and having the motor, pump and tank mounted on the hitch and then having a pump mounted on the blower ran by belt/chain. I have to achieve 1200-3600rpm to the blower.
The second way which is cheaper is mounting the engine straight to the blower which is going to add more weight to the front of the utv.
I did the research on the size motor it would take to run my blower but I’m not sure what pumps to use. Can anyone point me in the right direction for pumps?
Engine I was thinking of using:
440cc Bore: 92, Stroke: 66.
18.0 HP / 3600 RPM.
1" Diameter, 2 ¾” Long, ¼” Keyway,
3/8” Size 24 UNF - Drilled and Tapped
Measurement from Center of Shaft to Base: 5"
