Looking for Feedback on 220000 Tractor/Attachment Sno Thros

I found a 22000 series tractor with the 922003 Sno Thro attachment. Is there any disadvantage to the tractor and attachment models vs the straight snowblowers? Parts availability, robustness or important differences?

Thanks!

Hi Michael
Not sure exactly what your question is. The "tractor" is the driving end...motor, transmission and wheels. the "attachment" is the driven (front) end, usually a snowblower, but possibly (on some models) a leaf vacuum, mower or sweeper, etc. MH

I think what he is asking is what differences are there between the blower attachment for the "trac team" tractor unit and the blower portion of a standalone vintage Ariens snowblower.

Let's back up a second here...
Are all the vintage Ariens built as a separate "tractor unit" that you then attach a "blower attachment" to it, like a Gravely ?
If not, and the "trac team" line was different from the "stand alone" blowers, does the "trac team" blower attachment use the same parts (auger gear box, augers, bearing, impeller, etc...) as a "stand alone" snowblower ?

Same question with regard to the "trac team" tractor unit (drive mechanism, engine, shifter, clutches, etc...) vs the "stand alone" snowblowers.

I'm curious to know the facts as well.
I've looked at Scot's website and I'm looking for a definitive statement like "All Ariens snowblowers built between 1962 and 1975 were built on the separate "tractor unit" and "attachments" concept (like a Gravely).

If the designs are different, is one any more robust than the other and why ?

The Trac Team and the earlier Gard 'n Yard series offered various attachments for the front ends using a single tractor unit. There are no advantages mechanically to the multiple attachment machines. Just the added functionality of having multiple uses. MH

So you're saying that not all "sno thro" series were built on the separate tractor and attachments concept ?
Is there a pto or drive shaft that connect the two pieces ?
Are the standalone models any more robust since they are a "one piece" design ?

It was 125 bucks and super clean so I bought it. I'll post pics later.

My impression, after reading Scot's site, was that some units were one piece snow throwers only and the tractors were very similar but the tool could be changed out.
