Will this snowblower fit X585

Hi,

I bought a snow blower and a broom for $500 but they wont fit an X585. I know these attachments came off a JD420 but is there a bracket that you can buy to fit it to a X585? The new blowers can fit older tractors with the right quick attach.

Thanks for any replies!

The older series tractors had an offset input shaft and the newer series have a straight input shaft. You need to take the model numbers and serial numbers from the tractor and the attachment in and have a dealer look them up for compatibility.

I put a copy of your question over on the John Deere forum here too. There just might be someone who would see it there and have an answer for you. After all, we do have a picture of a front mounted snowblower on a tractor on our banner even though we don't see much conversation about them here unfortunately.

Like bad69cat suggested, a call to a JD dealer might get you an answer, might also get you a big I dunno too, depending on how much the dealer knows.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

I asked two dealers and they seem to know nothing about this? As of right now there not compatible but I'm thinking there might be away.

mxrx,I have a blower attachment like yours, mine goes on my JD 318. I think if you could fabricate mounting brackets for the frame and figure a way to line up a mule drive for the belt the hard part would be done. I'm not familiar with the hydraulic system on a 585, but you'll need 2 separate lines, one to lift and lower blower and another to turn chute, the belt turns the auger.
MyTractorForums and WeekendFreedomMachines forums are both good the latter one being primarily JD equipment. Wish you lots of luck with it, you got a good buy on your attachments. When you get done with it you'll have one great outfit. Remember most anything can be accomplished if you want it to.

Ask a different dealer then - that one obviously doesn't know his @$s from a hole in the ground. They made 2 different style hitches (one was a quick hitch) for the early 300-400 series machines and then they changed things a lot when they went to X series machines. You will need to know for sure what's compatible and what is not. The one you pictured to me looks like one from a 400 series but I can't say for sure since I am not near one to look at. - And I know they are not compatible with X series machines for a few reasons - one of which is the offset shaft.....then hose lengths and orientation.
