Spent about thirty hours researching a snowblower for an LA140. Home Depot where the LA's were sold recommended a 44" blower.
I got real lucky and scored a barely used one with weights and chains. Boing. NOTHING on the frame lined up. So I drilled my own mount holes and got hardware.
But it an idler pulley rubbed on the steering gear. Which I think needs replacing now after test. So I repositioned the pulley and it rubs on the frame. I'll see if the rig works sooner or later.
But the main issue is that JD is secretive with info. Top secretive. I had issues with a push mower but that's another story.
I'll never buy Deere again. JD is just a mean green money making machine.
