Default 1200 snow removal

Hi,looking for opinions, about picking up a snowblower/snowthrower. Of the ones to fit my 1200, what is the most reliable,best built unit. I have about 200' of concrete driveway. We typically don't get dumped on but every few storms it lets loose. I have a blade and a 24" Ariens I use now. Its about the same time wise with either machine.
Thx Dan

The Haban H48 won't work on your QL. Neither will the 353/4. Only the H42.

QA42A is the most common and easy to find. ALL other options are not as common and can be hard to find. If you want a snowthrower, you may pick any of the models you listed (that fit) as there are basically no difference other than size.... with one exception. The 364 blower requires a specific adapter to run on a QL tractor. They weren't a common blower and finding the correct mounting parts is difficult on a perfect day. QA42A is your best bet.

That said, you will need a creeper on your 1200 to run a snowthrower/blower. Does it have one?

The QA36A or QA42A Snowthrowers were designed for the 1200.

Nope, no creeper. I read the first 20+ pages here about blowers/throwers. I saw lots had mentioned keeping it loaded to throw properly. My hopes were on typicals snows it would work better than I hoped . But if thats not the case than so be it. Is a creeper hydro only? If not difficult to install? Is it another gear set?

Yes, gives you high low range. Here's a picture that I stole from sawdustdad of one on his 1000;

Watch some snowblowing/throwing vids on YouTube. Watch how slow they have to go when the snow gets pretty deep. That’s why you want a creeper on a gear drive with a thrower. Or you have to ride the clutch a lot .

Agreed. I had engine problems one year on my 125 and switched the QA-42 over to the 122 with a creeper.

While it worked well, there was a LOT of shifting required between gears and high and low range.

Let's just say it was an incentive to fix the K-301 for the 125.

And yes, you can bolt a QA implement onto a NF without the QA mounts.

Jeff posted one, but here's another.

(Sorry about the quality, it's an old cell phone video.) And that's a 18hp with a QA42A in snow about as hard and heavy as it gets. Can't go very fast when it's deep. I'll have to look and see if I have a video of the same tractor with the 450 blower on it.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
