I have an old Atlas 26" snowblower attachment that mounts on the front
of a lawn tractor and is powered by the tractor. I don't know anything
about it, or about snowblowers at all. It seems to be in working
condition -- it is easy for me to turn the pulley on the power input
shaft (pardon my probably incorrect terminology) by hand, which results
in the auger and the impeller turning. I'm going to hack it on to my
15hp Craftsman tractor.
What I need to know is how many RPM should the auger turn? I realize
that nobody will probably be able to tell me exactly, I have no idea
what kind of range I should be aiming for. 50rpm? 100rpm? 1000rpm?
