I checked Craig's List and found an old McKee Sno-Lander 720 for sale. McKee, an old Canadian company, was the first company to offer the modern twin auger tractor snow blower. The McKee 720 Snolander is a CAT2, twin-auger, seven-foot-wide, 30ish" high snow blower and this one is fitted with a hydraulic chute.

McKee got bought out of business and parts are not available.

I had the guy I purchased the blower from power it up with his 40hp Ford tractor so I could see everything work as well as to check that the augers where straight and bearings good. The only specific part to McKee are the augers and 90 degree oil-bath gearbox. McKee built snowblowers for John Deere as well as New Idea. The John Deere version of the McKee 720 is the 270. It has been suggested to me that a Loftness gearbox could be used as a replacement if ever needed.
