pushing snow w/ loader on compact tractor

well.... always heard +'s and -'s of pushing snow with a blade or add on bucket attached to a loader on a tractor.

Anyways $700 gets a guy a front mount snow bucket for a compact tractor. Looks strong and efficient.

I read on some forumns pushing snow with your loader may risk bending the loader but I see commercial co's doing it in parking lots, etc....

Anyways for $700 going to give it a try

I would rather have a snowblower thats for sure but new blowing at 3X the price vers. a pusher I will try a pusher for now. This one made by Long industries stateside

i have a blade that attatches to a trailer hitch at work... first year with it and so far its been good to us. works in 2x4 but 4x4 is better. if your good with your mirrors you cant go wrong.. it piles snow about 4feet just by making a pile.

Looks good.

There are risks, but if you know the area you are pushing (like your own drive) and what is under the snow, the risk will be greatly minimized, lol

What kind of bottom edge is on that pusher?

still not here? your going to need a pump instead of a snow bucket by time it comes. lol

The town here picked up that B2920 I showed you, We got the blower mounted on it, it works pretty good. The mount that came with it wasn't the right one, so Murray's in Russell got everything in and put it together.

Been running my Case DX25 for four years now with the 48" material bucket on my loader. Made 2 - 12" add ons that bolt onto either side of the bucket. I can push & stack alot of snow three times faster than any blower. I have over 3600 sq feet of driveway to clear. I can plow my entire
place in less than an hour. You couldn't give me a blower.

I went with the 2620 as the price was just to good to be true.

Picked it up stateside and the wait is for the backhoe. Dealer didn't have it in stock and instead of making a special trip / delivery for him to get it told him to simply wait and order with his regular monthly order. Saves him a few $'s in getting 1 piece delivered and no skin off my teeth to wait a month.

And see I'm the exact opposite. I have a 2005 New Holland TC33DA with a 60" bucket and hate using the bucket for snow. 3 point hitch snowblower (I had a 72" on there which was a little big for it) and just last week bought a 60" with a remote hydraulic chute. The problem with plowing / using the bucket is that we are in a high wind area, and I get terrible drifting. So I like to blow the snow clear of the sides of the driveway, I also don't clear my path to our woodpile regularly, and today the tractor blew itself through 3 feet of snow with no problem around 200 feet a nice path the woodpile. The blower is very handy to have.

blower is great if the winds high, problem with a pusher is that it only pushes so much and then it loses traction. we clear all our snow at work using a blower on a gehl 4840! USED To use the gehl next week im sure we will be using our new c190 from TwoStroke who hooked up a good deal on a new NEWHOLLAND c190 all i can say is this thing is a tank was pushing 7' frozen piles with ease and the lift height is sick !

Cool

Nice rig, boakley. You should have no problems if you keep your pushes straight. Lift arms start to bend when sideways pressure is applied. If you start to spin out, just lift and dump some of your load. Please post some pictures when you get your backhoe. Thanks. Tracstar
