    I received my adapter from UPS yesterday. Funny thing being that I had to drop the loader to mount the plow to plow the driveway so the UPS guy could deliver it.

    I installed this and took it back off the same day - it makes my "float" too heavy and digs up gravel on my driveway when trying to plow.

    If anyone would be interested in this unit I will sell it for $150 - I paid $260 for it - need to pick it up near Denver. no shipping. Please PM me if interested.

    It is this product for the 1025R. Used for about 90 minutes. :-)

    That's a generous offer but maybe you should experiment with it a bit before selling it. I'd jump on this if I were closer. Try adjusting the curl/dump so the cutting edge is a bit more vertical or even a bit past vertical in more of a scraping mode than cutting. That should keep the cutting edge from digging in as badly which should lighten up the "float" a bit. Are you using a steel edge or a rubber squeegee edge? The rubber edge should also help on the gravel.

    You should not be using you loader mounted plow in float mode anyways. Any front mounted implement is going to dig into a gravel driveway when using float mode. There are numerous threads regard plowing gravel driveways, why you should "not use float mode" when plowing, and proper ballast. I would highly recommend further research if you haven't already sold your Artillian attachment. I have that set up and love it. Seat time with this setup will prove very beneficial and you will probably change you mind.

    What is "Rear Ballast"? And why do you need it?

    Works great for me with the factory mount in float mode. Everyone's mileage varies I guess. :-)

    I have the artillian "non metallic" edge and wings, which are great. I doubt that this item will sell, so i may play with it some more - but not this year. I have the plow working just fine with the factory mount and I really just don't have the time to mess with it. :-)

    Too bad you aren't closer 'cause we'd both be happy with the sale. :-)
