    455 Quick Hitch on Plow Adapter

    Is there any chance a 455 quick hitch would fit on the plow adapter? If I could reuse my existing plow setup for the 1025R I just ordered it would make the decision easy. We don't get a ton of snow around here so if it doesn't fit I'll probably just try the loader with a snow edge the first year.

    If it did, we'd surely have it listed as such.

    If we happen upon one of these hitches, we'll be making an adapter for them because your question is a common request.

    Otherwise, if you come across a hitch for the 1000 series tractors, grab it, and then you'll be off to the races.

    Regarding using your bucket, that will likely get old very very quickly.

    I figured that would be the answer. If I was closer I'd let you borrow it to make an adapter from. The front half of the hitches appear to be the same. I'm debating if I can just buy the back mount section of the 1025r quick hitch, which looks to be around $300. I might hold out this year and keep my 455 to plow, which won't be nearly as fun as using the 1025r. I have a hard time spending $905 for the quick hitch and angle kit for the amount of snow plowing I do.

    Shucks, I thought you were in Wisconsin (can't see people's signature while posting, unfortunately). Being in Virginia, I can understand a little more why you'd want to try the bucket. Probably best to ask others from your area how well it would do for you.

    I plowed with mine.

    For the first few years I plowed with my FEL bucket. I now have a 42" blower.

    You should have no problem where you live.

    Here are some picks of what the bucket handled.

    In addition to the amount of annual snowfall, each person's property conditions play a big role in determining the best equipment for the job. Length and shape of driveway, surface type, grade of the land, wind conditions, and obstacles are a few examples of other things that should be considered when choosing equipment. What works for one person might be the worst solution for their neighbor.
