    HLA 1000 60" Snow Blade for H120 Loader

    That little bit of snow that hit us last week made me nervous, it is on its way sooner or later. Of course it warmed up now but it shall return. So off I went to the dealer to pick up a snow blade for the H120 loader on my 1026R.

    I've wanted one for a long time, I usually blow snow with a 60" rear snow blower but when there is just that little skiff it would be nice to plow it into windrows then blow it away. It'll also be good for the first snowfalls in that I can set the shoes down an extra inch to leave enough to pack in for a base. It's a manual angel but it is adaptable for hydraulics, we'll see how the first winter goes but I think it'll be okay as it is. I think this is going to work real good, I can change between bucket, forks, and plow so easy; and I use all three through the year so this new toy is the answer. Now I hope I don't have to use it until December.

    Hello balrog006!

    I have been looking at these for a while now. How long have you had yours and any concerns of bending the loader arms while using it? How deep was the deepest snow you have plowed? I plow asphalt and gravel drives. I have been using the bucket so far but I have been thinking that with a plow on I could speed up the process.

    Thank you for your time!

    If ya don't mind, can I ask how much the dealer hit you up for that HLA? And if you know, the hydro angle option cost?

    I was discussing plow options with my dealer Friday for a few minutes and he mentioned the HLA as an option but we didn't get into pricing.

    I paid $2,075 Canadian, purchased in Edmonton Alberta at a JD dealer. I never shopped, I just saw and bought. I never priced the hydraulic cylinder for it, I didn't know it took one until I went through the owner's manual.

    I've had it for 3, this will be the 4th winter. Plowed 12"+ of heavy wet snow, and 15-18" of regular snow and pushed it all up into tall piles. With no outright abuse, I'd have no concerns bending anything.

    I plow a mix of gravel drive and concrete and think the plow does very well.

    If memory serves it was ~$1800-ish, but that was 3+ years ago.

    I remember asking what the cost difference was for hydraulic angling, but it was ~$1000. I got an Artillain diverter and converted the plow do hydraulic myself for less total than the upgrade.

    Comparison to the Bucket

    I've heard warnings about using this type of blade on the H120 that it is too much out front of the tractor. And true, it feels that way, so I measured it. The blade is only 12" longer than the bucket. Compared to working with my forks, this is not much.

    And not that I want it to snow for keeps too soon, but I am oddly looking forward to playing with this combination.

    The stress isn't really an issue if you leave the blade straight but a lot of snow plowing is done with the blade angled to one side. This increases the lateral force on the loader assembly.
    However, I use a similar arrangement (home built) on the front of my loader for snow and have not seen an issue.

    This issue is raised all the time with loader mounted plows but I have yet to see anyone with actual damage.

    But with that said, with the plow sitting so far forward like this, is the weight of the snow pushing the front end of the tractor sideways while plowing.

    Agree. You probably want to be a bit careful about ramming big snow piles with the blade angled.
