So Iím now at 15 hours on my 2018 1025r. Been thinking about using it for snow removal. Currently I have a commercial series Husqvarna Hydrostatic Snow Blower I do all the concrete with. Then I have a straight driveway thatís gravel and 300í or so long. I have an 1999 Ram with a Boss Plow that gets used just for that. My daily driver pickup (1/2 ton) is too light for the Plow or I would put it on that and make room in my barn. So with the 1025r now Iím thinking can I task it with snow removal on the driveway? Some people say itís too light and wouldnít push that far down the driveway.
I have thought about a HLR snow pusher and raising the shoes to do the gravel drive only. I kind of ruled out a snow blower for the tractor......because of the gravel. Should I look at the Deere Plow? Or should I keep my truck? Itís enclosed and does the job. Just a pain having it take up one of the stalls in my pole barn all year. Let me know what ya think and what attachment you would recommend. Or have you realized the 1025r is too small? I live in Michigan too...... have a great day.
