    Snow Removal with 1025R

    Good Morning,

    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.

    Thanks JB

    I wouldnít rule out the snowblower. I use the 54Ē blower on gravel at home. I also bring it up to the cabin a few times a winter to open up the dirt driveway. This is in northern wi. I do repaint the inside of the blower in spring. I set the shoes to have the blower leave 3/4Ē of snow until the ground is frozen. I donít pick up much gravel by doing this. Itís not unusual for me to have to deal with 10 -20 of snow at the cabin. I canít see the 1026r pushing that kinda snow very far.

    Tons of people push snow with their 1023ís and 1025ís. The rule with small tractors is that they will do what the larger ones will do, just might take longer. Some of the one series guys will respond to you and tell you what they use and how they use it. But I do know your tractor can handle this job.

    My 2305 pushed 15" without working hard down a 750' drive with a circle at the top. It just took many passes to get it cleaned up. Several hours of work.
    Chains on with a 260bh for ballast.
    Bought a woodmaxx blower and last storm took literally 20 minutes. Three quick passes.

    I'd stick with the truck. You will move more snow in a lot less time with the truck than with the tractor.

    My first thought is to ditch the Ram but before I commit to that. What is your average snow fall?

    You should add your equipment to your signature.

    Hello,

    I have my tractor info in my signature. Itís a. 2018 1025TLB. My ram that Iím debating on replacing is in great shape. It has an 8í Boss Super Duty Poly straight blade. Thatís really all I use the truck for however. Google tells me our average snowfall is around 75 inches.

    The one series is totally capable of doing what you need it to for your snow removal. But, if the truck isn't costing you anything but maintenance, I'd stick with that. Sitting in a heated truck cab beats an open station tractor IMHO. Besides, I see you have a loader, use that to move the piles back, etc. Then you can say you've used the 1 series for snow work.

    Seems something may be wrong with your signature as with most, signature information it is not included in a reply such as this one.

    I was asking, how much is your average snow fall, as in each snow fall/storm.
