    What is the best and economical snow pusher for 1025R?

    I have a 1025 R and currently have a bucket to push snow. I saw previous older threads about the HLA 1500 and wanted to get reviews and thoughts about what is the best snow pusher for the money on a 1025R.

    I have one...

    Tim,

    I went out this year and purchased a HLA 1500 Snow pusher for my 1025R. It's a beautiful setup where you can go right up to your garage door and use the back scraper (top part) feature to drag snow away. All I can say is this thing is built like a brick $hit house.

    I bought a 6 ft Express Steel snow pusher and I finally was able to use a few days ago after about 10 inches of powder snow. I have a 1025R and it handled the 6 ft pusher no problem. I believe it weighs about 600 lbs or so. I didn't get the back scraper version but I don't think I'll need it since I can use my box blade for most of the work a backblade would have been used for.

    I've had an HLA 1500 for two seasons and can attest to the superior build quality and robust construction. I have the optional back drag blade installed which is extremely useful if you have the need.

    You will not be disappointed if you buy an HLA. Those guys up in Canada really know how to make snow moving equipment!

    I have never heard a negative point about any product HLA makes for snow. If I didn’t already have my HLA 1000 60” front blade I’d seriously be looking at the snow pusher with backdrag for my 2032r.

    Fishbait-any idea what yours weighs?

    This is my first winter with an HLA1500 66" pusher. It seems like it's going to do great. We've only had a couple of 3-5" snowfalls and the ground hasn't frozen yet. I really like how I can back drag with it.

    In post #2 there in the 1st photo is a black pickup. I would think a blade on the front of it would be the “best way” to push snow.
