    CT Attachments Loader Mounted Compact Tractor Plow for 1025r

    Hi! I have a 1025r with a FEL. I am looking at plow options and like the options that allow me to use JDQA. I have looked at the AF10F at the local John Deere dealer and it looks very sturdy but it is manual angle. They have it for cheaper than Mutton so the price is pretty attractive. I'm trying to decide if the manual angle would be a big deal to me. I also saw CTA has a loader mounted plow that has hydraulic angling at a very good price (cheaper than going with the JD 54" blade and quick hitch). I've seen several people that were happy with their plows that connected to the quick attach. Does anyone have any experience with the loader mounted plows CTA carries?

    I have no experience with the CTA plow, mine is basically homemade with a 72" moose plow on a quick tach plate. Manual angle isn't really a big deal to me, I have developed a system in my driveway and only have to change angle 3 times to plow the entire thing. However, hydraulic angle is a plan for the future on mine, that said the CTA is cheaper than the JD plow and if I need to switch from plow to bucket it takes less than a minute to do so, that is the option I like to keep along with the ability to stack snow quite high with the FEL mounted plow.

    CTA Plows are Built well but Painted Poorly. There's a member over On MTF Just Bought a 66inch CTA for the Quick Hitch Paint was coming off Pretty Bad In his First use. And CTA did Not seem to care when he contacted them.( So My only Problem with them would be poor paint Job & customer relations) I have a 14 year old Deere 54inch Dozer Blade which The Paint has not come off of yet My 40 year old 54inch is still In good condition paint wise for my 140H3 Both Only need Paint On the ware edge But That's expected But That is nice that do offer a Hydraulic angle Plow anyways

    Here is a link to that thread over at MTF http://www.mytractorforum.com/12-joh...-cta-plow.html

    Their JDQA blade is brand new so there won't be a lot of people with experience with them. They just added it to their web page. It wasn't even mentioned on there a week or so ago when someone else commented they CTA was coming out with it.

    It looks interesting though. I may have to buy one before next winter.

    There is also the HLA 1000 series to consider, quite a few members have those and it’s available with hydraulic angling.

    I have their grapple, I love it. Built heavy and no issues with the paint. I have picked up rocks, logs and large clumps of dirt with it. BTW go with the hydraulic angle. You will be glad you did if you have different things to plow around.

    Thanks for the insight so far! If paint comes off that easily with CTA and the bigger thing customer service being poor, I'm apt to try other options. The sales at CTA seems to be response as they've answered my questions quickly but what sales department isn't My driveway has a 40' x 50' pad in front of the house and then I have another 250' that curves until it gets to the road where it straightens out. I'm not for sure how much I'd need to change the angle to know how much of a pain the manual angle change would be. I was looking at the HLA site and the closest dealers to SW Ohio are in Missouri and New York. Both are over 6 hours away. Do they have any dealers not listed on their site? I'd like to get a quote on the HLA blade so that I can comparison shop. If the AF10F had a hydraulic kit, I'd just start with the manual angle and upgrade if necessary with a hydraulic angle kit.

    I agree, mine is still manual angle for now, I'd like someday to make it hydraulic but it's the cost of the third function. Like I said earlier, I have developed a system for doing mine that I only change angle 3 times, yours doesn't sound that much different, and the truth is it is not really that big of a deal to get off the tractor a few times and turn the blade.

    Their dealer listing on their site is poor or outdated. My local Deer chain dealer carries HLA but isn’t listed-try a couple dealers around you (even the non green ones) or call HLA and ask.

    Bonus on the HLA line, they are available in matching JD green !

    I have the CTA 72” pusher for my 2025r. Well built and no paint issue for me. 2nd season with it and it works outstanding
