    New 60" and 66" snow blade for JD compacts

    Hey all, wanting some opinions on this.. Im thinking about getting one of these blades and trying to decide which size to get.. I have both a 2305 and 2520 with quick hitches for both.. More than likely, I would be using the blade on the 2305. Im sure it would handle the 60" fine, but not sure about the 66"... For $25 more what do you do? Im gonna email them and ask if they have any measurements of ground clearance of the blade full up and angled on both mounted on a 2210/2305. Tractor pictured is a 2320..

    snow plow

    Newt ; hi; them are nice looking blades, look's almost like deeres own, just painted green, and price seems fair too. I can't remember how much wider I made mine, but after extending width, when u pick it up which ever way is angled it sits lower to the ground. it still clears ground just not as high before widening it. but at least rear tire not running in windrow of snow. thanks for showing.

    Interesting. Never heard of this company. Seems to be ctattachments.com

    I've never heard of them before so have no idea of the quality of their products.

    I think with the 2305 I'd stick with the 60". I'm sure you could push a 66" plow in 3"-4" of snow but in a 18" storm you may start running into problems.

    Very nice looking blade , have never figured out why Deere doesn't offer a true heavy made ,taller blade for Series 1 & 2 tractors. Look at some of the other brand tractors and they put a blade , nice size cutting edge and large shoes compared to the thin piece of metal Deere calls a CUTTING EDGE AND SHOES NOT WORTH the metal they were made from to be used in gravel. Sorry just my 2 cents.

    Same for me, I added I think 5-6" on each side of 47 blade. Worked great on the 2305 , but if you have sloping ground I wouldn't go over 60" with a sub comp tractor . Because when angled the blade comes very close to dragging.

    Just as an FYI, If you'd rather use your loader arms and want to be able to swap a plow between your tractors, you might also want to look at Michigan Iron's plow unit. It'll cost more but it stacking snow is an issue it might be worth the added cost.

    The front dethatcher on their site is interesting. 60" wide and uses the hydraulic cylinder from the JD quick hitch to raise and lower it. Best part it's only 300 bucks. Malone wisconsin is where it says they are located and that's only 40 miles north of me.

    Sounds like time for a road trip!

    I'm wondering how much their plows weigh. With 1/4" steel and the added height I have to wonder how much of a beating they put on a QuckHitch. The only thing they list a weight on is their grapple (which actually looks kinda nice!).

    And I just happen to have this coming Friday off

    They show the grapple as weighing 195 pounds including the hydraulic cylinder. They list the blades as being 24" tall as made from 1/4" steel. Bet them weigh more than the Deere 54".

    I think a road trip is definately in order.

    JimR. that is another problem, the quick hitch IMHO isn't gonna stand to much beating with my extra weight that I put on sides, I guess when it goes, i'll just do like billstmaxx did to his and weld up one heavy enough to stand pushing more than 50 foot drriveways in the subuards. Boy cheese train wished I lived closer I go with u on the road trip. Big Jim p.s. I don't think I would be back home before wife got off work!
