    Anyone come up with a solution on how to make your snowblower a plow?

    Hi,

    There are a lot of people on here who seems to come up with some really great ideas so I thought someone might have already come up with a way to help on mine.

    I have a 54" snowblower that works great and I love it but when I only have a few inches or inch or 2 of ice that is where I have my problem!


    I have a back blade I put in to help but it takes time to take my ballast off and then put it on the rear and plow backwards. I don't want to have to take off the snowblower (okay im lazy).


    Well I got to thinking why isn't there a blade you can hook up to the front of the blower for the small jobs? Anyone done something like this? I thought of using the 54 blade but I would still have to take the blower off and still have my pto on.


    If there was a way to hook a blade of some type quick and easy wouldn't this help us all? Not for big jobs just the small ones that I know most irritate some others on here.

    Maybe something like weight that can be attached to the front of the blower without damaging it just to push a little slush or snow. Might be a great little money maker for someone


    Look forward to hearing your ideas and solutions.

    It seems so simple but yet why cant I find something like that to use!

    I actually have a walk behind I retired when I got my 1025 so this might just work....hummmmm hummmmmm thanks! It sure would beat changing attachments or buying larger expensive fixes.

    I don't have a front blower so, are they that hard to take off? The whole idea of the quick hitch is supposed to be to make all of that pretty simple.

    Its not hard. Just time consuming and annoying to have to switch back to the FEL if you have one. I prep the day bfore if I know its gonna be a little storm with slushy mess. We also have had a crappy rainy winter so far here in CT and i havent even moved my blower from storage yet.

    Depending upon the snow conditions, I have just plowed with my blower, using it like a snow pusher. After all, it's about the same width as the standard sized plow and the end panels on the blower make it function like a snow pusher.

    I would install rubber edges on the snowblower where the shoes are and where the wear plate is if it won't clean well enough without it, when using it as a snow pusher.

    Is it the ideal snow plow, well of course not, but it also requires no effort to simply push snow with it and not turn the blower on. Or, if the snow accumulates enough in front of the blower, you could turn it on to "clear it".

    Just make sure if you are using your blower as a pusher and NOT turning it on you be careful the snow in the rear impeller area doesn't freeze up, which could happen if you store your machine in the outside or a unheated area. The best way to avoid this would be to operate the blower long enough to clear it of snow at the impeller stage of the machine and / or park it where it's heated so the snow melts out of the blower, which is what I have done with mine.

    Hey. Iím tryig to figure out how to install my bucket pins from the seat so I donít have to get off the tractor when I change front implements with the ďquick connect

    Why do You think I have never gotten rid of My Garden tractors. I have the Blade On the 2025R with the Artillian adapter on the Loader and the 47inch Blower is On the X748 so I don't Have to Take 5minutes Or More to change them Over. Heck I have have a 3rd Tractor the GX335 set Up with a smaller 48inch Blade Just to Plow My sidewalks In the front of the House so I don't Have to Get either walk Behind to remove snow there I have a single & a Two Stage Ariens walk behind Blowers. Use the single Mostly for Clearing the Trex deck off Only Place I truly have to walk

    BTW for the OP this is the Biggest Blower Mounted Blade I could Find Slush Plow (48) Snow Blower Plow Blade Attachment | I.M.A.C. Attachment SP 48 and here is there Main website Slush Plow | Snow Blower Accessories | Snow Blower Attachment for removing Slush and Sleet
