    Front snow blade question

    Hello All!

    Recently bought a used 2015 1025R with 36 hours on it. I love the tractor. It came with a bagger system, which is currently taking space up in the garage. If your in Michigan, and would be interested in it let me know! But the reason I am posting, I'm looking for everything I need to mount a front snow blade on the tractor. I know I know its rather early, but I'd rather be prepared, then trying to put it all together during hunting season. Does anyone have a parts list for the front snow blade. Sorry if this has already been discussed.

    Thanks in advanced

    Paul

    Welcome!!

    Do you want to mount a blade on your front loader or do you want to mount it directly to the tractor?

    Thanks for the Welcomes. Look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Driveshaft- I live north of Detroit an hour, I went to school in Big Rapids.

    Mark- Good Question. I want to mount it directly to the tractor. For my driveway, I think this is the best route to go.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    See my post here that I did in January 2019. I listed the part numbers and some helpful info. I just checked and the prices are still the same today. I did the 60" blade but a 54" is also available from Deere. And welcome from Grass Lake

    One hand man, welcome to the forum. You値l find the experience of the forum members invaluable.

    If your sure you want a tractor mounted snow plow I知 confident you値l get the answers you need quickly.

    I went with a plow that mounts in place of the bucket on the FEL and I知 very pleased with it. If you change your mind and are interested in an FEL mounted plow I値l be happy to share my experience.

    Kylew, Nice write up. I do like the 60" blade. How does your 1 series push the snow?

    Sportshot. i'm not opposed to listening on your experience of a FEL snow blade. I can change my mind rather easily, that is why i'm starting to look now. I really would like power angle, growing up I plowed with a manual angling blade on the back of a "orange" tractor. I think i'm just worried about the cracks in my concrete driveway.

    I have the Frontier AF10 5 foot loader mounted plow. I have had it two winters and use it on the gravel driveway of my lake home. It's taken me two winters to learn how to use it. It's a battle maintaining steering. Using it in float is out of the question so you are not going to scrape a concrete driveway clean. If the snow is heavy you can't really take a full cut with the blade angled or it will just push the front end to the side. I plow with the gauge shoes pretty high and leave some snow to pack down. It does have the advantage of being able to raise the loader and push back piles of snow. I'm not thrilled about it, but it does what I need it to do and is pretty cost effective.

    I did just put Rimgaurd in all 4 tires and I think that will be helpful. I had rear ballast but nothing on the front.

    Snow pushers are the thing now and that is likely what I would look at if I didn't have this. Might not be so great on the long driveway but I would give it a look.

    RS America, those are some of the reasons why I think i want to go to a front snow blade frame mounted. My worries about a box type pusher is the tractor not having enough wait to make a long push.

    I'm looking to buy a snow blade before this winter also. These lists are far from complete but the highlights of my research so far. There's 2 primary directions you can go. One is with the Deere Quick Hitch. This uses the same blades and snow blowers as the X700 series.

    Deere 54 Quick Hitch Snow Blade Installation & Review (Tractor Time with Time on Youtube)

    Pros-
    • Doesn't need a 3rd hydraulic circuit to angle the blade
    • Can easily switch between snow blower and snow blade (Note: If you have the drive over auto PTO connect for your mower deck you need to remove that adapter from the tractor before connecting the snow blower PTO)


    Cons-
    • A bit more manual labor involved on the install.
    • Blade lift is limited if you need to push tall piles.




    The other option is to replace the loader bucket with a plow blade. Deere and several 3rd parties offer this type blade.

    Pros-
    • Minimal labor involved
    • Blade can go full height of FEL to push tall piles


    Cons-
    • Needs 3rd hydraulic circuit to angle blade unless you want to do that manually. Deere and several 3rd party options available
    • Snow blower options limited to rear 3PH or going with the quick hitch snow blower above. (In which case, might as well go with the QH Blade)
