    Snow Plow Options for 3033R

    I had all but made up my mind that I would be purchasing a Kubota B2650 this spring after comparing all the options out there, but I still yearned for a larger frame. The Kubota L's were pretty bare bones and the 3 Family was simply out of the budget, until I found a minimally equipped 3033R for the same price as a well equipped B2650 or 2025R. With that said, I'll be picking it up this weekend and should prepare myself for winter duty. What are my options for a front plow for the 3033R?

    I'm in Ohio were we see a fair amount of snow some years and minimal snow in others (like this year), so I think a plow would be best. It will primarily maintain a 1000' sloped gravel drive and small concrete pad. I like the idea of a frame mounted plow vs loader mounted due to my fear of tweaking the loader arms. Maybe that is unwarranted. I'd love to hear your thoughts as I haven't been able to find much of anything for 3 Family tractors with snow plows.

    Hoya,

    The frame mounted 366 blade is a beast, it will plow 6 inches of ice without blinking an eye, snow isn't even a workout for it. I have had loader plows in the past and there is no comparison, you won't regret the 366 blade.

    Caution is justified, but with proper use have no fear of loader mounted options IMHO.

    Both Deere (Frontier) and a couple other makes/lines have JDQA loader plows in various sizes that should suit your new 3033 nicely, both in manual and hydraulic angle varieties. The smallest Frontier one would be 72" IIRC (there was one for sale here not that long ago). Places like Horst Snow (HLA aka Horst Welding from Canada) make them as well. I have a proper color matched JD green 60" version of their 1000 series. It was manual, but I converted it this fall to hydraulic as my cost was far less than theirs even including an Artillian diverter.

    Others have used their shop fab and welding skills to convert other truck plows for the task in both underbody/frame mount and loader mount.

    Good luck in your search, ask away if you need more info or have other questions.

    The 366 definitely sounds like the ticket. But I need to come up with some more uses for a 3pt on the front. It's quite an expense for attaching just one implement.

    Isn't there an issue with the 3-series "R" models when using a loader mounted plow? Something about the hydraulic system being in full-time re-gen mode? I can't find the previous thread but hopefully one of our resident hydraulics guru's can refresh our memories.

    That is a common reason so many opt for the loader, they are expensive, but second only to a 3pt hitch for versatility

    As a side step, you might use a rear blade, that would be the most economical way [I have a RB2072 on my 3046r/cab]

    If you've got the loader for your 3033R you might want to take it easy this season and try a set of Edge Tamers with your front bucket. Check-out the video in the link: Edge Tamer | R2 Manufacturing

    Plenty of folks get by plowing with their loaders.

    Edit: Oops. Just noticed that you already have a set! With one replacement "on the way!"

    Short answer: No.
    The 3-series tractors still have 4-way valves so regen is not active all the time, its seems the 4-series machines have the 3-way (regen active 100% of the time) valves now for some STUPID reason only some pencil pusher at JD can know. But the regen issue only comes into play anyway if a diverter is used anyway, the 3rd SCV would have no trouble on either machine.
