    Time to start thinking about snow

    I have started deciding what to purchase for snow season. I am down to three options. I am looking at system to mount to my H130 on my 2305. Prices don't have shipping but I am guessing that will net out. All units would have angling.

    Lowest cost at $1900 is EMP solution with electric angle kit. The residential customers only and no ram plowing warning on the thier product page has me a little worried.

    Middle solution is Horst HLA1000 with angle and hose kit. This thing looks like it is built like a rock it is $2,450

    Last solution is Deere 54 with Quick hitch mounted to Artillian bracket on thier fork backrest. That solution is in the $2,900 range. Of course I would have a snow plow and forks.

    Big decision. Any thoughts.

    What is this "snow" you speak of. No such thing here in East Tennessee.

    If you can afford it, go with the Artillian setup. That fork frame is like a Swiss army knife.

    I know you get a lot more snow UP NORTH than I do, but I would suggest you start with what I have and that is a rear blade and the loader bucket. I just drive over the snow and blade it to the side of the drive, then use the bucket to clean up such as at the road end of the drive. If the snow gets too much to drive over it, turn the blade around and back into the snow. If this works for you, you will have saved a lot of

    I have the Deere 54" plow mounted on the Artillian frame on my loader + the Artillian rubber wings. It works awesome.

    That said, if I were to do it again, I think I'd pass on the Deere plow and go with the CT Attachments 66" plow instead. It's wider, taller and beefier. But it isn't JDQA so you still need the QuickHitch to mount it on the Artillian frame.

    That's the plan for my gravel drive.
    I bought the tractor in February and didn't have that much snow to bother with then so I don't yet know how that will work.
    Guess I will find out in a few months.

    MeagerHair, If you don't already have forks you need to start there. IMO.
    I do like JimR's suggestion.
    For the record and IMO, hydraulics over electric,,,,every time.

    Thank you, I will check out the CT Attachments option. That is why I posted was to see what other ideas were out there. I also am considering the 3 pt loader and plow option. Issue is they said last year was a light snow year but we could have a winter and get hammered.
