    Yes it is a JD CUT carrier.

    We fill there is no concern with loader damage due to the fact that the weight of the box is only 110 lbs. and 60" wide. If you had a 72" 500 push it would be a concern due to the extra weight.

    As with anyting else, we stand behind what we sell. Thanks

    There is always a concern if abused. You can wreck anything.

    However this isn't a dirt/gravel blade. It's for snow, snow is far less dense, weighs less and pushes with far less friction than dirt... Also, how much forward "pushing" do you do while digging, loading your bucket and scooping up material in your loader bucket? I'll bet it's more than you realize, the loader system is designed for both lifting and forward pushing IMHO, if it weren't it wouldn't be very usable!

    FWIW, I have a loader mount plow that I love for my H130 and 2032r-it gets me thru the terrible snow and winters we have had here in MI the last couple years.
