    Switching from snow plow to h120 loader

    Do any of you plow with the 54 " front blade and then switch back to loader for cleaning up around mailbox, big piles from county snowplow by the end of the driveway etc. ? if so.. How long would it take and what is the process?

    Haven't been through a winter with it yet, but I suspect I won't have to use the FEL much. With the full hydro front blade it should be easy to direct the snow with the blade. Only in the deepest snow can I see needing the loader. The biggest use of the FEL in the winter will be to pile the snow up for the kids snowfort.

    Did this alot last year. After 2 or 3 times I had it. To many things to change when its sooo cold out. I got the artillian plow adapter for my fork set. Now the change takes 2 mins with no heavy lifting. Costs a bit more but well worth it.

    Last year I needed to change from the plow to the loader after saying in the Fall, "I've never needed a loader before.... I'll just stash it behind the barn!" Well, after 2 10"+ storms days apart that contained a bunch of sleet and frozen rain, I needed the loader to make a safety path around the house.

    IF.... IF.... IF you have the loader removal/installation sequence down pat and know how to hook up the plow, it's all fairly simple and, like stated above, 10min. or less. Of course, if you are like me and have to dig your loader out from behind the shop ("barn") by hand through 20" of "glacier", then it may take you a bit longer.

    FWIW, when I first got my loader, BH and front plow I made quick note "cheat sheet cards" of the sequences for "off-on" so I didn't have to drag out the manual every time. After a couple removals and installations it goes easily and if you do forget, the cards are in the tool box.

    I have to pull the quick hitch to get the loader on. If you "adjust" your loader stand you won't have to. That would speed things up a fair amount ...
