 re Front blade for 430 loader

I was flipping through my literature and the john deere website and I found an a front blade attachment for the 430 loader, it was listed with the 4in1 bucket, pallet forks, etc. Has anyone ever seen this blade?Is it hyrdralic angle? Does anyone use one?If so what is the msrp? It sounds like a good tool for snow removal. Thanks for the help

Johnno:

You might also want to check the Curtis Tractor Cab website, and they make blades for use with FEL also.

 re Front blade for 430 loader

I have read the blades for the 4210-4710 series have an hydraulic angle feature. I have a front blade for my 4115 but it is a different set-up from its big brothers.

Unlike my blade the 42-4710 blades attach to the loader brackets with the bucket removed. Curtis uses a similar system but I think the blades are much bigger and believe it or not, they might be more expensive than the Deere product.

 re Front blade for 430 loader

A curtis blade for you would be 6 wide, and cost about $1500(MSRP) with the hydro angle feature. Plus another $240 for the quick change brakets for the 430 loader and the cost to have them welded on. You also need to run the hydro lines on the loader from the blade to the connection point on the tractor. I have a curtis blade on my 955. It is a very heavy duty blade. Defendly get the power angle. I paid $1532 for the plow and hydro lines installed on my tractor.

 re Front blade for 430 loader

Does anybody know of any reason I couldn't adapt a 54" front snow blade to the 410 loader on my 4115 to work like the 420 and up blades?

I am not sure I know what you are asking so I'll try this....

Deere's snow blade for the 4115 is less expensive than the set-up for the 4210 and I think it is very easy to attach and detach.

If you want a snow blade that will attach to the loader brackets, then I think you will have to look at the Curtis product.

I've looked at the JD loader mounted blades at the dealership.What I want to do is take a 54" snow blade of any brand cut it behind the pivot point and adapt it to my loader just like the factory blades.

 re Front blade for 430 loader

If it's any help in decision making, we run 7.5' blades on 40 hp machines commercially, they will push a FULL blade of snow with little effort. In fact the kubota GST units we run will easily push a full (angled) 7.5' blade in 8th gear and wide open throttle. We run regular pickup truck blades customized (cut the A-frame shorter) to fit the QT bracket.

Based on experience, you really only need about 5hp (gross engine) per foot of blade for snow clearing.

Best of luck.

The stock front blade for the 41xx tractors replaces the FEL and therefore can use the vacated dual SCV ports to raise/lower and angle.

I am sure you could fabricate what you are contemplating but you would need a third set of hydraulic ports and another control valve if you want power angling.
