 Another dumb 855 question

Does anyone know what model snow blade will fit the 855? I can't find this information anywhere. Looking for something I can take the FEL off and mount the blade on the front.
Thanks again.
Alan

Speaking of dumb questions, why wouldn't you just mount the blade in place of the bucket ON the FEL.

It is far handier that way.

Best of luck.

 Another dumb 855 question

See. I told you I was dumb. I didn't know I could. So I could take the bucket off and put a blade where the bucket was on that tractor?

I am so new to this compact tractor and know very little about what options are available to me.

 Another dumb 855 question

My grandfather used to tell me the only dumb question was one you DID NOT ask, because you couldn't learn anything from it.

It is very common to put a blade on the FEL in place of the bucket, there are several companies that make them, but I suspect more people go the 'home-brewed' method as I have. Cost is the biggest factor, most 'bought' units are in the $2,000+ category, you can generally get a used truck plow for under $500.

If you look at my picture # 18 you will see a strip at the bottom of the multi-pupose bracket on my FEL where the paint was worn off from the plow mount. I run a 7.5' Meyers blade from a pickup truck on mine.

Curtis are probably the best known of the FEL plow makers, below is a link to their site.

Best of luck.
