 Plow for 7510

I'm interested in getting a Curtis power angle blade for my 7510. I talked to one dealer about it who said it's way too heavy -- and he proceeded to try and sell me a bigger tractor. The plow weighs 470 pounds; well within the load capacity for the 302 loader, but I realize that the plow puts the weight much further out front than the bucket.

I have a 500 foot gravel drive that is on a bit of a slope and a roughly 30x30 parking area (also gravel). Other than snow removal, the 7510 is a perfect size tractor for my land and my needs.

I want to have easy access to the bucket in the winter (for the horse manure) hence the idea of attaching a plow to the loader arms. I'm not intersted in a snowblower unless it is truly my only option.

Right now, while the house is under construction, I'm using the loader and a 6' backblade to remove snow -- it works, but I think there must be a better way.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

 Plow for 7510

You would find that the distance out the front of the tractor for the blade would push the front to the side while angled. There would be a lot of lerverage on the front. You might try a small snow buncher like a 60 inch on a q-tach mount and convert the other bucket as well.

I'm not sure what a snow buncher is. I assume it replaces the bucket and is fixed in position (no angle). Would I be able to pile snow with it?

Thanks for the insight!

I call them snow bunchers which I don't know is the proper terminalogy but they are a straight blade with the wings on them like used in big parking lots and with a loader you can push up a pile by tilting them back while raising against the pile.. They do make small ones as well as large and they are quite easy to use.

My 4115 is bigger, heavier and make more ponies than your 7510.

A blade in the 54-60 inch range is all I can handle, especially if the snow is wet and heavy. When too much snow builds up in front of the plow it pushes the tractor sideways along the axis of the plow angle.

A six foot blade would be much worse and a seven foot blade would be unusable.

Get a snow blade that will clear out your tracks when angled to the extreme but not much bigger.
