Does anyone know of a kit or made thier own kit to mount a snowplow directly to the frame of a John Deere 4300 year 2001. I don't want to use the curtis attachment or attach to the bucket. I don't trust using the loader arms.

I bought the JD model 74 front blade which mounts to the frame and uses the front hydraulics. I'm real happy with it on my JD4310.

why dont you trust your loader arms? I use my loader arms for plowing & it's really nice because I can stack & put snow as high as the loader will lift & has lots of power. The laoder is also quick with raising & lowering.

i bought this tractor new and sense then the front loader arms seem to a little loose where they mount to the tractor. i have plowed with this machine using the bucket for 4 years and i would just feel better with it mounted to the frame. The plow i bought is a 8 ft. fisher. I might think different and find a lighter plow. just tired plowing with the bucket.

What are your thoughts/reasons for not using the FEL? I had planned to use my blower, but my drive is so step i have to scrap down to the snow all the time..

Just wondering if I'm missing something with using the loaders bucket. It does a really nice job.

I'll try and get a picture of my loader mount posted also. Darned camera is dead and it will likely be past sunset before it's charged up again.

The bucket does work quite well, especially with a Murphy Pipe on the bucket.

The only thing you have to be very careful of when using a FEL and the bucket for snow removal is there is nothing to absorb shock loads if the bucket edge catches something. My pipe idea gives it a smoother rounded edge less likely to snag, and a snow blade has a spring trip mechanism.

Best of luck.

I have a gravel driveway that seems to grow rocks and like muff pointed out the bucket has no shockassorbers. Maybe I am getting old because they are starting to hurt. I am going to try the muff pipe and if that works ,i might not even try the plow. After a few storms though it is not as bad , either the rocks leave or the driveway builds up a good base to cover the rocks. oh by the way no fair going to Maine snowmobiling.
