 John Deere 25HP snow plowing

After using a 30 HP HST JD at work, I am thinking that a similar tractor would do great plowing snow. (No clutch to burn up.) Does anybody do this? I am thinking about a 23- 28 HP with a blade just wider (angled) than the wheel base.

I use a Deere 4115 (24 HP/HST) and a front blade for snow removal.

The tractor is 1700 pounds base weight and does well with a 54-60 inch blade.

I don't want to a be a wet blanket here buuuut it's not always cut-and-dry if it will work. (I do [did] commercial snow plowing with trucks) Factors to consider: 4 wheel drive, ground/pavement conditions, tire selection, rear wheel weights, rear ballast box or rear blade, type and depth of snow. Another option is to use a FEL with a blade attached to it (picture a truck snow plow mounted inside the FEL bucket). Then you have ask is all that not as good as a blower (front or rear).

But I'm jis' sayin'...

Yup. What he said. But we are talking snow plowing in Texas.

Maybe, kinda, sorta........

If he was plowing snow in up-state NY, Montana or Alaska I mighta thrown in a few proviso's.

But TX is not known for heavy sustained snowfalls that might overpower a small(60"Wink yeah right blade. I know they can get wind-blown drifts there, but that is a problem that can be addressed with a FEL.

I suspect his snowfall patterns are similar to the high plains where I live and a proper plow on a 24 horse tractor works well here.

But I'm just sayin........

 John Deere 25HP snow plowing

Okay guys, here's the deal: I lived in Colorado for most of my life, and spent a bunch of time on top, and undernieth an 70's era, 20 HP tractor, mostly doing haying. About a year ago I moved to a new job in Texas and which came with a whole bunch of new equipment, one of which is a 27 HP JD. The 27 HP tractor has hydrostatic trans- which I had never used before- and after spending a little time on it, I started thinking it would do great in snow. Tight turning radius, 4X4, locking diff, However, no cab. But right about now the no cab thing isnt bothering me. So I am doing my time in Texas and have decided when I make back over Raton Pass, I will be towing my own tractor behind me. I'm looking at spending around $15000 for a 25 HP, hydro, 4X4, FEL, with commercial tires. (I realize I will need to spend a little more than that to get a plow on it.) 13 GPM hydraulic pump (for a wood splitter I plan on making) would also be nice, but it's not a must. I don't think JD is the manufactuer for me. (I have alot of there stuff, little problems with everything.) I'm considering Kabota, Kioti, and Yanmar.

If you're still in the market for a loader mounted blade, check out our website. We make blades and other attachments that fit 25-200hp tractors. Out blade is designed for dirt work, but also works in the snow. This way, you have something to use for the other 363 days of the year that it doesn't snow in Texas! Hope to hear from you soon!

... on the other hand, if a topic comes up often a vendor shouldn't tag onto every thread selling their goods. That probably would engender bad will and work against them.
