 PUSHING SNOW

I LIVE IN CONNECTICUT AND PLAN ON BUYING A B2710 WITH A FRONT END LOADER AND AG TIRES.I SEE CURTIS MAKES A LOADER BLADE THAT YOU CAN PUT ON IN PLACE OF THE BUCKET. HOW WELL DO THESE WORK? I HAVE A 750' GRAVEL DRIVEWAY. DOES A REAR BLADE WORK BETTER? ANY THOUGHTS WOULD BE HELPFUL.

 PUSHING SNOW

Fred,I live in W Mich in a lake effect snowbelt area. While I have a NH1520 with front blower and rear blade, a relative has a MF1230 on which he uses a Curtis hydro-turn blade and a Woods rear 3pt blower. While i prefer my setup for my drive, my brother-inlaw prefers his. He has a longer drive like you indicate. The front blade works well, it looks like it hangs out front quite a ways and would tend to push the frontend sideways, but it doesn't seem to be a problem at all. After he makes a pass, or two, up and down the drive, he uses the blower to knock down any banks, and he is done. For his drive, it is faster than a front blower and moves more snow farther than a rear blade. He does have the rear tires loaded. (He had a KU L245DT with front blower and rear lade before the 1230, so he knows both ways, and likes the front blade better and is very happy with the Curtis. For my drive though, I'm sticking with my setup.

Fred: You do NOT want to plow a driveway that big with a rear blade. Your chiropractor will charge you more to fix the 'crick' in your neck than it would cost you to have someone plow it for you!!!Find an old snow blade from a large garden tractor (many dealers will almost give them away) and have a local welding shop make a mount that will fit your loader, your neck muscles will thank you for it !!
