 Adapting a Snowplow to Kubota B2910

In the past I have used an old 7 foot Fisher connected to a custom made clamp in the bucket.

The problem has been that the plow is way to heavy and sticks out too far. This plow blade has to weigh over 500 lbs.

Has anyone adapted something like a 6' Fisher/Meyers to the front of a B2910. I could buy one from Kubota but they want over 2K for the rig.

I found a 6' plow I could use that is far lighter maybe 300 lbs.

Regards,
Chris

Chris, if you REPLACE the bucket with the blade for the winter you will find a huge difference, just bring it in a few feet makes an enormous difference in the handling and lifting ability.

Best of luck.

Murf,
I assume your talking about a Curtis type rig.

Curtis is about 20 miles from my house. They sell a unit for about 1275.00 but you have to remove the bucket wrist pins and pull the bucket off. If you want power angle you have to put a 3rd valve on the tractor.

I was looking to do a frame mount with power lift and angle using the existing loader valve with the loader off the machine.

That way if you want to put the bucket back on it takes 2 minutes.

Regards,
Chris

Deere has just such a rig. Kubota's are a little tougher.

Chris, I was talking about a Curtis-type setup, but you do not need a 3rd valve to achieve power angling, you just need to block the bucket curl cylinders and divert the hydraulics to the angle circuit.

If you have a quick-tatch setup this is a VERY easy changeover, we do it all the time, if you don't have a quick-tatch maybe this is the excuse you need, they're usually only a few hundred dollars.

The main advantage of mounting the blade on the loader is because it gives you outstanding visibility & stacking capabilities, plus the loader adds downpressure to the blade if it is set up right.

Best of luck.

Murf,
A Curtis loader blade without the curl circuit is just short of useless. When you lift tha loader arms to push off the top of a snowbank the plow would be sticking stright up in the air.

I have neighbors witht he Curtis loader blade and they say if you do it you need the third valve.

regards,
chris
