 Rear blade question

We are looking at a 24 horse power tractor with Hydro. I would like a back blade, we will be doing landscaping, snow and road/driveway work for about 1200'. We live in Mid lower MI.

Any thoughts on size and model? How about price?

Thanks
KC

I use a LandPride 84" on my 45 HP tractor. I have been happy with the quality of the LandPride. I think that a 60" unit would be about the right size for your tractor.

 Rear blade question

I run a 84" King Kutter (professional series) rear blade on my 35 HP tractor and I'm happy with it.
Stay away from the KK light duty $200 blades, my opinion.
The "professional series" King Kutter back blades are far better made and heavier duty blade.

 Rear blade question

I have a Deere 4115 (24 HP) that I am very pleased with.

I think I would be just as happy with a Kubota B2710 or a B2910, except my Deere has a quick detach bucket which allows me to change to a very useful set of pallet forks in about a minute.

 Rear blade question

I run a Woods RB72 72" blade on my 24 HP Kubota B7610 and it works great for light snow removal.

 Rear blade question

Yes I have done some grading / smoothing using the blade rotated 180 degrees for dragging which works pretty good. A blox scrapper is probably better for that use, but I just made due with the blade and it was OK. Position control would be nice but for back dragging the blade you don't need it.

I have about the same size drive and I would not recommend the the rear blade for snow removal. I only use it to push slush or remove compacted snow, or light snow falls that are too little for my front mount snow blower which is awesome.

 Rear blade question

I have a NH TC 24DA (24hp) with a 60" Woods back blade and a 54" Land Pride box scrapper. I like the box scrapper better for most dirt work. Did not have any snow last winter so have not used the back blade for snow removal yet.

Dennis, my plan was to remove snow with loader and back blade turned around. We don't get enough snow for the cost of a snow blower.

 Rear blade question

If you have a flat drive that combination may be an adequate solution for you. But it won't be a neat solution as you will be compacting snow quite a bit from riding over it with the tractor. This may cause you to have to apply sand /salt etc.....for traction.

I am sure you know that a loader will not work anything like a snow plow on a truck and will just bunch up the snow in front of it. If it is wet snow it gets heavy pretty quick. If the snow is deep you may not be able to drive straight down the drive, but instead have to clear it in diagonal slices, with lots of backing up.

The other thing is that both the loader and blade have no give in them like the springs in a truck plow, so if you hit something solid you can get hurt, particularly if you are going fast. So you need to go slowly and carefully.

Nonetheless, the loader and blade combination is a good place to start as you will find many uses for it.
