 Curtis plow

Good morning to all this woooonderfulllll Christmas weekend! I have been trying to piece together a loader blade and found an old manual turn Western plow but would need to have the attachment fabricated for my Boomer. Also, the owner can't make up his mind how much he wants for it. I checked with my dealer and he quoted me a price of 2k for a Curtis plow and said the machine would have to be hauled and some welding done to fit the plow to the loader. Another local implement dealer has a Curtis plow for $1575. (with hydro-turn) and states that if we order it for my 7308 loader, the unit is ready to pin into place on the loader arms. He has never sold one, and is going strictly by their catalogue. I have e-mailed Curtis and not received an answer. Can anyone fill in the blanks here? I would like to know before it is ordered, as welding will involve more expense and time. I plan on buying a 3pt blower next year from Meteor in Canada, but for now, the blade would work the best (too many large stones in the driveway and I pan on re-grading and laying down 1a's in the spring. Thanks.

Cutter, Check out the Curtis Website www.curtiscab.com. You can see the loader blades there. It does not appear that any welding is required to attach to most loaders. The spec pages show you can get them for loaders with standard or quick-attach buckets. The differences in price quotes from your 2 dealers may be a result of differenct specs such as blade width and optional hydraulic blade angling. I have a similar 6 foot John Deere blade for Model 420 loader. It listed for $1200 with manual angling. Works great.

Thanks Jack, I have been to that site and they give the prices as well. I don't understand why one dealer tells me the mounting brackets have to be welded to the push bar and the other says they are ready to go when shipped to you. It doesn't say anything about that on the website. I'm wondering if my tractor dealer buys them in quantity and then has to modify to fit certain loaders. The plow size was the same at both places and both are hydro-turn. The other dealer is quoting me $1375 for the 6 1/2' manual angle.

My experience with Curtis snowplows is the mounting tabs are NOT welded to the frame, but shipped loose. This isn't to say they can't be ordered ready to pin on, just that I have never seen it.

I just checked out the Curtis Cab web site. The following is a cut and paste from the web site: 1FELB2
JD 4000 & 5000 SERIES QUICK ATTACH
BRACKET (WELDING REQ.). It appears that welding is required.

Thanks Larry! It appears that the Curtis loader blade requires fabricating/welding even when ordered for a specific loader, odd as it may seem. I don't understand that. If that is the case, one might be just as well off having the attachment bracketing made and finding a used blade and push bar for a couple hundred bucks.

A picture really is worth a 1000 words ! I have a Curtis blade on a JD 430 loader. It would have fit from the factory but would have required removing the quik-tach for the bucket gizmos. Pin pulling etc. My dealer for a charge welded a quik-tach set up to the hydro turn blade. It comes off and on just like the bucket. Easy. It's a set up similar to how you would mount it on a skid steer. I have a crushed rock road and with proper shoe adjustment and a sharp eye it works great. Curtis can put a blade on anything and a good dealer should be able to work with them and you. Good Luck.

Are you saying Runner, that the normal pin type bracketing is already welded to the push bar? My dealer sells N/H tractors exclusively and stated on two different ocasions that the machine had to be transported to his shop and the brackets welded to the push bar. The implement dealer on the other hand, doesn't find anything in his sales literature to confirm this and thinks it will bolt up. I will find out before buying one, something smells fishey here.

Yes there is welding required with the Curtis set-up. The plates that you put the pins into to attach the blade to the loader frame have to be matched to the loader. The blade's they build are of good strength and I like the idea of the final fit being done to the loader at the time of installation. All to often someone is off a bit at the factory and you have to change something anyway.
