i am getting ready to purchase a 2305 i am just trying to decide which blade to get...there is about a 900.00 difference w/ the front blade being more expensive...i will pay the extra money if needed but want to see if it is neccesary...will a rear blade do the job just as well?

A front blade is the way to go, With a rear blade you drive over and pack the snow before it is removed. If you reverse the blade you will have to back up all the time for a clean sweep. ....

One thing to consider is how much snow you get and how does it sit? If it's conducive to plowing with a front mount plow, that's the way to go. I'm on a hill top. So the main section of my drive is usually blown clear by wind. The upper section has big drifts. I need a loader to move and pile that as a front plow would struggle once the banks are built up. Plus my gravel is too big (previous owner's mistake) so a front plow would move a ton of rock.

Think about how your snow lies, drifts, etc. Where will you put it? Do you need to lift it? Etc.
