I am looking for options for a front hydraulic push blade for a Kubota B3200 sized tractor. I can get one from Kubota but it is very pricey. Is there anything else out there that might work? Using it with the backhoe attached so rear blades are not really a good idea...

Front attachments tend to be proprietary and non-standard, so you'd likely be in for some modifications on the mounting brackets, lift device, and, if you need it, the angle mechanism. But you could see what there is for ATVs and garden tractors. ....

You could try a standard truck snow plow setup---but unless you're pushing light and fluffy material any front blade on a tractor is not going to work to good extent. I have a snow blade which I made rigid so it doesn't trip over on my 8000 lb skid steer. It is not good for any type of dirt work. And on a tractor it would be worse since the front wheels would be pushed the opposite direction the blade is turned.

Truly, a box blade IS the way to go. Just pull dirt rather than push it. ....
