 L3010 for snow removal

I'm happily a new L3010 owner embarking upon using a tractor for snow removal. The terrain is narrow and hilly here in VT and I'm looking for advice on methods and technique; back blade, loader, snowblower (front or rear) etc. Thanks for any help.

Grande

 L3010 for snow removal

I live in upstate NY, with some hills and use a rear mounted snow blower on my L3710. For years I plowed with a truck, the only thing I miss is the heated cab. I went with a rear blower for several reasons, 1) it cost 50% less than a smaller front blower, 2) size, the front mount was 59", my rear mount is 78" 3) I did not want to give up the FEL, it's great for clearing out the mailbox, pulling the snow back from the garage, etc.

 L3010 for snow removal

I've given much thought to a rear mounted snow blower but get a stiff neck thinking about going in reverse that much. My road is steep and narrow. The $$$ that go with a front mounted device are equally intimidating. What about a rear blade in conjunction with a FEL bucket?

 L3010 for snow removal

A steep narrow drive might require chains to get enough traction. A snow blower might be OK without chains. Tire type doesn't make a lot of difference to traction on ice. No type is particularly good.

Including my neighbour's place, I use a 3ph blower on about 400' of drive not including parking areas. My drive is frozen gravel during the winter and my neighbour’s is asphalt. Neither are very steep and the traction is fine in 4wd using turf tires and no chains. There can be a lot of snow during a season here and using a blade would present a problem of where to push the snow so there's enough space to keep it until spring.

I haven't had a neck problem using the blower but I know it does slow me down. In light snows, I'm not willing to drive as fast in reverse as the blower is capable of clearing. I might want a front mounted blower for very long drives, but I don't think I'd like to give up my loader to do it. The loader is very useful even when using a blower.

 L3010 for snow removal

I'll answer my own post:
I was just researching this and found a front mounted blade
(much like on pickup trucks)that attach to the FEL.
I thought this was pretty cool and may get one this winter.
(do a web search for this product)I agree a front mount snowblower is damn $$$.
The fella next door uses a rear blade and once the snow gets to deep can't push it to the side because of the rear wheel so think hard about that application.He hates the rig and never gets a clean job.Gets stuck alot too.

I use any 8’ Fisher power angle on a 3710, the angle hooks up to the remote for the 4in1. It's mounted on a Quik-Tach plate so the bucket comes off. It’s got real good reach and will make quite a pile.

You must know what the capacity of the loader is, maybe you could use a used plow off a Jeep or half ton, 6’ or 7’. If you get the push frame with it mount the pin receiver on the bottom of the bucket.

I don’t know what your budget is but spend the money on comfort, Curtis makes some goood stuff, their headquarters is here in MA, but good stuff is pricy. They make some real nice cabs and heaters. I got a cab on mine, too many years with the old 10 hp Simplicity with the blower and snow stuck all me.

Dave
