 Snow plow

Greetings All, Having seen a few post on plowing snow I was wondering if anybody had any good advice on mounting a snow plow to a loader. I came across a used Meyers plow with hyd. angle for $200.00 today and yes it even works. I am looking for ideas on how to best mount this in place of my bucket. This forum is a wealth of knowledge and I hope someone can help me out here. The blade is 6'6" wide so I think I may cut it down to 5', I'll try it the way it is first to see how I get along. Any information will be deeply appreciated....Thanks!Cliff

Hi Cliff,
I have mounted numerous jeep or 7 1/2' blades in the buckets of tractors. I prefer the meyers or western blades beacaues the fisher or diamond are too heavy hanging out of the bucket of the smaller tractors. The best way I found was to use 2 pieces of 1/4 - 3/8 3" or 4" angle iron. drill a 1/2 to 3/4 hole in them & weld into the bucket far enough in to allow angling bbut not to far out. then put a hook on the top of the bucket for the lift chain. leave enuff slack in chain to allow blade to float w/ the buckket about 6" off the ground.
as for the angling, you can use the dump spool on the loader valve for as you won't need it once you get the bucket level. b.o.l Jim

Hello Jim,
Thanks for the impute. You answered my next question about using the angle. I was thinking a guy might have to split the hydraulics but I believe your idea would be much simpler. Thanks!

Cliff

Jim- I think that you are putting snow blades onto buckets with the bucket still attached and the blade operates much as it does on a pickup. That is hydraulic lift and the wieght of the blade to lower. Clearence between the ground and the blade in the up position will only be about a foot or so unless the bucket is also lifted. The weight of the bucket with the blade attached then becomes pretty significant. If the bucket is removed and the blade is attached to a framework of angle iron ,similar to the frame that mounts under a pickup, then the even a smaller tractor should be able to handle the weight. I'm guessing the weight would be somewhere about 500-700-lbs. I think the lift capacity of a 4100 is about 700-800-. The advantage of eliminating the bucket is less weight,downpressure on the blade when not in float position and a usefull blade in high positions. There is a "sag" due to the weight of the blade stuck out so far,and this puts strain on the bucket curl hydraulic pistons. This is eliminate with a short piece of heavy chain between the blade frame and the center round cross bar on the loader arms. {jd 440 loader}a chain hook is welded to the cross bar and a keyhole slot is cut into the frame of the blade. The weight sag is significant and the chain is necessary or the curl hydraulic cylinders get hammered. Cliff didn't say his brand of tractor so it is tough to go any further. Either way verbal descriptions are never adequate. A picture or a example is almost a must. Once you see it, it's,"boy is that simple"type of thing. bo

Bo- My tractor is a 1320 New Holland. The loader is a 7208 New Holland with a 68" bucket. With this large of a bucket weight is deffinitely an issue. In my case taking the bucket off would be much better. Don Denning suggested I find a quick attach mounting bracket and build from there. Does anyone know if New Holland offers such a thing or is there an after market source. I did not see anything in their options listing. Pictures would be great! Thanks!

Cliff

CURTIS SNOW PLOW FOR LOADER
I just priced a snow plow for attachment to a NH 7308 loader at a NH dealer.
78 inch was $1250. Remove the bucket and attach to loader frame. Looks like a
well designed unit, manual angle setup, springs for shock absorbing.

Hi Bo,
I appreciated your concerns. You'll notice I prefer the "lighter" snowplow blades/ your avg. 6' meyer jeep or light suv blade only weighs 290 to 400
lbs. as for the bucket, you mount the blade in the bucket as far as it will go w/out affecting the angle minimizing the leverage on the bucket. if the top of the bucket is weak, a 12'' section of angle or channel will improve this. weld hook on add'l steel. Have you ever tried plowing a icy, uneven, dirt road or driveway w/down pressure on your blade, & less wight on the frt. wheels?? not much fun & frustrating. the "floating blade" on a chain works better & is not as detrimental to the surface you are plowing. I have istalled over 35 of these setups most on compacts, several on TLB's,some on farm tractors w/ grat success

cliff, the Curtis blade is a good set-up, you can build your own w/ a used power angle blade for much less

Bo: Thanks for the ideas about blade weight and buckets.

It sounds like attaching a blade onto a bucket might be a thing to avoid if
possible. Anyway, I never have figured out why anybody would want to give up
a loader bucket during the winter. Perhaps tropical sorts who never have to
stack snow have different ideas.

Jim...The Curtis outfit is indeed slick. At present I will have $200.00 invested in the plow with power angle and perhaps another $100.00 or so for mounting. I am discovering that building things for your tractor is half the fun. I'll put the savings towards a new tiller!

Cliff
