 Snowblower or Loader for todays Storm

Ok, I still have my loader on and have the choice of just putting on the grader blade for todays' snow and icy mix.

It is a tough call as once I put the blower on the loader choice is done for the season. With heavy dense ice pellets I think the loader might be able to break it up better.

HMMMMMM wish I did it yesterday when it was warmer though with 20 mile an hour winds.

The local farmers were out with their combines most of the night trying to beat the storm to harvest the corn yesterday. The weather has been wet and gray for weeks now and yesterdays 2 hours of sun from 4PM til dark was a rarity.

 Snowblower or Loader for todays Storm

Back in my Alaska days, I never had much luck with icy, wet, heavy snow and blowers.

Sounds like a blade type job to me.

 Snowblower or Loader for todays Storm

Well in CT today (12-13-07) temp is below freezing and the snow is really coming down. My Kubota setup for the snow is: FEL mounted versus the front snow plow blade and a Woods RB72 rear blade. This I hope will do fine. I do have a gravel driveway and as much as I want the Kubota front mount snow blower the gravel drive is just not conducive with a blower.

So we will see how good this setup works since this will be the first time using it in the snow.

 Snowblower or Loader for todays Storm

In northwest NJ I have a couple of inches of frozen dense crystals, forecast is for this to continue and change to snow after dark with acumulations from 5 - 8. Looks like I am about to add the RB72 to the B7610 and do it with the loader and blade.

The trees are starting to ice up, hope we don't lose power. Got the wood stove going but no electric backup for the well, time to fill a bath tub I guess.

Put the driveway markers up yesterday while it was mild just beforre dark. Waited so long because the oak trees were still coming down and still are.

I better go out to the garage and move all the stuff (towable Leaf blower, pressure washer, 33 ton wood splitter, front snow blower, 60 inc mower deck on Larrys moweraxles) so I can get to the RB72 blade.

Dennis:
Yep we all go with the RB72 in combination with the FEL. Being the width of the front bucket is slightly narrower than the rear blade, you can get more unit pressure on the ice and poke through it. The ice storm mostly missed us but I got a bunch of gas for the generators just in case as well as full propane tanks for Mr. Heater.

 Snowblower or Loader for todays Storm

Dennis CTB,

My uncle was one of those guys who was prepared for anything. He had stuff that most people had never thought of for which to make it through a natural disaster.

However, he forgot something very important, and he's since learned his lesson.

During a severe ice storm in the mid-80s, everyone lost their electrical power for several days. My uncle was one of the few people who had a PTO powered generator. However, it was on a pallet located in the far back of his shop, and all of his farm equipment was parked in front of it. In order to move the equipment so that he could get to the generator, he would first have to open the 16' overhead shop door.......which was powered by electricity. OH OH...now what?

After disconnecting the mechanical closer from the door, he was able to get the door open with his Bobcat skid loader.......but only a few feet. He couldn't open it completely, as the Bobcat wouldn't raise it fully open.

It takes a lot of human muscle power to lift a generator and carry over the top of combine headers, swather headers, mowers, balers, etc.......but we did it.

That generator now sits in the front of the shop, and there's a small human powered door for which to gain access to it. We all learn from our mistakes......often the hard way.

_________________________

Don't know if you'll be able to use the blade to push the snow, since you have so little traction available on that ice. You might have to resort to using the blower.

Joel

Dennis,

Same situation here but not much ice hit, just heavy snow. I won't install the blower until winter really settles in and I have a good base on the stone driveway. The rear blade with the Western plow skid shoes along with the loader will do fine in this weather.

Saturday we have a major event predicted. Depending upon the temperature and volume of snow, I may think about mounting the blower at some point during or after that. Since it sits in my barn I really don't have to struggle with the weather factor when mounting, so I can be choosy Smile

Cutter,

Is that a front blower? If so have you ever had the front blower subframe on with the loader installed?

Dennis if you look at Photo #7 under my profile you can see my Kubota B7800 with the FEL, BH and the front snow blade/ snow blower subframe attached. The subframe needs to be removed when the Mid Mount Mower is attached. Kubota did a nice job with implement engineering.
