 Snow Blower shoot operation

I have an L3010 HST tractor. I found a 60 inch 3PH snow blower that I may want to buy. This blower has a hydraulic ram to turn the blower shoot in the direction you want the snow to blow. The problem is I do not have a rear set of hydraulic connections to hook up the lines to. I could disconnect the lines that go to my bucket on the loader and hook the shoot lines to the bucket connectors. I would still be able to operate the loader up and down but wouldn't be able to dump the bucket unless I hooked the lines up again. I want to leave the loader on the tractor as I may need it to move some piles around etc. Has anyone had any experience using this type of set up to move snow and if so how big of a pain in the butt is it. I know the ideal would be to install rear hydralic connections but this would cost me $1200.00 Can. I could also take the hydraulic mover off and replace it with the hand crank but then I don't know how easy it would be to reach down over the back of the seat to turn the crank. I would likely have to keep lifting the blower up so that I could reach the crank. I have R-4 24 inch rear tires on the tractor so it's fairly high. Also with these R-4's the width of the tractor is about 64 inches vs. the 60 inch width of the blower. I think it's close enough that it won't be a problem but of course I won't know until I try it. The tractor is only rated for a 60 inch. I could try a 66 inch but am afraid I'd be under powered. This board has been a great resource to me. Thanks to anyone who can help me out.

Ya might try a selector valve. Shouldn't be awfully expensive, and it can be plumbed in such a way as to switch the output of your bucket tilt valve to the ram on the blower chute. Then you'd just have to flip the selector between 'chute' and 'bucket'.

 Snow Blower shoot operation

I have exactly the same set up as you, but I do have a rear hydraulics pair. My turfs track several inches wider than my 60" blower, but it hasn't been a problem. If it's at all possible, I'd get some rear hydraulics. I do disconnect the bucket cult with my 3ph pallet forks, which need both a lift and a carriage tile circuit. However, I then only use the bucket for ballast, and it's not too much of a problem to reconnect it if I need the bucket dump. For snow removal, I use both the blower and the loader a lot. In several places, I clear parking areas by plowing forward and blowing backward along the same cut. I need the bucket dump repeatedly. I also wouldn't want to be unable to change the chute direction on the fly. For example, I blow the drive along the house, and the chute has to be away from the house. Then, some car/truck parking comes up on the other side, so I have to blow straight back for 20'-30í, and then can point it to either side (depending on wind direction). I canít imagine doing this without hydraulic chute control. Instant chute control also is indispensable since I blow a highway entrance. You can't be putting snow on the highway or allow it to blow across traffic.

I agree with Paul that there probably are less expensive ways to get a rear hydraulic pair. Extra control valve sections are available for some spooling valve assemblies. With open centred systems, additional entire assemblies can be hooked in series with the existing loader controls, but I'm not sure how a power beyond setup would complicate the plumbing. If the $1200Can is from a dealer for a manufacturer option, you might get a price for an after-market add on. A dealer should be able to recommend good after market solutions that are less pricey than the dealer equipment.
