 Snow Removal with Rear Blade

I have used my Landpride 1572 RBT rear blade to remove snow on my gravel driveway, and really messed up the surface. I had new 1/2" gravel brought in about a month ago, which had not yet compacted very well or frozen to the ground due to very little moisture. The blade just tore up my nice smooth driveway. Because of the relatively short wheel base of compact tractors, this must be a common problem. Will skid shoes solve that problem? My dealer quoted me two Landpride skid shoes for around $ 200, which is unbelievably expensive. My idea is to buy some cheap large diameter air filled caster wheels and install them on the blade, which should work even better thab skid shoes. Has anybody ever tried that with good results? Do skid shoes or caster wheels make a difference on a rear blade for snow removal? Any comments welcome.

 Snow Removal with Rear Blade

I've got the same blade, and the same problem. I posted earlier inquiring about a 3pt snow blower but can't justify the cost (yet). I agree about the cost of the skid shoes. My brother-in-law has an 84" blade and was going to try the shoes. We just recieved our first decent snowfall (central NH) so I'll find out how they worked and follow-up. I'm thinking even though the cost is crazy, if they work it will save the drive. We'll see.

Markus, I have the exact same blade as you, and my Landpride skidshoes only cost me $100 for the set (2). The skidshoes do help with the gravel problem. You need to set them to leave about 2" of snow to avoid scraping up the gravel. You will get 2 shallow depression in the gravel where the skidshoes ride on the gravel, but this doesn't cause any problem. These go away when you drive on the gravel.

Also another little tip - plow snow with the blade pushing in the reverse position. The blade with float better over the ground and not dig in the the gravel much.

Jim, where are you located? I'm in NH. Maybe I can use your quote as a barganing tool.

Marcus, before I switched from 3pt hitch type to skid steer front type attachments, I enjoyed great success using a York rake equipped with all of the options, one being the grader blade. I had the same problems over gravel, added the adjustable gage wheel kit and put the rake into float. The wheels did the trick. Of course this attachment was good for only snow less than 4" deep. Casters are not a bad way to go if you have a source and a means to mount them to your blade. You have a good idea that deserves exploring. Good luck.

Jim, can you explain what you mean by plowing with the blade in the reverse position? Are you plowing with the cutting edge or the back of the blade? Or are you just talking about turning the blade around and plowing in reverse gear? Here in NJ we have not yet gotten any snow so I have not had the opportunity to try the rear blade. Thanks for the insight. Rich

Richard, I believe that Jim is saying to use the back of the blade too push or drag with. That way the cutting edge won't scrape up or dig in on gravel or other soft ground. You would want that cutting edge to scrape on asphalt or concrete surfaces.

DFB, what about the skid plates? I would think that they would cause the snow to get stuck on the back of the blade.
