 loader snow removal

I'm about to buy a TC25D with a 7308 loader primarily for snow removal and maintaining 20 acres. Am I right in assuming that I can use the loader with the bucket tipped down to plow and remove snow from a long paved driveway?

Some people do it that way if the snow is light. I've never mastered the art. It is easier to me to use a back blade.

I agree with Roger. A blade that you can angle, whether in front or back, is the tool for snow removal. Or a snowblower, but that's more for deep snows.
You can remove snow with a bucket but after the first bucket-width is pushed it will be a big mess because on subsequent passes snow will keep sliding off to the middle of the driveway.

Back blades are relatively cheap and handy. I'd go that route. There is debate on this however. If you will be pushing snow often and/or don't mind spending more money, you can probably get a front blade for that tractor. It will function just like a snowplow blade on a pickup truck. But either way, get a blade.

I have to agree with the rear blade approach. For the money it works great. I bought an inexpensive $150 blade from a local farm supply store and if you don't beat on it hard i works find for snow. I wouldn't use it for ramming into any piles, but thats never a good idea anyway. I'd also agree a front blade may work a bit better, but I'm sure the cost is much higher.

Thanks for the input. I was hoping to keep attachments down to a loader and a mower, but I live in heavy snow country (Wisconsin) so I guess I'll probably need a blade too. Wife's going to love this, I already told her a bucket was all that we would EVER need. Anyone know some good lawyers? One for bankruptcy and one for divorce. Ha-ha-ha. Should of bought a horse!

Yeah, but you can get a 6' rear blade for less than $200 at Farm & Fleet.
So that's not so bad.

Depending on where in Wisconsin I might be looking for a snowblower for your job. You might find it a little tough for a backblade after a couple of big snowfalls. Check out some of your neighbors and see what they are using.

 loader snow removal

I live in New England and thought the same thing when I bought my Kubota 2710 (that I could remove snow with the loader), so that's what I did the first year. In the float position it worked pretty well for me, but my driveway (500') is paved and also pitched to one side. You do have to make extra passes. What concerned me is that it grinds the loader. So last year I bought a rear blade (6' blade for 5' wide tractor to account for angle). Plow backwards works fine and you still have the loader to push back banks. Cut my plowing time in half. But we got so much snow last year and I spent a lot of time pushing back banks to get ready for the next storm, so this year I am buying a used 5' snowblower. Hope that helps.

I totally second what "Regular Guy" says about needing a blower. If your lane/drive and yard are not level or are graded higher up than surrounding area like many midwest drives are, during the heavy snows, a blade will not be able to push away the masses of snow far enough from the drive. An angled blade pushes new snow into the previous old snow and eventually the useable drive becomes very narrow. One windy storm will block that in quickly. Then you are stuck with no where to go with the snow. Of course if the grade allows you to use a loader or blade to push the snow far off the drive then you are in better shape. Still a blower would be alot faster than that method. The most important point on the blower is that it isn't wimpy.
