Plowing Snow with a tractor

17257 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  K9-Handler
I just got a Kubota (L3400) tractor and was wondering how other people plow snow with a tractor.

Just use the bucket? A back blade? Some other attachment?

I know they make snow plow attachments for them, but are they necessary?

I agree with JeepHammer -- it depends on where you live and how much snow.

I have use of a pickup with a plow -- but I have to go get it. If the snow is under 3" I'll just use my JD 4310 with the bucket. Anything over that and I'll go get the truck.

I used to use my old '49 JD "M" with a snow blade (manual angle and cable lift), but even with tire chains it would get stuck far too often.

But the newer JD w/bucket comes in handy later in the year when I have to move the piles to make room for fresh snow!
