    Default Front sweeper on a Kubota B26?

    I'm looking at upgrading to a B26 from a B21 and one of the reasons is the skid steer quick attach on the front. I'm hoping that someone makes a sweeper I can put on there.

    I've searched around and the hydraulic ones all seem to want 10-30gpm and the whole hydraulic system on the B26 is around 11gpm - so no go there?

    I've seen some mention of kubota made sweepers that use the mid PTO somehow. Anyone tried that? If so, is it a pain to attach?

    Thanks a lot, I've got almost 2 miles of road to maintain, the sweeper would help.

    at $7,500+ for ken's setup.... id really really really REALLY have to have a good reason to NEED one! Granted the broom is available without the extra 3pt pump kit, but for $5K worth of broom, i think you'll be very unhappy with its performance if its just driven off the tractor hydraulics (at like 8 gpm)
