    Default snowplow mounted in bucket

    This is a wing type setup I have been working on. A few people expressed some interest in it. I hope it my spark an idea in some of the very creative minds on this forum. The wing setup did not perform to my expectations.

    The wing is not big enough (tall) and not off set enough. What happens is that there is so much snow that of the bit falls back into the road and ends up making more work. The trip edge is a problem due to them tripping in heavy snow, but nice to have if you do hit some thing. I also ran into traction problems going up hill with the ice, even with chains. My intentions were for it to be used as a wing. It would work well mounted centered and used as a plow. The only modifications to my bucket were 3 holes, (2) 7/8 and (1) 3/8. To remove the plow just release the 2 pins in the push frame and unhook the chain.

    Back to the drawing board, again.

    This pictures shows the push bar and hook. This is not my hook for pulling or carrying things. I don't have a sturdy hook on my bucket yet. Still uncretain how to arrange them.

    oops! forgot the attachment!

    This is a picture of work in progress in the shop. The plow is in the fore ground.

    Derek, Looks like your on a roll.
    Did up beef up the bucket bottom w/some plate steel...couldn't tell w/ the snow in the bucket.
    Hey I like your shop..everything handy and enough room.

    Thomas.

    No, juste bolted the pushframe to bucket bottom. But it is at the back of the bucket against the back side. The shop is nice, it should be we use it to make a living. We actually have 4 bays. One 9k lb. twin post lift, one drive on 11k lb. lift. Approx 50 x 55 bock building with 14 ft ceilings. Nice to have to work or modify things for the tractor.

    Hi Derek this is Scaper. I saw your pictures today and it's funny that I did, I just got home from a Meyers dealer in Toughkennamin P.A. . Guess what he had in his shop? A 3010 kubota that he was installing a 7 1/2' Meyers Poly blade in the bucket. Said he has been doing this for local farmers for the past few years and they love the set up. He does about the same thing you are doing but he puts the clevis set up in the center. He installs a piece of 6x6 1/4" angle in the rear of the bucket with a clevis bar welded to it dead center. He mounts it by drilling 3, 3/4" holes through the bucket where the stiffner plates run from the front to rear under the bucket. He then mounts the A frame via the two spring loaded pins to the clevis. Next is the sector which allows the blade to pivot. then the blade. My bucket is 17 1/2 " deep from the leading edge of the bolt on HD cutting edge to the back part of the inside of the bucket where it starts to angle up. The bucket is 60" wide so he cuts a 6x6 1/4" angle 59" long to use as the back stop for the clevis mount. The one I saw had the chain form the front portion of the frame hooked to a clevis hook on the top center of the bucket. He lifted the bucket up and there was no movement to the plow what so ever. The main portion of the plow frame is supported by the flat inside section of the bucket. This looks like a sweet setup as you can plow then remove the blade quickly to pile snow with the loader bucket. I think that the setup that Kadonte had was way cool, his requires that the bucket be removed and that isn't that big a deal on my tractor ( TC33D New Holland 7308 loader)so I'm not sure which way I'm going to go yet. I had a plow available to me 6 1/2 ' meyers but my friend sold it this past weekend so I'm now looking again. What do the folks recommend for a 33 Hp. tractor 6'-6 1/2-or 7 foot plow. I have been told to stay at no more then 6 1/2' for mine but this fellow said 7 or 71/2' would be fine. I think that would be alot of snow for a 33 Hp 4wd tractor. So how about some input from other readers. Good luck I think as you said you would have been fine if you had it centered and used it for the main plow. Scaper

    Scaper

    Sounds like the plow dealer know his stuff. You can stack snow with the blade and if you curl and push,you'll stack the snow higher than with the bucket only. I would go with at least 7' maybe a 7.5'. A 6' or 6.5' blade will not cover your tracks when the blade is angled. The size depends on the type of snow and how much you get. I have found out that the traction of the tractor is in 12" of snow is great, unlike a plow truck. So if the tractor can't push it, pick up the blade and leave a little snow and make another pass. I know it would work centered as a main plow but the trucks are faster getting to the drives than the tractor. Let me know if you got some questions.

    Hi Derek, well I fell into a manure pit today and came out smelling like a rose. I called about a 6 foot Meyer's plow and got a wrong number on Thursday morning. But low and behold the man named Craig told me his boss had two six foot Meyer's plows for sale , they had both been on S10 Blazers. Well I told him to let me know a price as soon as he talked to his boss and I might be interested in one of them. He called back on Saturday morning and told me his boss said 200 for the plows and 50 for the Blazer mount system. Well, I told him I would come up this morning and take a look at the plows so I met him there at his Boss' shop and found the plows to be in great shape hardly used if I may say so, but instead of six foot plows they were six and a half feet each and were poly to boot. Markers on both, top snow deflectors, great cutting edges and frames. Well I said I would take one of them and he asked why not take both since they were identical plows? I said that the price was more then I wanted to spend for both and he asked "what 200 is too much for both?" I about dropped a load right then and there. I said you want two hundred for both , well I think I'll take them both so I have parts. He said great my boss will be glad to see them go since everyone around here runs full size blades. Well they are sitting in the drive way as we speak and I'm starting on the mounts this week so I'll keep ya posted. Sometimes it pays to wait for the right deal.
    See ya, Scaper

    Scaper,
    That's great. Isn't it funny how things turn out sometimes? Do you think it will be very hard to get the blade mounted with that kit? Much modification?
