    Default Snow Plow on 3000 Series

    Has anyone installed a skid steer type plow on a JD 3000 Series. I see Bobcat makes a V-Plow and Boss has a plow for skid steer machines.

    I am wondering if there is a physical adapter that would allow a skid steer plow to attach to the deere.

    Also in a V-Plow I guess your would need a source of hydraulics & controls to move the cylinders on the plow - is this possible with the joy stick in the cab and hose connections to the valve?

    Newbee to JD

    Thanks

    I have a frontier FEL plow on my 790/3005 that I like. I have hydraulic angle controlled off of a separate valve through my power beyond. I think the more expensive 3000 series have a 3rd valve that you can use with your joystick but I think you need a diverter to select it. There are many threads on this and I'm sure someone else will reply.

    Short answer, yes.

    deere offers a SS mounting system for the 300CX loader as well as the 3rd function hydraulic lines and connectors for the loader.

    You would need both options for a hydraulic actuated SS plow.

    However, there are other plow options besides the SS mount. Also, you can use a rear mounted 3rd SCV to provide hydraulic power to the front loader SCV instead of the joystick/diverter combo. Or another electo/hydraulic valve manufacturer (Fasse, etc.) to provide hydraulic power to the plow.

    Quite a bit of information here on TBN regarding the numerous options/approaches that other TBN'ers implemented to utilize FEL mounted plows. A search of the hydraulic forum, and the owning/operating forum and possibly the attachment forum should provide you with many hours of reading...

    Best of luck.

    Akfish sure has that right, I read a ton before getting the 366 plow for my unit.

    Just a followup on my plow. We had 2-3 ft of very heavy wet snow from Thursday through Saturday (yesterday) and my plow did just fine. I plowed much of the neighborhood and mine and my neighbors driveway many times. There were a few times when the tractor lost traction w/o chains but it is remarkable how much snow this tractor can push. There was one point when I had several SUV's following my plow. I went through almost 5 gallons of fuel which is more fuel then I have every used w/o refilling the tank. Couldn't get my tractor to my fuel tank because I couldn't get the gate open.
