    Default Moving Snow With A BX

    What is the biggest snowstorm anybody tried to move with only a front loader and back blade on their BX? In other words did you tackle 6",8", 10", etc, etc at one time. Pic's welcome.
    Work is much more fun with the right tools

    Less than 2'' cause that 1 snow is the biggest one we've had since I got my bx23 in Sept 2004.
    But I'm ready with a FEL on my BX23 and the BX1500 with a front blade just in case we get that big 3 incher this winter.

    No pictures, but I have moved 10-12 " with my 2200 and the FEL. It was slow going, but I managed just fine. I usually try to plow every 6" when we get big stroms. Here in the Southern Tier of NY, we usually get 1 10'" storm a year, not enough to consider buying a blower.

    Where are you located. I'm in Rockland county. Just got a BX24 with
    60"MMM. Wondering how well it will do with snow removal. Debating whether to sell my walk behind snow blower and buy a rear blade.

    I've moved 12"+ with my BX22 and front mt snow blower.

    Works very well without any issues.

    Never tried moving snow with my MMM. Let us know how you make out. Just kidding!

    I'm still wondering that about my BX23.
    The Biggest Snow we've had since I got it 3 years ago was one snow that measured less than 2'' .

    The deepest snow I ever plowed off my drive way was 14''.
    Did it with my Bolens 850 garden tractor and a 42'' front blade.
    It did OK.
