    Default B2620 with 60" snow bucket

    B2620 with QA and 60 inch "light materials" bucket. Works good with snow and faster than the 50 inch bucket which has become my "dirt" bucket.

    Yeah - I'm going to get the B3200 forks too so I can play with, er, I mean move big rocks.

    The large bucket is good for me because I have a lot of crazy areas where snow builds up (like that metal roof intersection in the pic). And my drive is such that it has no room to plow snow to, so I need to keep piling it up and we have been getting a lot these past two years. The plow truck was doing a terrible job because it was to long to maneuver. The B has been great for that. One more great excuse to buy a tractor.

    Nice chains on that B2620

    I too have a 60" bucket on my B7800 and a rear PTO blower. With a red metal roof on my house I need that loader (along with the toothbar) to scrape up the snow and ice that slide off my roof lines throughout our winters.

    Thanks, yeah those are good chains, light weight and good clearance but still pretty aggressive.

    Yeah, that's the setup I might like to get eventually. The blower for the long drive stretch and turnarounds and the loader around house. The metal roofs are nice but they do pile up snow around your house.

    How does that rear blower work for you? It sounds like the kind of setup that would work faster for me than the rear blade.

    cool house too!

    Oh, I loved my 6 foot rear blade for making my driveway smooth and clean but after the first two winters we had so much snow I ran out of places to pile it. That and the tractor bogged down (even with chains all on 4 tires) when we got 18" dumps of snow at once. That and my finesse plowing took out some deck and step parts

    So, I broke down and found a like-new 5 foot snowblower for only $600. Now I throw the snow 50 feet and have no more issues. I also save myself an hour or more each time I go out to move snow.

    That crappy metal roof requires me to have the loader to cart off all the snow and ice I must pull off the roof with my snow rake. I also have an ice dam problem since adding the mudroom with the opposing roof-one of those things that you didn't know that you didn't know.

    You might consider a cheap bucket grapple and valve kit along with a tooth bar for moving rocks and trees. My triple combo cost me US$1200 and it works very well.

    What kind of chains are those? Mine fall in between the treads of the tire and are useless. (I know, I know - pictures coming)

    I think they are called Aquiline or something. The dealer recommended them and at first I balked because they aren't cheap and I bought 4 link ladder chains which are next to useless with R4s or so I found out last winter. These are made for CUTS and you can get them here under tractors I think:Buy Tire Chains & Snow Chains from the Traction Specialistsļ½©

    I bought them from the dealer so I don't know anything about these people.
