    Default front mount snowblower on the kubota

    video of the new snowblower. It was the first snowfall so i wanted to test it out. A few hours after we got about 6 inches. And it threw the snow pretty good.

    How did you like it with the hoe on the back? I put a cement filled ballast box on my 3030 for one storm and decided the weight on the back was a detriment, not an asset. With the blower in float I couldn't steer worth a darn.

    It was a little funny when steering. But not enough for me to take off the hoe. I am keeping it on there just incase i need a push up the hill. The driveway is asphalt so i am worried about running chains. But its narrow enough were i can reach the unpaved part and use the hoe to push me up enough to get traction again. If i find out that traction isnt an issue then i am definetly taking off the hoe, I would love to get some kind of a sand spreader. The bottom hill is a killer for people to make it up.

    How much did it weigh? Looking at making one for our BX2660 and B7500.

    I have been snowblowing like crazy the last couple of days. So far this has been a life saver. No traction problems yet for the tractor. But the cars are having some trouble getting up the drive. Anyone out there have a spreader on their 3 point hitch?

    I bought the actuator for the chute deflector online from surpluscenter.com.t's a 3.93 stroke,part#5-1577-4 and the bracket for it is part#5-1577-B and a DPDT center open momentary 20 amp toggle switch.The total with shipping was $102 and it's real easy to install.
