    Default Back Blade plowing Question

    I know I will regret this question later since the more I think about I fully realize how idiotic and insane this question really is [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img]! Well here it goes... I have put the backhoe back on my L35 for it's "mid winter warm up". Well figures now that I have done this, I am in the midst of a 14-inch winter storm! Now im in a dilema which produces the right time for me to pose my question... Is it possible to rig up some device [img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img] with chains,etc. to place the back blade and attach it to the bucket for plowing?? Any thoughts would be appreciated...

    Ben,
    Never seen it done but I guess it could.

    I feel the ownly problem would be the impact on the backhoe if you should hit something solid.

    Im sorry.... I must have posted the question wrong. What I meant was attach the back blade with chains to the FEL bucket [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Ben:

    I did something similar to what you're asking but with a blade from a garden tractor. I posted it in this thread.

    The mounting arrangement for a 3ph blade is quite different from what I was working with but maybe it will give you some ideas.

    I once saw a fellow on a contstruction site who had taken a 5 foot blade ( just the blade ) and welded large "C" clamps on the back of it. He would then just clamp it to the sideds of his backhoe bucket and use his backhoe to scrape flat large areas like garage door openings. He would smooth over places close to walls without having to drive back and forth with the tractor. He was pretty handy back filling trenches with it too. I imagine you have to have a pretty good touch on the controls.
