    Do you have to remove the hitch and pto in order to use a FEL?

    -quick-hitch-004-jpg<a href='http://www.tractorbynet.com/c/quickhitch' onclick=quick hitch 004.jpg  Views: 636  Size: 1.03 MB  ID: 289297" class="thumbnail" style="float:CONFIG" />The best way i can describe it is for all of you to go to www.zuidberg.com It is a 3 pt hitch and front mount pto. Cost me about $11,000. but i can tell you it is a very very rugged piece of gear. i will try to include some pictures of my setup but their website describes it best. I plow for my municipality and two years ago...snowblowed several miles of road...widening 5 weeks, 7 days a week BACKING UP No more of that. The up and down i contolled bu the bucket hydraulics and the chute turn control is also controlled by the bucket roll out, roll in control stick. It is a very slick setup but i certainly would not recommend the expense if you do little blowing... in my situation, it is well worth it.-quick-hitch-001-jpg For general plowing i use the rear blower and a power angle plow on the front of the loader with my quick attach connection. If im going to switch over to the front pto, i dorp the bucket and use the frontlink system. Hope this helps. Now all i need is SNOW and lots of it.

    That looks pretty sweet. Make sure to post some video footage in action if you have the means to do so. If I ever hit the lotto I'd buy a New Holland Powerstar or something similar and equip it with a front 3 point and PTO so that I could run a blower such as you've done. It looks like a really great setup.

    How long did you have to wait for the Zuidberg front hitch? Gotta love Dutch engineering!

    The Joy of the Zuidberg is nothing has to come off to use a FEL.
