    Default What size FEL plow - Kubota MX5100?

    Does 8 foot plow sound about right for a kubota MX5100, mounted on FEL? I have a 7ft rear blade, and the machine does fine with that if chained up.

    Sounds about right to me, but the type of plowing you do may be different than in my part of the country.

    If you are plowing a pretty hilly drive, and get 12+ inches of snow at a time, an 8' blade may be a tad much.

    But if a flatter terrain, and only 4-6" of snow at a time being the norm, 8' is a good fit.

    Normally if we get more than about 5 or 6 inches of snow, or drifts of 10 inches or more, I'll use the blower to take it down to within an inch or two of the surface, and then plow to scrape the surface clean. I also plow a couple of parking areas where its too tight for the blower. I've been using a 6 foot UTV plow for light snow, and the rear blade when I really want to scrape down. But, the UTV is getting beat up from plowing, and I don't like managing the side berms when using the rear blade, so thinking about an FEL plow.

    I run a 9' angle blade or a 8' snow pusher on my L5740. No chains, rear tires ballast with Rimguard and all 4 tires grooved. Your MX5100 should handle 8' with no problem. Traction is your key. You have plenty of ponies under the hood.
    Hope that helps.

    yeah, thanks. I have chains for all four, with Rimguard, and would always have some weight on the back too.

    BTW, what brand of blade is that you've got on your 5740?

    I've looked at the WR Long. WHen I get closer, I may email you to find out about freight cost to a freight terminal in Colorado.
