That's kinda what I thought. I'd rather something heavy. The stuff thats in it right now seams like 30w.

Oh, I found out what happens if your son put a chain saw in the bucket of the tractor too. It could slip out and get shredded. :shock:
Ya...real bad too. I'll be in the market for one of those now.....

Anybody have a Kabota with a rear snowblower? How do you like it?
I'm thinking of gettin' one. It would have to be 60"
Been moving snow with the front loader. It just takes too long.

What size kubota???

A buddy has an older B7200 with a three point blower, slips it on for deeper snows, other than that uses a drag blade on the back. Blower works real well just a little slower than the blade if there isn't much snow.

I have the B7510. It's a 23 hp.
My rear tires are 52 inches outside to outside, so I'd have to go with a 60 inch blower on the 3 point hitch.
I priced them and they're not cheap. Thats' why I figured I'd ask around before I buy.
For the price of a new one for the Kabota, I could pick up a smaller tractor with a blower on Craigslist.
I'm not sure which way to go here.
With Craigslist, I could be buying someone elses problem.

Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference.
Looks like your all set!
So, do you end up with a sore neck when your done snowblowing, or do you have mirrors on your tractor?
See, I have 300 feet of gravel driveway, plus another 400 feet or so to get to the chicken coop, greenhouse and storage building where I keep
tools and materials. I'm moving a lot of snow!! Maybe I should have bought a bigger tractor to begin with.

Actually its not bad on me at all. I have a hydro tranny and a few years back I put a real nice kings seat from tractor supply on with arm rests that raise up so I can actually sit sideways and use the opposing arm rest for a back rest. My drive isnt that small so I understand your concern there.

The snow blower in the pick is a Buhler/Allied 60" wich was the best priced one I could find last year. I will have to look up the actuall cost as I cant remember off hand the exact price or name of the dealer I got it from. Most places I inquired about them wanted way more than I paid for it.

Included here is a pic showing the distance out to the road from my place. The drifts can be hell up here so its nice to be able to get threw them quickly!

Sorry NO Harleys in my Garage! Never had any luck with harleys, seems everytime I get on one it breaks down, so I stay off them. Anyway the pic wasnt intended to show the bike but rather how far it is to to road (out past the white house)

Depending on how handy you are with fabricating, consider making it a front mount

They do make a front mount for the Kabota, but that means taking off the front loader.
That's a process! And having the bucket on the front comes in handy for tight spots.
I think I'm going with the rear mount. It seems like the best option.
Now, to find one I can afford.
Thanks for the advise guys. I appreciate it.
I was really glad to find this thread on here.
I went to the TractorsByNet website, but I don't know anybody there.
Rather hang here with my friends. :drunk:
