    pushing lots of snow, one of my operators came back to the shop tonight asking for me to do this. Is it just a stack or a straight pipe Paul?

    nothing like the sound of pure coal burning powerwesport

    I didn't know it was already posted, any one know what is done to the exhaust?

    It sounds like a snowblower almost.

    Anyone know if I could do it to a 2012 Kubota without effecting any of the electrical stuff or other issues?

    We love it, it has a 10-17 hydraulic wing plow on it. Absolute monster in parking lots..a lot more comfortable to drive around and faster...

    I will add some pics and videos someday

    Have you had a chance to load snow with it?

    Seeing tractors being used for snow removal in Fredericton is still fairly new, I notice on Kijiji in Moncton you see a lot of adds for resi work with large tractors & blowers but up here all you will see is a few compacts, never seen a pull blower in person. I may have to be the first to try doing drives with a big one.

    Up here in Moncton tractors are the only thing doing driveways. A tractor can do 100+ driveways, I think up here in the maritimes we get to much snow for a pull blower. 30cm storm the end of driveways are easily 3-4ft tall and you would have to drive thru it.

    I have a double auger blower on mine and I'm amazed at how it chews up snow banks on our lots. Yes I've hauled snow and wish I could find a snow bucket for it but it does the trick. I'm planning on buying another one next season.

    I'd say you guys get a lot more big storms than we do in Fredericton.

    Here is a video for Moncton snow removal, at 1:25 shows a very large Landini clearing a drive. It has to be equal or larger than the Kubota M135. That Landini must be a one pass special.
