    I have a Kubota B7610 24hp tractor. Its set up for plowing with front blade, cab, heat, and extra lighting. Have used it for sidewalks. We have an apartment complex with a skid steer on site to do all the roads, cul-de-sacs and short, 1 car driveways, about 100 of them. I was thinking about repurposing the tractor by leaving the loader on the front and putting a 6' rear blade with end plates for pulling the drives out and using the fel to push the snow up on the grass. I think it will be much more efficient than using the ss alone. Anybody else use a rear blade in this manor? Thanks for the feedback.

    I had a kubota B7500 set up very much the same, with cab,front blower & front blade. I would not go the rear blade route. If you plan on using this machine for years to come, set up the loader (im guessing its a 352 loader) with quick attach to go from bucket to blade. I had the 2650 front blower, it moved a lot of snow fast!
