    I am converting a fisher 9ft plow and making it to a pusher, to mount to my jd310 backhoe. Has anyone done this, I have a rubber cutting edge, cut the side plates, made supports, and now fabing the fork mounts for the bucket. No pics right now, but will post soon, just want to see what you guys are using with old surplus equip laying around. THANKS

    made one out of a 8 ft for my skidsteer left the steel edge on its a bottom trip so it works great scrapes up hardpac good . Made a 10 ft for my backhoe steel edge no trip but works good plus it was a free plow and it took a pizza and a 12 pack to build. cannot beat the price

    I've been studying snow pushers for a couple years and have got a Fisher 9 footer laying around that will probably do the trick. Going to keep the trip edge to help cut some costs, but what about modifications to use it with the bucket on my loader. Looks like I'll need to cut off all the stock stuff to weld in a piece of channel to support the fingers/tabs that the bucket slide in to. Have heard of others here making these conversions but have yet to see pics. Anybody got anything to share?

    r u putting it on a skidsteer or a backhoe. If u r putting it on a skidsteer weld the plate to the end of the semi circle it gives u a little more reach to pile snow
