    Thanks! I am running the plow electric but I did not wire the lights to work to save on the electric draw. I kept it electric to be able to swap the plow back to my truck just in case. Matt

    Excellent idea. Same reason I keep my Blizzards electric.

    Are the chains necessary on the front wheels? Figure with the blade you would have enough weight out front.

    I have a bunch of driveways that are very steep and I do not want to risk sliding off the edge. The driveways are good money and I want to be able to keep the tractor under control while on the road.
     
  8. Could you get some pictures of the plow mount for me I am looking to put a plow on our m9000

    I have had an 8.2 on l3540 and l5240 for years frame work is very easy...and welder should be able to make it... nice part is you can still run loader when plow frame is on...just hinders your ground clearance and reach into a truck

    Only part that is iffy is electrical system...at night with your lights and constant running of plow ...low battery light comes on every now and then..I upgraded battery and it helped alot...once o have more time the alternator is next.

    If you wouldn't mind sending me some pictures of the frame set-up that would be great! We usually have 5-10 plows in by now and we have yet to have one this season so i won't be able to do it until next year, but being able to take the plow off my truck and put it on the Kubota would be awesome!! Do you have to beef up the frame at all?

    No Kubota has very tough frame...I basically took boss push beam centered it on tractor...got it set to height took 2 peiece of 1/2 thick steel and hung it off the frame below brush guard using the holes in the Kubota already.. Then put another set towards the back...never had it twist off yet...the original one i did I ran push tubes back to the loaded mount from the push beam...unfortunately it didn't fit for length when I moved up to the 5240 from the 3540..due to tractor length so i cut tubes off...and tried it the way I mention and its been working for 3 years no issues
    ....I will look for pictures
    ...I don't have frame on yet Due to know snow

    Nice looking setup! Keep us posted on how well it works. I'm very interested in hearing how that inverted blower works as we have been contemplating on running 40-50hp compacts with inverted blowers and V's.

    I have a 2011 M110XDC in our fleet we use on roads with a 10' Boss DXT and a 2yrd Salt Dogg hanging off the back.

    This tractor does about 16 mph according to the dash. If things go well the next tractor will do at least 20. From what I have read you need the 12 speed transmission for the higher road speed, this machine is a 8 speed.

    That is a killer setup!! Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up


    You're not too far away, anytime you want to come check out our compacts up in Fargo you're more than welcome too. We have 6 Deere's from 3046r to 4520/4720 to 4066r with 68-82" Inverted Normand units. We've usually got 1-2 used, low hour, tractor/blower combos for sale too. Ehlinger up in St. Cloud has some on 4066r's also, you could hit him up I bet to check it out.
