    Anyone have pictures or input of plows attached to loaders or backhoes?

    I'm in the process of making a 9' Fisher attachment for my fathers JCB 212S backhoe. The machine has a wheel loader style coupler and i have a spare set of forks.

    Any input will help!

    Well it would be better to buy a quick coupler and sell Your forks. Good set of forks is worth more than a quick coupler. I suppose you could just narrow the forks to the a/frame width and weld it on.

    I reccomend shortening the a frame as much as possible while still retaining full range. But if there is room to shorten the a frame, it helps. You are swinging a good amount of weight in front where it is balanced.
