    My parents and I are trying to help my brother. He has just finished a new home, and bought a New Holland LS160 with a bucket to use during construction. He'll use it to plow too, but we thought another attachment might work better.

    My searches aren't coming up with much, so I was hoping some on this site might have some advice. On a residential gravel driveway, should we get him a plow or snow pusher, or should he just keep and use the bucket?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    Pushers are best for large open areas, and most snowfalls that aren't that deep will be tough with the bucket. Best bet would be a plow for it

    If it's just his own driveway then just have him use his bucket.

    I'd agree that the bucket should suffice, as long as the driveway isn't a mile long or something. If you were to look for something else, I'd suggest a cab enclosure & heater (if no already equipped), and possibly a plow if the drive is extremely long. BTW, welcome. Thumbs Up

    it depends on the length of the drive and atleast a door
