    FYI they are called Roll Over plows, at least according to the mfg.

    Snow pro I don't now what they're worth but, a local yard has 2 for sale. I used one back in the 80's they have 3 problems imo. They're so heavy they broke the front springs on the trucks. They don't have any trip mechanism, so when you hit something it bends the plow and sometimes it won't roll over anymore.You better have a real good parking lot or they will rip it up.

    I'm not familiar with your loader. How many yards is it? what does it weigh? We had a terex 72 10 at that time about a 2 yard machine. It would just barely pick it up. They're too heavy for anything but a runway IMO. If your machine has to carry all that weight around it won't push as much. Around here you can buy a one way plow for about $500 or a large angle blade for about $1200. They are much lighter and would be more efficient
