    Just purchased a Volvo L35b. Has a Volvo coupler on it. Looking for Pusher recommendations. Should this be mounted directly to coupler or is it big enough for a backhoe box chained to bucket. This is our first loader. Have used bobcat brand pushers on skid steers before. Thanks in advance.

    I would mount the box on the coupler . Gets rid of the weight of your bucket and keeps the pusher closer to the machine .

    You definitely want to use the coupler lucky to have it. I think the volvo is a compact? What size pusher are you looking for 12ft or will it handle more?

    Yes, its a 13,000# compact loader. Was looking at 12'. Unless we do a LD13 Arctic. They want over $1000 for the Volvo adapters though.

    If you don't think the 1k is money you do not want to spend get a 12ft bucket mount. It will work fine the coupler is just a nice option.

    not sure if you would be intested, but I could get you into a brand new 11' SnowWolf Ultra power angle blade with a Fastach box and Volvo iso coupler for $7,500.00

    You will be fine with a pushbox on that bucket. Ran that same setup for the really bad storm in Feb of either 2011 or 12, and the whole season for that matter. That things a little tank!! Check my profile pic!

    LD 13? I'm lost on that one.

    The LD 12 is 13 wide if that's what ur reference is.

    Ended up with a 12' Optimus. Will try to post pics when all set up. Loader needs some minor work yet.

    I'm assuming you went with the bucket mount? Is it a sectional or rubber edge?

    We bought a 12' w skid steer plate. Planning on taking skid plate off and making our own coupler brackets. The optimus is a sectional type plow.
