    I have a New Holland T2220. 34hp. Hydrostatic. Front end loader.

    Since it does have a front end loader, is there such a thing as a plow that I can remove the bucket from the loader and replace it with the plow?

    I can keep pushing with the bucket or just keep dragging a blade behind it. But somehow I'm thinking a plow would just be better and quicker for the kind of parking lots I have.

    There was just a thread on this. Tractors and plows.

    You don't say of your loader has a QA or hyd remotes, but if it does it makes adding a snow blade easy,

    Check out the set-ups on Tractorbynet's snow removal forum.

    Don't know how much commercial you're doing, but if you're using a tractor, a front blade or pusher will make it quicker and easier!

    Been on the tractorbynet forum. Lots of excellent information. I had no clue they had a snow removal section.

    Now my next question. I will be plowing nothing but parking lots. No larger than two acres at the most. Many less than an acre. I ordered a 2014 Polaris 850 today with a 60" plow. I plan to use that primarily on the sidewalks and getting everything pushed away from the buildings.

    But then what? I have found both plows and pushers for my FEL. I can see the benefit with both. Considering what all I'll be plowing, should I get a 6' pusher or a 6' plow? My tractor does have the four hydraulic connections up front. For my FEL, up, down, open, and close of the bucket.

    Plow, or a cage.
