    I have a small lot to plow and am thinking about putting a pusher on my kubota along with my 1 ton dump. My kubota is A L3130 (30hp) and was just wondering if anyone out there had a pusher on a tractor this size. if so what size can it handle, and do you think its really worth it.

    You could try a 6 or 7 foot compact Pro-Tech. They go for $1,700 or $1,800 with free freight to your nearest dealer.

    Wieght is a bg traction plus. If it is a hydro drive tranny that helps to. Check out Kage Innovations. They make a blade, snow pusher combo. They are a nice unit, I just bought one for me. They make them 6ft to 10ft.

    I ran a L3240 with a 8 foot pro-tech bucket mount compact pusher. It worked, we were doing about 450' pushes with it, I wouldn't say you couldn't do it, but realistically it wasn't easy for the machine. I think it would have been A LOT better if it was a direct mount to the SS quick attach rather than a bucket mount. What would happen is the snow would come over the top of the pusher and fill the bucket which would make the machine way to heavy on the front end.

    If I were to do it again I would be looking at a 7' snow plow for the loader rather than a pusher. windrowing is easier than straight pushing.

    i have a bobcat ct450 (50hp compact tractor) i had the tires loaded and we put a 7.5' bobcat snow plow angle blade with the boss wings added to it. It does a great job. I was afraid of putting the pusher box on it because i have heard of horror stories about bent loader arms. am hoping with the angle blade the hydrolics will give before bending the loader arms. good luck

    If you want to get the biggest bang for your buck with a light tractor put a bobcat attachment plate on it with a pusher box and a poly cutting edge. I wouldn't go any bigger then a 6 foot box on a 30 horse. That tractor will be a cleaning and stacking machine. I also agree with msu1510, fill the tires. It makes a big difference. Check out Northshore Truck and Equipment for the pusher box and edge. They are good boxes and affordable.
