I called a dealership today asking for the part number for a snow blade with the skid steer quick hitch. I wanted to look online at pictures. The salesman told me bx2812 this is not a skid steer hitch. If what I want exsist please let me know the part number. Thank you.

It'd really,really be nice to have a website or 'link' to a chart that had THAT information ! Also simple things like part# for dual rear remotes, 3rd fnx up front, work lights ??, etc ....
a sheet inside the manual ??
I'm sure other would buy more 'options' IF we could EASILY know about them...

It is a BX2812A, and there is a picture of someone using the blade on youtube. He is using it with a quick hitch mount. The only other one that I had seen for the skid steer mount, was one for a larger tractor. I have a 60" blade on my BX22, and it is great for cleaning up after I snow blow the driveway, but when attempting to push heavy snow, the tractor can't push it. I started to look at converting it to fit a BX23S, and the cost is prohibitive. I don't know how well it will work on the tractor arms. I would be afraid of bending them if you hit something solid by error.

B2672 - do not buy one that is solidly attached to SSQA plate. Blade needs it's own float mechanism. FEL float only allows front axle to lift when blade needs to float. Buy another brand if you have to - the beauty of SSQA.

absolutely. I talked to my local dealer about that. Kubota Canada wants you to have to talk to a dealer just to get prices. We spent a few days going back and forth discussion price and options when I wanted a blower. i said it would be a lot faster for both of us, if I could hop on the kubota website and see a list of all the things I can buy for my machine and the price.

sometimes, if you lookup the item for parts, the first 'part' in the list is the complete unit ! Didn't work for the blade B2673, at least not in the CDN website..... Over 3K for the major parts(blade,frame, SSQA adapter)
ouch..... there's one in Lindsey,On for $2700
Sure glad I have a 30 year old buzzbox and steel !

I like my SSQH blade. It uses the 3rd function for movement.
Using chains on the back not a single problem sliding with big piles. And I can always switch to the bucket.
Make sure you have something on the back as a counterweight.
See my post about how I made my front weight kit work on the back.
Also buy a "rubber" edge to swap with the steel one if you don't want to scratch your pavement/asphalt.

I have a front blade on my BX22, and it is fixed to the quick hitch, and it works perfectly, and follows the contours of my driveway. I use it to clean up after the snowblower does its job. Even the plow on my truck is fixed point mounting, and it only goes right/left and Up/down. Can't see how you would feel that you need more movements than those that are provided in the plate. The only fault that I can see with the Kubota designed plow is the cost of the quick hitch plate mechanisms.

After using the bucket to move 30 inches of snow on my 700 ft vacation getaway driveway, I am going to try a blade plow on my Bx23S. I pick it up Thursday this week coming up. Dealer I use had w few and I snagged one. Will let you know how it works. Waiting on a B2672 manual turn, due to money and the no 3rd function.
Cheers

Used a rear blade for 40 years - almost idiot proof, just drop and drive. Thought adding front blade would speed things up. Nope it is a PITA, always snagging the ground. Change the angle - have to change curl to level blade. Put FEL in float and front axle lifts instead of blade.

3pt hitch less weight, swiveling connections on both ends of all 3 connection points. FEL arms are solidly connected to each other not designed to be flexible.
FEL is more like a truck frame, thats why the blade needs to float on it's own.

My blade pins to the BX22 quick hitch, not the loader arms. I don't believe in using the loader for plowing, since if you hit something solid, the chances of damaging one arm is a possiblity. The way that the quick hitch attaches to the frame of the tractor, the worse that can happen is the tractor slides sideways, which has happened to me when pushing a wet heavy snow. That is when I switch to the snowblower. If the snow is more than the BX can handle, I have a 1979 F250 4X4 dump truck with a 8' Fisher plow that is capable of moving mountains of snow.
It all comes down to your budget, using the loader with the plow attached to the arms, is a lot less expensive than a dedicated quick hitch costing $750 (approximately). My first plow set up was a 1948 Willis jeep, with a 6' plow and no heater. That was a very, very long time ago. Now, I am more interested in getting it done quickly and comfortably.

Thank you for all your comments. I worked with my friend today on the new plow welding. We need a few parts, I hope to post when done to show the results. Here in NEPA we had 44 inches in our big snow storm. If I don't use the new blade till next year that will be ok.
