I was thinking more along the lines of adding a high output fan belt driven hydraulic pump. I would not want to tie up my PTO with a pump in case you wanted to run an implement off the PTO later. Running off the belt the hydraulics would be both fast and live.

As for the PS rob that system from the Super H before you sell it.

3-points come up for sale used all the time. I recently picked up one for $300 and simply love it.

Wide front? Well I disregarded that totally since the 656 had NF too so not really a deal breaker. And to only push snow... the narrow front is much more maneuverable anyway.

T/A not really sure how useful that is on a loader tractor. I always thought T/A's were mainly for plowing or heavy tillage. In other words Run in high 95% of the time hit a hard spot when plowing pull the lever back to get through the hard spot and then push lever forward to high once through the hard spot. I guess they technically do give you some slower speeds but they freewheel in low range too so not really meant to drive there much from a safety aspect when doodling around.....freewheeling will not happen with a plow in the ground behind yah so no worries on using T/A then.

I think I would rather have the 656 over the 400 though if you dead set on trading. But to only push some snow around every now and then; I think I would rather have your M and either $2000 to $2400 or so in my pocket (assumes you get $3k total from sale of both h's and then spend say $600 on hydraulics and $400 on a 3 point). If I read correctly earlier your m also has brand new tires all around as well so that's a good thing too.
Anyway good luck on whatever happens....any of them will certainly do the job.

Guy decided he wanted cash more than more tractors so this wont happen anyway. Thanks for all your thoughts.

Ive been over the idea of putting the loader on the M and I just cant justify it unless it turns out to be my only option. Putting $2000 into it to get live hydraulics, power steering, wide front and three-point just doesnt make sense. Especially with the fact that I still wont have live PTO or a T/A.
