Actually I'm "movin'" snow. The ol' WD with the 6' bucket sure comes in handy when there's no where to plow the stuff anymore.

I have the same set up, only I have a ARPS blower hanging off the rear. You know the ones that sell cheap at auctions because they only push the snow? Buy one cheap at a auction if ya get a chance. I purchased mine for $200.00 from a farmer who said it was junk, never could blow snow with his D-17 on it. I heard later he was pretty ticked off at me when he asked if he could buy it back a few years later when he seen it working.

There are some tight places that a blower just does'nt work so well, then the big bucket seems to do a decent job. My loader has a hydrolic dump bucket that is almost a must unless you are working on a flat surface most of the time.

This winter we have no frost in the ground under the snow, so we all seem to do our landscaping and snow removal at the same time. I have taken some big chunks of sod and placed them on top of the snow piles. Hate it when that happens, but it does.

Are you aware that WD's and 45's must be kinda replumbed with a dump vale in order to work a rear blade or blower while using the front loader?

Power steering is kinda like toilet paper, once ya used it, it's hard to go back to doing without it.

Pushing snow has it's place, just not at my place.

You"ll be much more satisfied with a bucket- Get one as wide as the rear width of the tractor. Can actually MOVE snow, pile it, rather than push it. Remember, you can adjust rear wheel width- you don"t want something 8 feet wide.

The WD is NF with "armstrong" steering.!! Keeps an old fella like me in shape. The loader is a "trip bucket". My Dad built the complete loader from scratch (including the rams) back around 1960. You have to understand that he didn"t have a lathe, milling machine, acetylene torch, anglegrinder or power hacksaw. He did have a drill press and a stick welder which he used for welding and the HD cutting. He cut most everything with a hand hacksaw. His biggest and best tools were ambition, patience and perserverance.After he built the manure bucket, he decided he needed a bigger one for snow. I would like to have a dollar for every ton of snow that"s been moved by that bucket in the past 50 years.

With a bucket, you will need weight on the rear to maintain traction.
My WD has CaCl loaded tires, wheel weights,
a rear blade with 4 75# weights hanging on it and chains. This works well and the blade can be used to scrape thru the hard stuff.
