Have a skid steer sitting around this winter with nothing to do? Don’t worry, snow removal attachments are available for your skid steer; this includes the snow blower, snow pusher and snow blade (also known as a snow plow). Each of these attachments has its place in both commercial and personal use.
A snow blade attachment for your skid steer will move large quantities of snow with little effort on your part. This is a very attractive scenario when the temperature falls below zero and the wind is blowing non-stop. You just want to get the job done and have it done right the first time. For one pass clearing of narrower paths and walkways, consider a v-blade. This allows you to push snow to each side in one pass. For larger paths and walkways or open areas, consider the snow blade that has side-to-side angling ability which allows you to alternate your passes for more effective snow removal.
A couple of features to consider when purchasing a snow blade; the taller the blade, the more snow it can push with each pass; the more curvature to the moldboard, the more the snow will curl when pushed, therefore increasing the amount of snow moved with each pass.
When shopping for a skid steer snow blade, or any skid steer attachment for that matter, it is important to keep your skid steer’s capacity in mind. When in doubt, check with your attachment dealer or the skid steer manufacturer. Go to our skid steer snow blower page to see the wide variety of snow blower options we have to offer.
