- I know this probably isn?t a good time to bring this up with the most
of you back in the land of winter weather, but here goes. I have
been toying with the idea of converting my snow blower over to a loader
bucket arrangement. I have not had the need to use this for snow
removal as I get a light dusting at best here in California, so it has
sat in the corner taking up space. Last weekend I pulled it out and
started to remove items from it like the screw and motor assembly.
I have also cut most of the supporting braces off of the unit along with
the shoot. Now when I turn the unit over with the scoop opening on
the bottom it does indeed start to look like a usable bucket. I am
going to cut it down from its 44 inch size to 36 inch size and then weld
the two halves together along with some additional metal plate on the
ends so that it can pivot. I will then modify the original support
arms to hold the bucket and pivot it on its new axis. Probably will
look into getting a small electric hydraulic ram for the movements
- Has anyone else modified a snow blower in this fashion?
