*NEW* Land Pride Snow Pushboxes for BX, B & L Series Kubota Compact Tractors


[music] Neil from Messick’s here with
the Land Pride Snow Push Box, every once in a while around
here we see a new attachment or implement come through,
and think to ourselves, “Why didn’t I think of that?” This is definitely one
of those things for me, we’ve had push boxes
come through here for years for larger equipment, but if you go through and
look at what’s used to clear the parking lots of malls
and big commercial properties, airports they
don’t use plows, they typically use
push boxes. The way a push box works is
it’s going to collect the material, and the snow inside
the box area allowing you to sweep
it off to the side, and get it out of the way. Land Pride recently came out
with these small push boxes geared towards
popular compact tractors, this one right here will
fit right in the front of a BX Series machine allowing you to use
that to clear your driveway. It’s a huge improvement
over doing with a loader bucket like many people do. A common frustration we see
with guys of loader buckets particularly with once
at newer homes is that when you push that loader
bucket down your driveway the cutting edge
of the loader bucket is going to scrape up
more of your driveway. If you look at the bottom
of the push box down here, the BX Series one has a really
heavy plastic cutting edge on the bottom in order to keep you from
scraping up your driveway, but give you a nice tool in order
to be able sweep that off, and clean it off. Since Land Pride
is owned by Kubota they do make some unique
mounting options for these that aren’t available
on standard push boxes. You could see these
two right here both have Kubota BX Series
mountings on them where you have
the center cylinder in order to tip
the bucket so here
you mount your two lower pins from your loader,
and your center pin right here. This will also accept
the Kubota quick coupler so, if you want it to be able
to easily switch back, and forth between this,
and the bucket you can use
a BX Series quick coupler at a nominal cost in order to be able to slip
this thing on, and off easily. There is also larger models
available as well that come in a standard
skid steer mount that would go on to
a B, or L Series tractor. These are built a little bit heavier,
and a little bit wider they also get deeper and taller, as well as the size of
the tractor, goes up because you can push a larger
amount of snow in front of you. The one other difference
that you’ll notice too on this is they get bigger, they also swap out the cutting edge
for a different material so, where the smaller box
uses a plastic edge this one uses about an inch thick
solid piece of rubber. On both of these models, this
piece can be adjusted down as it wears just by loosening a couple of
bolts and sliding it down. Just a few notes if you
have one of these, and some operational tips
on exactly how they work. When you have the box
on the front loader typically you want to drop
the thing on the ground, and then push
into the snow collecting the snow
into the box then running off to the side of
your parking lot or, driveway. You use the rubber cutting edge
down here in the bottom to scrape surfaces clean. We’re out here
in this parking lot, and you could see from
the areas that I’ve done it doesn’t get it the whole way
down to the ground, but it does a really good job of
scraping off most of what’s here. It’s a really slushy day, and this is an extremely
bad parking lot it’s in terrible shape, but still, it got most of the crap off
the asphalt so that’s great. One thing I was noticing
when you’re operating this, you got to the thing dropped
down flush on the ground for it really works properly so, I was doing that
by kicking the loader into the float position letting it drop down
on the ground, and then popping
it out of float. If you’re driving along, and you feel like
you don’t have traction on your front wheels it’s usually, because you’re
pushing into the box, and the loader’s picking
your front wheels up the ground a little bit, and you can kind of get some
of that front traction back by rolling the box
front, or back and kind of adjusting the way
that the thing sits on the ground. Just from the quick spin that
I did around the parking lot here, I was pretty impressive,
it worked pretty well. It isn’t quite as capable
as a box on a skid loader, we use those to
clear most of our parking lots here
around the building, and you can work faster,
and more productive with the larger machine
and the bigger box, but for the cost
of these things, and the fact that it has
rubber edges on the bottom, I think it’s a really great choice for
somebody that has a homeowner or, a small office building, or something that they need to take care
of their own snow removal needs. That’s the Land Pride snow pusher if you have any use for an attachment

You should also mention that these can also be used as PULLERs too. Kubota makes a top piece that will attach to the top of those boxes allowing you to tilt the box forward and turn it into a puller.

Hello, I see the bx listed as a suitable match for this implement, but how would you feel about a bx1870 ? I understand there are a ton of variables to take into consideration, depth , consistency , length of driveway etc that would play a role in how well the implement performed. Would it be a bad idea to consider purchasing one of these pushers. Thank you for your time. Videos are great !

Do they make a V plow blade for snow? I have a B2650 with a quick hitch and the front mount snowblower and would love to have V plow blade that I could quick hitch on to the front for my farm road that I don’t snow blow!

Oh heaven forbid, your precious driveway gets scraped. So do you sell garages to put all these attachments in? Because it is not going to fit into your two car garage unless you kick your wifes junk out to the curb. Edit: kick your wife to the curb you can afford a garage and all the attachments!
