I'm thinking of an out of the box way to Mount a snow plow to a loader bucket. Main reason for doing it this way is... Loader is difficult to remove and I don't want any down pressure on the plow bc I have a gravel driveway.

My idea is to weld some pieces of angle iron tabs on the rear bottom of the bucket. Two sets of two that would accept the pins to attach a western style snowplow. Instead of the cylinder to lift the low a simple chain would attach to the hook on the top of the bucket. Tilting or raising the bucket would lift the plow, but it would rest on the ground with slack in the chain(no down pressure).

To angle the plow I'd set up hydraulics or maybe find a way to manually turn it.

What do y'all think??

I did something similar on mine. But, I removed the bucket and attached the forks. The actual forks came off, leaving just the frame work. I picked up an 8 foot Meijers plow with hyro turn for $50.00. I
then used the wishbone or Aframe or whatever it is called that the blade attaches to, used 2 brackets with pins to attach it to the fork bracket. I also used a chain for lifting. I removed the cylinders as I
didn't have hydraulics plumbed to the front except for the bucket tilt, and this blade is set up to use a manual swing using a bolt to hold it in place. It did work as you are thinking. But, the blade is
really forward doing it that way. Makes it very clumsy in tight areas. I ended up buying a used Kubota with a front blower and it is so much easier to use.

Cool. I'm glad it won't be too obscure. I'm hoping it won't be too much further forward than the bucket itself. And tight areas aren't too much of a problem for me.

I did something similar. But used
angle iron to mount a Meyer snow plow
blade. Has a one-way cylinder. First
year I used a chain from the bucket to
lift plow. Then ran hydraulic hose
from rear connection on tractor.
Makes it even more front heavy but has
worked for 3 or 4 years.

That is the better idea.Did those WD style weight holes line up with those on the 5040?

Weights were for sale nearby and unidentified. Lined up with holes on wheel so I bought them. Maybe $50 for the pair. Blade turn is manual. Pull pin turn, pin. 95% of time I angle it to the right.

Take the bucket off the loader arms and mount plow on the arms. Make an uprite bracket to attach your chain to on the loader boom and use the bucket tilt circuit to angle your blade.

I bolted two heavy angles about 4 inches long on the inside bottom of my bucket--each of the plow arms bolt into the angles and can pivot up from the bottom of the bucket so there is no down pressure except for the weight of the plow

Using a whole pickup style blade on a loader bucket mount makes the tractor/loader/blade awfully long.
Dad mounted the blade on my loader so it pins on right in place of the bucket, nice and short coupled,
Can't angle it but most of the areas I clear are short. If I want to push snow farther I can, like early
winter, push it way back with room for more.
I have concrete driveway, I carry weight on the blade to get right down to bare concrete, even peeled a
half inch layer of ice off driveway a week ago, hidden under 6 inches of snow.
Been using my tractor/loader/blade combination for almost 25 years now. Need to weld a new scraping
edge on blade for next winter for only the end time.

Did about the same thing on my tractor. Used the bale spear plate and machined some brackets to pin the truck blade to. Works great for theearly season snow storms before the yard is frozen. This time of year i have the bucket back on for busting through hard packed drifts and piling it higher.
