Awesome, keep us posted on how everything goes with your bobcat.
The snowblower doesn't require the valve. You can't really see it in the picture, but it was delivered with the snowblower attached. Before I took delivery I met the dealer at his lot, got a primer on how to connect and disconnect the snowblower, and took a quick spin around the neighborhood in the UTV.What's an auxiliary relief kit due? I use the aux hoses for my snowblower, (as soon as it snows).
I was debating not getting the snow blade, but I think the hydraulic angling will prove worthwhile. Last year we got a lot of wet, slushy snow that my old snowblower couldn't throw, the plow would push it like a miniature tidal wave down the driveway.I didn't get the snow blade because we get too much snow here in northern Maine, and I bought the snowblower and bucket also.
Dealer finally received the snowblower and installed it this week. I'm still working on mounting my strobes.
Appears to be internal, I don't see anything different externally or with the QD.Looks good! Is the aux relief valve internal or is it outside on the quick disconect?

I think the valve was under a hundred bucks, wasn't billed separately.Thank you for the info! How much did they charge you for the valve? I hope the headlights are high enough to clear the plow when it's raised. I was looking at it last night. Might need a light kit for the front.
Excellent, thank you! I just ran my strobes to power (cig lighter). I want to remove the lights and power box in the summer so i skipped wiring in a switch. All i need now is snow!I think the valve was under a hundred bucks, wasn't billed separately.
Depending how far I raise the blade and the tilt, headlights usually clear the plow. With my old ATV setup I used the winch for plow lift, so rarely raised the plow blade very high.
I'll probably end up adding low-profile LED lighting on the roof, mostly for better lighting off to the side -- I'll decide after we get some real snow, but will run an extra switched power lead up when I install the strobes, just tape it off for now.
