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.
Appears to be internal, I don't see anything different externally or with the QD.
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.
