Yes it can. The smallest Bobcat is the CT122 which is substantially larger and heavier.The SM2410 can also be outfitted at the same time as the optional loader and backhoe.
Meaning the MMM can stay on and be used when the BH is on?
Also, is there an equivalent Bobcat model to this one?
Congrats! Boy, it will be a LOOOOONG weekend of waiting.I just bought a Kioti CS2410 with FEL, Backhoe, Front Mount Snow Blower and Industrial Tires. It should be delivered this Monday 11-12-12. Needless to say I'm looking forward to having it before the heavy snows.
:sidelaughNOTE to ONESELF. NEVER remove the FEL before you remove the backhoe.
OK. I'll add some zest to the thread. A story, or rather, let me share with you a bit about what not to do with your tractor. At this point in time, I'm not a newbie to tractors. But I still make mistakes even though I do my very best to follow safety ~ actually I overdue the safety thing.
Except for this one time. ....
So there I was, ready to take off the backhoe and FEL. I wanted to unload the backhoe kitty corner and the FEL to the rear wall. But I couldn't get the tractor aligned to the corner to dismount the backhoe unless I took the FEL off first. Not problem, a pin here, a wiggle there, releive the hydraulic pressure, remove lines and presto ! I was ever so slowly pulling away from the FEL. What an awesome feeling to so easily remove the FEL and just drive away from it.
Had I not been backing up at a snails pace I would have ended up in the ceiling of the garage.
Because ...... all the sudden the front end of the tractor started to rise like a slow rising moon above the edge of the world. Since I was going at a crawl for speed, I was able to stop. And there I sat, teeter tottering like a kid on a seesaw. The rear wheels were the pivot point between the front end and the weight of the backhoe. I was in the middle. Rising and falling like a gently rolling wave on the ocean. Rising up to the ceiling rafters, and then drifting back down to the garage floor.
I wondered. If I tried to get off the seat, would the front end of the tractor end up in the ceiling? Uhmmm .... guess it was better to stay on the seat. But I couldn't backup anymore because I had no steering. I finally realized I could put the backhoe bucket down ...... oh what a relief that was. Then I gently applied enough down force to put the front end down with enough pressure to steer the tractor.
I made it by moving as slowly as one can go on a tractor. Got the backhoe dismounted.
Left the tractor right where it was, shut the lights off in the garage and spent the next few hours in the outhouse.
But don't tell anyone you heard this from me. TAKE the backhoe off first, then the FEL.
Yes it is a hydraulic chute rotation. The oem electric chute deflector kit and skid shoes are on back order. The blower chute can be aimed so it is throwing snow almost behind you. You can drive out to the edge of the driveway and throw snow backwards.Great story!! I learned several things (hopefully I won't ever make the same mistake, but if I do maybe I will remember the backhoe bucket trick).
By the way, nice snowblower! Is that hydraulic chute rotation?
