A bucket is a slow process for removing snow. You fill up the bucket, then have to dump it someplace. I used the bucket on my EF1D two years ago when we got 21 inches in one storm. It works fine, but is a slow process. After that I got my blade hooked up on the 716H. We then had an 8 inch snow and the blade worked great in that. I hope to get time to set up a snowblower before we get any snow this winter.

As you can see below I have used the bucket for snow removal. Not really enough lift to be effective at piling up after moving the snow. I did trip the bucket, and ride it as a blade like the skid steer guys do to scrape the packed snow off the driveway.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
