Snow Pusher for Tractor HLA 1500 Series Pusher



The HLA Snow Pusher for tractors is the best snow removal attachment for most tractor owners in America. The open bottom makes it way more efficient at moving snow than a bucket, the side walls prevent wind rows like a snow plow creates, the backdrag allows you to pull snow right from the edge of a garage or retaining wall or parked car, and a snow pusher is so much less expensive than a snowblower.

So, a snow pusher is better than a snow plow and cheaper than a snowblower. Why HLA? Well the folks at HLA created the most robust, well-built and smartly-designed snow pusher we have found yet—a welded double end-wall means no internal cross-bracing to trap snow, a radiused back keeps snow rolling forward as you push, and a fully-enclosed backdrag that pulls serious snow compared to the competition’s which feel like afterthoughts. And that’s not even the full list of features that set HLA apart.

The 1500 Series is best for most subcompact and small compact tractor owners and is available in widths from 54 to 72 inches.

If you’re new to the idea of a snow pusher or if you aren’t sure why we prefer it over a snow plow, check out our videos below comparing the two. But if you already know about a snow pusher and and just need to decide on the right size for your tractor or skidsteer, read on below.

Key advantages of the HLA Snow Pusher Design include:

  • Radius back which releases snow instead of letting it stick
  • Reinforced & tapered welded, double-wall side panels eliminate cross braces that trap snow
  • Totally enclosed backdrag option so snow can’t escape. No other pusher has this feature (fully enclosed on 1500 and 1800 series only)!
  • Bolt-on quick attach frame for more flexibility over time (JDQA, SSQA, and Yanmar Quick Attach available)
  • Reversible, replaceable, and adjustable scraping edges (steel or rubber standard, UHMW upgrade)
  • Replaceable, replaceable, and adjustable skid runners (steel standard, UHMW upgrade)

HLA 1500 Snow Pusher – Types of Cutting Edge

UHMW: (sometimes called poly or plastic) is best summed up by saying “it cuts like steel, but protects like rubber.” Great wear properties, cuts well through packed snow, very quiet, protective of paved/concrete surfaces. Lasts nearly as long as steel. UHMW is an acronym that stands for Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene.

Rubber: Protective of paved/concrete surfaces, very quiet, doesn’t cut packed snow at all, shortest life span.

Steel: Wears very well, cuts packed snow very well, but is hard on paved/concrete surfaces, leaves rust stains, and is loud. Great for gravel, stone, and other unpaved surfaces.

***NOTE: UHMW edges are cut to length, ready for you to drill out and add your own hardware.***

UHMW Installation is easy! This material cuts similar to wood, so the same tools can be used. Use the existing holes on the pusher components as your template. Then, drill out the piece of UHMW with a multipurpose drill bit matching the hole diameter. For backdrags and main edges, use 1/2″ x 3″ bolts with washers and lock nuts. No backer bars required.


Every tractor utilizing a front-end loader needs counterweight. How much is specified in your tractor or loader manual. But in addition to safety, counterweight will improve your traction significant, something especially critical during the snowy months of the year.

*Consult your owner’s manual to see recommended ballast weight when operating a loader. Along with increased safety, you will gain an increase in traction which can be especially helpful in snow, ice, and mud.

The Hitch Hanger is a bracket that attaches with a simple strap connection to your quick hitch, allowing you to hang three suitcase weights (41or 70 lb) off to the side, while still keeping the connection to your quick hitch and your three-point attachment.


The answer to this is tractor specific, but your manual should indicate the recommended rear ballast or counterweight to balance against your front-end loader. This can be in the form of liquid ballast in you wheels, wheel weights, and the weight of the rear attachment itself. But often this is not enough weight to hit the manufacturer recommended total. Enter the hitch hanger, which provides a solution to gain that additional weight without increasing your footprint.


A 3-Pt Hitch does not product any down-pressure, so if you are running a ground engaging attachment you’re reliant upon the weight of that attachment for all of its digging power. This includes plows, discs, pluggers, aerators, tillers, and box-blades or graders. Some times the attachment will have a shelf for adding weight, but many do not. Using our Hitch Hangers is a great way to gain downward force for that attachment, providing better, faster results.

Priced per pair (1 left, 1 right) w/ 6 suitcase weights of your choosing.
