On the PK w/fel  it has a snow plow frame option , I put it on in fall but the last snow storm I was working a double shift so my wife did the best she could using it in the freezing sleet/rain , it left big chucks of ice all over the place that I wouldn't dare try moving with the blade . Instead of melting this past week the weather stayed cold and now a storm coming tonight I dug the bucket back out and put it in the garage so after plowing I'll switch back and try to remove the ice chunks and  move the snow further away from the driveway . Here's an old thread of how the bucket comes off and blade goes on.

Nice looking PK. Our forecast is for snow, then freezing rain, and then snow again. The piles are already high and I'm running out of room. I'll wait until all precipitation is over and then use my FEL to put the slush out of the way. I'm going to the town garage for a 5 gal bucket of sand and salt today. I hope that they haven't run out. Good Luck, Rick

That's slick!  I like the angle feature.  I don't have that on my setup, but do use the curl with teh blade, and find myself using that on almost every pass.  Helps a lot when pushing snow up and over...don't lose any over the blade.  I think if I had to choose though, I'd take the angle feature!  Nice!
