Front loaders are commonly used to remove snow especially from sidewalks parking lots and other areas too small for using snowplows and other heavy equipment. They are sometimes used as snowplows with a snowplow attachment but commonly have a bucket or snowbasket which can also be used to load snow into the rear compartment of a snowplow or dump truck.
While the front-end loaders on CUT size tractors are capable of many tasks given their relatively small size and low capacities when compared to commercial loaders the compact loaders can be made more useful with some simple options. A toothbar is commonly added to the front edge of a loader bucket to aid with digging. Some loaders are equipped with a quick coupler otherwise known as a quick attach (QA) system. The QA system allows the bucket to be removed easily and other tools to be added in its place. Common additions include a set of pallet forks for lifting pallets of goods or a bale spear for lifting hay bales.
John Deere manufactures a semi-curved loader design that does not feature the one piece curved arm but also is not of the traditional two piece design. New Holland introduced a compact loader with a one piece curved arm on its compact utility tractors similar one piece curved arm loaders are now available on compact tractors on many brands including Case IH/Farmall and some Montana and Kioti tractors. Kubota markets traditional loader designs on most of its compact tractors but now features a semi-curved loader design similar to the John Deere loader design on several of its small tractors.
