What size pusher for a NH ls170?

Never used a pusher before, just wanted to know what size pusher would be the right size for a New Holland LS170 7' or 8'? I am assuming it can handle larger than a 6'. Any information or advice is appreciated. thank you

Shawn, it looks like that machine has an ROC around 1700lbs, is that right? If so you should be able to go up to an 8ft unit without too many problems according to our calculations. Any of you guys in the field disagree?

Again 8 should be fine as long as you not wit till it is done snowing
Also depends on how long of a push you have
Depends on tires or traction
I ran an 8 footer on my 185 it was fine but again we were keeping the lots clear the whole storm and longest run was 200 yards on flat level ground
