We have an H90 Hough and we run a 16ft pusher with ease. I would think a 12 or 14 would be tops for the H30

H30's are small, especially the gassers. Big difference btw an H30, 60, and 90. I'd say 10' would be perfect, maybe 12' max, but that would be pushing it on larger storms and it would get horse sh!t fuel economy doing so. It is only 81hp and not nearly the torque of a diesel. I'll bet I know the machine you are talking about. Looks like a nice machine for the price. The only reason it's not in my yard is b/c it's a gas model.

HP rating is big. Most wouldn't recomend putting a 12'-14' box on an 85hp skidsteer, and those are turbo diesels.
Diesel trucks with plows that are too heavy for them, and spreaders loaded too heavy for them too
