    not trying to stop a sale, but a 16ft. pusher is a little big on a 444j. They are big and bulky to use and in deep snow not easy to push.

    I have a new Komatsu WA200, same size as a 444 basically and I can push to a stop with a 16' Danials, otherwise I'd be driving down south of Chicago to buy that thing.

    I had a 544G tc. and it did handle a 14ft. pusher without a problem in normal snow conditions. However, if we had wet or deep snows the loader struggled to push it. I have a few other guys in the area that have had the same problem with the bigger pushers. Not that I wanted to imply it wouldn't work, just probably not the best pusher for a 444j loader. The L60/70/35 Volvo's we ran in the past few years were in the same situation. Heavy. wet snows and sometimes we just used a bucket to get some of the stuff moved.

    we us a few 444's and 544's. that pusher is to big for a 444 a 544 can handle it yes the 444 will handle it in a light 1-2 inch storm. But you get 2-4 on the ground you wont move it.

    That's a nice looking Avalanche. The price is right, just need a big machine to push it...
