    Some times its nice to plow with the old stuff. I have in my fleet two old Case 1070 tractors with cab and push blades. Last storm we had enough snow that we needed them on the lots. These old tractors had no trouble keeping up with the new stuff.

    ive used a 2006 kubota too and this thing is just as nice. the only downfall is how slow the bucket moves and dumps. definitely keeps up though

    It doesn't need brakes, thats what the bucket is for! Good looking old Case. I'd assume its mostly origional?

    Nice machine you got there. I allways wanted a backhoe so I could dig up stumps. With a set of tire chains it would be just as good as 4wd.
