    Received a call on Monday letting me know that my plow was in. Went and picked it up yesterday and then I had to play with my new toy :D. Plug and play, everything works off the joysticks. Had to swap a couple hyd. lines so the right wing would function the way that I wanted and adjust the flow. Looks like a very well built unit, can't wait to get the Snow Wolfs on and put it to the test.

    That is going to be a VERY productive setup with that plow & the wolf paws. Awsome!

    The only thing that would make it better, is if it had a "bob" in front of the "cat" :jester:

    btw, what size snowwing is that?

    Thanks. It's the 8'-13'. Before I bought the Cat I did look in to BobCat but the dealer wouldn't give me the time of day. Oh well, I'm happy with my Cat.

    Does the entire plow function on the machine's controls or does it have a separate switch or control for the plow?

    Awesome! Most likely the next investment to go on our 325 Deere.
    is it a 8-12 or 9-13?

    Thanks guys! Yes, all plow functions run off the machines controls. From what I understand this is something HLA just started. It's a 8-13.

    You have to run counterweights?

    Thanks Looking at this plow or a machinability. The machinability has it's own control though, seems like it would be alot nicer to run on the loader controls

    I was wondering the samething. Tipping load of the 262C is around 2700 lbs and the blade is only 1400 lbs. I thinking it would be nice to have the extra counter weight, but we will see how it goes without it.

    been told by my dealer to run counterweights if I install the blade on my 325 Deere. Think your machine is slightly heavier.

    My bad, 2700 lbs is operating load not tipping load. Tipping load is 5400 lbs. 262C weighs in at 7968 lbs without the counter weight and your 325 is around 8390 lbs. I think we will be just fine without the added counter weight.

    Gave my cat a bath today!

    Yup, washed her up, did some maintenance, engine oil and filter, air, hyd, fuel filters, checked drive chain tension and oil, painted my wheels and hubs, put a mini liberty led on the roof and swapped the VTS to the WolfPaws! Only thing left is to fluid film the VTS, plow and machine. Here is a video I took after I was done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBDRDtPJ5_U&feature=youtube_gdata_player
