    We have over 4 acres of sidewalks to do. We will be using two bobcats do you guys say use a 8' box or a 7.5' plow. Some areas will need a box because we have to take it out of a enclosed area.But should i use one of each. Also if i use a plow it has to have a rubber cutting edge so will i need feet on the plow so it does not constantly trip. How do rubber edges work compared to metal.

    Thanks for the help.

    all side walks are concrete (about 4-5 years old)
    Thanks for the input so far. Never seen the blizzard product (no good dealer near me, but i will check out there web site)prsport .

    Just checked Blizzard site out! your right the 810ss looks like the perfect deal to do both applications. Any one know how much they run?

    Unless they are six feet wide and of course the blades not 8 feet angled.

    The side walks go all the way around a retail center in Novi. Some walks are 14' wide but most are about 8' wide. No 4' walks
