    We have 16 loaders over 2.5 yd equipped with different attatchments like blades and pushers. We also have some smaller units like Kubota 125's with snow wings (3) and 570 Case loaders with snowwings and buckets (quick attatch) and some skid steers, etc.....

    What is the biggest pusher you can get away with on a machine that size? Also what types of accounts do those machines service the best? Thanks.

    Very nice machine. Judging by your photo album, I take it your a big Case guy?

    What do you do with all the equipment in the summer months? I'm kind of hoping you tell me nothing and all you do is plow snow because I'm so interested in how some guys do that. I would love to only plow snow on a large scale.

    Well I am not sure of exactly how big you a pusher youcould go with but we have pushed 20ft of snow pusher with a similar sized machine. We use our loaders for mostly large industrial and commercial account. We try and set up the machine to have 4 to 5 hours work per unit/location. Seems to work quite well for us.

    Yes we are quite commited to Case. We have over 25 Case machines in the fleet. We have had good luck with them and when you standardize a fleet shopping and service of equipment gets a little easier. So we have stuck with them for a number of years now. We also get great support from our local dealers.

    All we do is plow snow. Your right;in the summer we park everything and wait for the following winter

    Now I'm very envious. I have talked for years of being able to stop landscaping and just do snow, but I am not quite there. I have been growing very quickly, I am in my third year plowing and I am doing 100% commercial lots with stuff such as Lowes. But the budgeting is just not there yet to be able to shut down for 3 seasons. If you don't mind me asking, did you start right out only doing plowing? Or did you stop services during other seasons?

    Nice Machine. I could help you find some work for those loaders. We are busiest in the summer and we plow snow just to keep busy and pay a few bills. Have the Case loaders improved in quality in the last 10 20 years? Years ago we had a case W20, W30 and a 580 RT Backhoe and they seemed to wear out quickly. One thing I liked about the case loaders we had was at the time the cab was mounted to the front end of the loader instead of the rear and they seemed to turn better when pushing snow when compared to our CAT s that are the same as you new case.

    Well I used to be in the trucking and excavating business but about 8 years ago I decided to only plow snow. I am not as young as I used to be. :blush2:

    W20, W30, LOL!! Now that was a few models ago. We have been running the new series of Case loaders since the mid 1990's. They have great durability and resale has been very good, We are very happy with the product and feel it compares very well against any other manufacturers current efforts.

    Comparing the new Case loaders to W20's or 30's is like me comparing your Cat's to old 922 straight frame machines tymusic

    Nice loader...Those loaders are made in my home town of Fargo ND, I actually have a buddy who is an engineer on the 621's. Last Year the college I work for just purchased an 821...we run to 821''s and a JD 644...actually picked it up at the plant...I like the Case loaders too....they have out pushed our JD loader by a ton. I have pics of ours on my member page.

    Wow you have some great pics. We have a couple of 821's too. They do push like crazy!! Nothing it seems stops them. That is why we are now buying 621's. They are a little more forgiving on things like curbs and islands. :)
