    Just wondering if any used this machine to push snow. If so what size blade/box did you use? I tried a site search but came up empty. Thank you

    I plow with a PT80, an RC50, and a Brand new PT60 (First year for it)

    I can push an 8ft box with the 50 with out any problems.

    This season, the 50 and 60 will both live at a local hospital. One is going to run a brush, the other will use an 8ft snow bucket. I am also taking along a 7ft snow bucket just in case.

    Peterbilt, I just bought a 2004 RC-50. Do you know where I can find an aftermarket enclosed cab? Great set up btw!

    Thank you, What is parked in front of your PT80?[/QUOTE]

    I think he was refering to what's in front of it (PT80), in the photo of your shop. As I continue thinking (very dangerous) the tractor in question would be a Deere 244 loader. Can you confirm that P-bilt?

    I used a rc30 last winter on my personal driveway last winter, did alright, but it was small, but better than a shovel or walking behind a snowblower. The little 30 just floated above the snow just about everywhere, never got it stuck even driving up my piles, but i have never been a fan of the asv's.

    Uh-oh. I see this turning into a Bobcat vs ASV thread. Will the infamous Youtube video be shown or mentioned as proof of superiority? I wonder how that might go if they were on dirt instead of snow.
