    I was wondering if it can handle being used to move some snow piles. Most piles are fairly small, with the biggest being about 30ft wide by 20ft deep and only about 6ft high. I need to move the piles I've made with my trucks, either push them straight back and stacked or relocate it bucket by bucket.

    The reason I ask is this is the only loader I can find locally that is availabe immeadiatly.

    Thanks for your input

    That little machine should move those piles for you. Does it have a cab and heat?

    Thanks for the reply

    It doesn't have a cab........which sucks. But I'm fairly used to it, I have a B series Kubota that also doesn't have a cab

    The R520 is 9000 lbs and 49 hp so it should get the job done...I was just wondering if anyone had first hand experience with it

    thanks
