    I just got a quote for my new bobcat s250 and need to get a 10ft pusher. How are yours working / problems that you have run into ?? I am in the chicago area and went out to see the Daniels last week (Great Stuff I must say), But I would like to get some feed back before picking it up....Also went to see the Arctic unit. I did not like it or the high cost of it...

    as long as we are on the subject, how well do Skid steers work with pusher style blades? Can you still turn and get going with a 10' box plow? Just wondering, I am also thinking of the exact set-up, but heard that they are only good cleaning up trails from the truck plows, and that the skid steers aren't the primary snow removal equipment. Thanks

    There are 2 big parking lots close to my job and thats all they use are skidsteers with 10 boxes on them. I was amazed by the amount of snow they pushed compared to a truck with a 10ft straight blade. Sold me right there... Thats why I am ordering one soon as some more checks come thru the door...for next season I think...

    Got a 8' Daniels Box on my Case 75XT and love it. Depends which size machine you have as to which size box to get. Talk to Greg at Daniels, he's a good guy. The trip edge is also a nice feature.

    8' curtis with a rubber edge is great for manholes in parking lots...the key is not to take too big of a bite with the box or you will lose traction....the box accumulates alot more than a plow blade and contains most of it! :waving:

    Ordered it in October last year but did not come in till March. It worked great but gave up that contract pain in the ...

    cost $3000 take $2000

    10' push on an S185

    I went to my bobcat dealer and the salesman told me I wouldn't have any trouble pushing a 10 footer on my machine, any thoughts from you guys?

    Your dealer is on crack. an 8' is all you want on a s185. 8' are for medium frame machines. 10' for large frame machines. Like the S220, S250, S300, A300. 12' is for the gehl 7810 or cat 908 mini wheel loader.

    Depends on machine, use, weight of snow, fluffy or packing, job site and 100s of other variables. I use a Protech 8ft. on 50hp Kubota and love it. Chose 8ft over 10ft primarily so I wouldn't be over width when trailering it on machine. Also very easy to maneuver in lot that has activity 24hrs. a day.

    Oops forgot most manufactures web sites have that list recommendations for various machines. Bigger isn't always better.
