    Just picked up a 751 with 3428 hours today. It seems to have a lot less power then my 763, which has a 8 ft box on it. What is a recommended size box/blade for this machine? It will be used at a condo complex, 73 driveways, roughly 1.3 miles of side walk. Will work with the 763 and a cat 950f. Mostly will be used for streets and drives.

    I would go with a 6.5' or 7' snow bucket. I assume it's not a 2-speed so a box or blade might not be to productive.

    My 753 and 763 seem to push pretty equally more of a mass/traction thing rather than HP in snow for me. I usually run 7.5 strait blades but not shy on running a 9' blade.

    We run a 9' power angle on our 753. It's not a rigid mount so we don't have any traction issues
