    I am looking for anyone who owns or knows someone with experience with the Blizzard 8611ss on a skid. I will be buying a new Bobcat A 300 (85hp 3000 lbs op capacity) skid shortly.

    How fast does your track machine go. The bobcat I am looking at has a top speed of 12 mph. I have never pushed snow in a skid so I don't know if second gear has much pushing power.

    I know a few guys who run skids with 8611's, they all like them. That Bobcat will out push a truck if you can plow both ways with it. Try to put it in a site were you can do this.
    Personally I wouldnt waste my money purchasing a skid that will be used for snow work without 2 speed. They work great in "rabbit" mode for plowing. :drinkup:

    I love mine! Every kid on my street wants one! LOL! I love it, my opperators love it, and all of the other companies that work around me love it! Wish I could get all of my subs to dump the pushers and go with the blizzard!
