    That's what I was kind of tthinking. Would a plow be better?

    Better question is would it be a good deal to trade a back up Plow Truck for It

    depends on the truck....and depends on what your expecting to do with the machine?? IMO, that size skid is a bit small to try and do much more than big sidewalks or a group of small driveways all right next to each other....


    BTW, that's an old machine...they quit making them back in the late 70's I think?

    That would be a perfect job for that little machine to load salt. Providing its reliable.

    i dont know if the salt price savings would justify getting rid of my back up rig if i cant really plow with it
