    Does anyone here use Bobcat skid steers for plowing? If so, what do you think about tires vs. tracks?

    Also, what is the smallest size Bobcat that you would consider viable for light commercial plowing (banks, super markets, etc.)?

    Do you have any input on whether it is worth spending extra money for a snow pusher box on one of these?

    The smallest I would buy is a bobcat s185 or an s205.. TIRES. Tires are the way to go. Either a pusher box or plow with wings.
