    Very cool, looks to be in excellent shape too! It definitly moves faster than a skid steer would. Did you pick that up at the Ritchies auction last year in MTL, they sold around 50 of those old units. Some were in great shape like yours, and some were more like parts machines.

    To get rid of the snow it has to go somewhere, it makes perfect sence to me, put it on the road and take it away with a 4x4 or loader. If you windrow it onto the grass on the medians than you just end up with huge piles that you have to move later anyways. Niege has quite the outfit, I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

    Im actually suprised to see that too from Paul.

    Wouldnt it make sense to do the walks first, then the lot?

    Seems like a very efficient machine BTW.

    I'm sure he's gonna come back with a loader with a pusher or something and scrape it clean and remove the snow from the area. Seems logical to me.

    Yes that's exactly the way I'd do it. Having a windrow beside a side makes drifting and icing that much worse.

    People that plow with pickups vs. people that use heavy equipment are two different breeds!

    All the pickup people now are saying, no, not another push, the loader guys couldn't care less about that though.

    Those things are awesome.

    Just don't go sideways over a snow bank.

    It's true though. When I am all done and some jerk pushes his driveway out on to the freshly plowed road I want to kill him because it isn't just one push like I assume it would be with a loader or box.

    It drives 30 MPH, and yes we got it at Richies 8 years ago.
    I took your advice and fired myself.
    Thanks, its the only logical way I think it can be done.
    Yes usually we do, had a replacement driver who forgot those walks, so I wanted to have some fun.
    Thats what we did.
    On top of that JD you run out of room real fast
    Almost tipped it when I took it off a trailer once, the thing weighs 6 tons.
    My two brothers overturned my decision to fire myself, back to work I go. :laughing::drinkup:

    Ah yes, the village I live in has the exact model. They have been plowing sidewalks with it for decades it seems.
