    here are a few pics of the cat. its a th103. we have two of them and they are used for almost everything we can think of. its primarily used for moving lumber and unloading trucks but we plow and do snow removal with them also. here are a few action pics from moving the snow that came off the roof last night.

    Come on now be nice. Haven't you ever seen a telehandler on a job site, more people refer to them as a LULL(made by JLG). All the major equipment manufactures make them. It's amazing what you can do with these machine they are extremely versatile on job sites. Most have the ability to level the load, steer both set of wheels independently, side shift a load, etc. I can't figure out why people don't plow with them more, i'd stick a big pusher on the front of one.

    i use this machine everyday and i dont know what i would do without it. as for the plowing i use a 12' blade. i chose the blade over a pusher because the lot we have is much easier with a plow. put the full angle on it and just keep drivin. its especially nice because i push off a large retaining wall and i never need to get close... boom out for the last 10 seconds of your push and you never need to come within 15 feet of the edge... its not entirely necessary but it makes life a little easier. i am curious how the machine would handle a pusher... i know it would do pretty well but i would love to give it a good test to see what it can really do. its 35,000 lbs and i run chains so i would imagine i would be surprised :)

    looks awesome, when i worked housing construction we would use those all the time to get trusses, plywood, and shingles up to the top of the house. i loved seeing them on the job site because i knew my back would feel a lot better at the end of the day not having to carry and send stuff up all day.
