    It is a Bobcat MT 52 like a Dingo. A local rental place has it for rent. Not really sure where you could use this but I had never seen anything like it. I wish I knew where I could use it I would like to play around with it!

    That box looks a little big for that unit. It would be my guess that the snow would build up quickly and the bobcat would lose traction. Like to see it in action.

    hate to be the guy running it...it would be colder then running a blower because you are not walking to build up any body heat

    That little Bobcat has some balls just like my Tracked Toro Dingo does. It gets a ton better traction in the snow then my buddies Bobcat 443 wheeled unit.
    I would love to find a pusher box like that to try out in front of my Toro.

    I just dont see it happening. I run one of those walk behind bobcats but only when I have to. They do have a use but they are so frustrating to run when I am used to a 7753 and a 773, like using a teaspoon to fill the pool. There just isnt the weight to hold much traction. I cant believe that thing is going to move that pusher full of snow very far. The Bob-Tach on the front is built the same as the real bobcats are, so technically you can put almost any attachment on that machine that you can attach to the real ones. I suspect it will work fine until it fills with snow.

    i love those little machines they can do anything and are very small. i rented the boxer version with treads atleast 10 times during the srping to do many jobs but i never thought of them with a snow pusher

    This has to be some kind of a joke. Since its a bobcat, it would have a bobcat quick attach plate. So I can bet they just put in on there to move.

    If it was 4' wide I might believe it.

    it would probley work better with a snow blower so it dosent have to push all of the weight that will build up

    It seems like if you put a plow on it, it may be ok for pushing sidewalks but other than that i can't see that box being effective. We have a simalar dingo 320D, but i all we use it for is moving boxes and plays aroundd the shop in a pinch.
