    We had about a foot of snow here in Jericho Vermont. I was out of town so had our old guy clear the driveway and then I cleaned things up with the toolcat. I love winter and SNOW!

    works great for my job

    For me it works well. I have a long and steer driveway (1500 feet with about 200 elevation) and with chains on this thing works well. I got it last year and didn't have chains and got stuck multiple times despite 4wd.

    I love the 4 wheel steer because makes maneuvering a snap - think the radius is something like 20 feet. It isn't real fast - 10 mph in low range and 18 in high but again that is more than enough for me. With heat, AC, and great sitelines for plowing, it works wonders for me. I even have a front mounted sand spreader from Herd that works well when things get icy.

    The big downside for most people is they are expensive - I think they start in the high $30's now.

    Hello neighbor...

    Tuesday afternoon we measured 15" in town.

    Tuesday night we measured 23" on the mountain.

    Nice rig... I like the Toolcat. Did you get it from Essex Equipment?

    What kind of chains do you use on your toolcat?

    sorry don't know the brand of chain

    but they are from somewhere in norway or finland and are very aggressive with c shaped bits facing the snow. I think they would be pretty problematic on pavement.
