    If you do drives and small lots here is the ticket. This is part of our small plow fleet.:gunsfiring: :gunsfiring: :gunsfiring:

    how bout some pics of the Kubota?...how do you like the Parallel lift on that Bobcat?...do you mainly load trucks in the summer, i've heard they are not good at all if you want to do any digging below the tires, i've never run them...i personally like the radial booms just fine

    You should get a backblade/ rear plow on that toolcat.. a company here in grand rapids just got a toolcat outfitted with a 9'2" boss v on the front and a 12ft "SWINGWiNG" on the rear....Wow is that a machine....they also made theirs completely street legal and put cooper snow tires (cooper m+s...the same as my truck has) on it for the winter. They absolutely love it so I'm sure you will too! looks real nice!

    We also have mud/snows on toolcat. Loader has 7'' truck snows on it, plowing like a 6 wheel dump.

    RGJLAWN,

    Nice pics of equipment, but seeing pics of that shop got my keyboard wet with the drool. What are the dimensions of that place?

    OH MAN what a setup!!! I really want a 6*6 polaris ranger with plow, looks like that kabota UTV sure can handle quite a bit with that blizzard on there. AMAZING, congratulations!!

    Hate to break it to you. But the belt driven tranny on that polaris is not good for plowing at all. Save your money and get the diesel kubota RTV. Real tranny and as you can see can handle a blizzard 680 just fine.


    Other wise. Dude love the shop. Reminds me of the shop at the golf course I work for had.

    Nice looking units….How do you like the toolcat? I am interested in one but the price is a little scary for a small unit. Does it have enough weight and HP to push big snow? Have you used a blower on it? Can it do as much as a compact tractor?

    Thanks for the help

    SD-Dave :drinkup:

    Ps. How’s the Kubota seems like a decent choice for far less $$$

    toolcat by far the best. we have 8' boss on it. it plows great. it could run blower but blade is 10 times faster.:gunsfiring:

    blows compact tractor away, weights 5000, blower works great on them but blade is 10 times faster. kubota is great for small drives or lot but does not come close to cat. toolcat is the way to go if your doing much plowing at all. we road ours in a 5-7 mile area. we also put snow tires on it.

    Nice equipment, rgj. I haven't forgotten about giving you a call, just was busy with a bunch of stuff and snow. Also working on the RTV idea but narrowing the blade down to fit on walks. Should have it next week, weather permitting.

    Did you have to get different wheels for the M&S's on the Toolcat?
