    So, this is the first year I will be doing larger snow removal jobs.

    I want to focus on small-medium residential complexes and commercial lots.

    This is the first year I will be using a skid steer for pushing and snow removal.

    A terex tsv-70.

    I am excited!

    I am wondering what everyone else using with their skids. Blade, box plow, snow bucket, etc.

    I live in canada and the snow never melts once it gets cold so we'll stack than haul when it gets to be too much depending on the contract.

    Don't have the contracts yet, but I'm very optomistic, so I want a setup for snow that is general purpose.

    Also, I would like to hear from anyone regarding experience with the terex tsv-70 or similar, snow or not.

    Or any other tips and suggestions for a first timer.

    We run a Terex wheeled SS with a 7' hydraulic plow blade.

    The SS is used only to do raised side walks at a large property so I do not know what it can handle in other applications.

    Pic of the SS is in my signature below.

    most biz will want hauling so I'm thinking snow bucket- with that size machine and normally dry snow would i need counter weights for loading a trailer with 100" bucket.

    can my machine handle a 2 yard bucket shouldn't be that bad right- if i lower the bucket when i start to feel it tip i know its too heavy. im worried about manhole covers and the like how come they don't invent a trip for a bucket.

    what about plow wings on a bucket anyone do this?

    i have seen guys do walmart lot fast by speeding down, not plowing, spinning around quickly, putting there bucket down and then continuing. i probably need snow tires for this though?

    i have heard of solid tires foam core, etc. what are the different applications for these types?

    opinions on bolt-on edges, poly, steel, etc.

    I have a couple of Terex TSR60's. I run 96" snow buckets on them with no problem. I also use 108" angle blades on them with no problem. I have found truck snow tires to put on the machine and it works great.
