    We ran 16' Pro Tec last year on this machine. Going to try the Arctic and pulling the trigger on a 17' HD for this same loader. Any naysayers out there? Any reason I should be worried the L60 won't have enough ass? Like I said we ran a 16 last year and had A LOT of snow and it pushed just fine.

    Thx

    We run a cat it28g with a 16' pro tec rubber edge. Do to width we run a 14' arctic on the it28g when conditions don't allow us to run the pro tec. We use this on a zero tolerance property.
    Our machine is a little heavier and if we are feeding it with the skid steers, we can stop the cat with the pro tec in really heavy snow.
    If the lot isn't wide open you might be faster with the 14'. We have places we can't get with the 16'.
