    I wanted to know how fast the 10 foot pusher plow on a s185 compared to a truck plowing in a big parking lot

    First a 10' is a tad to much for a S185. 8' is plenty.

    As for productivity over a truck. That depends on many factors. Including but not limited too. Lot lay out, snow placement, type of business, speed at which you can plow, experience of operator, Size of plow on truck, etc.

    But usually one 8' protech will out push two 7.5' trucks.

    I have a 10' pro-tech on my Deere 244J and it works great...out plows a 9' plow by almost 150% in efficiency...

    Well worth the investment...great for parking lots...not great for roads

    I agree with others...go with a 8' unit that is built for your machine...too much pusher will frustrate you.
