    It doesn't snow here too much but I hope to spend about 100 hours in this rig this winter.
    I typically spend about 12 hours in it per event. It's a 10' pusher and thats my truck in the background. I have a plow for the truck too but I have found this setup to be much faster in large parking lots. I used the plow on the truck for one season and now all it does is collect dust in the shed. Sorry about the mud on the loader. Right b4 this pic was taken I had the passenger side track burried in a lake while trying to finish up a sea wall. After I got out of that mess I had to plow. Now the loader has new tracks and hopefully I won't have to do anymore work in a lake bed.

    That's a nice little set up. I used a Case skid steer down here one time when we got like a foot of wet snow and that thing would stop and spin the tires after just pushing straight with the regular bucket. Those tracks must really get good traction to move a 10' pusher. Good luck this year.payup

    If your currious about how I get the 10' pusher on the trailer the answer is I don't. The pusher stays on site.

    I'm in the "no snow belt" ....aka St. Louis

    I think I plowed slush 3 times last year. We are over due for some big storms.

    Ahh I see. That makes it expensive to have plowing equipment I guess, takes some time to make it pay off.

    The loader makes money in more ways than just plowing. Plowing is just something to do in the winter and is all extra spending money. Where this pic is taken I do 7 big commercial lots and I can drive the loader from job to job(the lots are all within .5 mile radius). Pic was taken last year.
