    Hey everyone, just seeing if people can help me get the jist of how many acres an hour plows will push. I've called companies and they say ahhh, I don't know, so I'm relying on people to help me. I know it all depends on how fast you push etc.

    A truck pick up with a 8.5'-9' blade ruffly does an acre an hour if I'm rite??
    Bobcat (size of skid?) with 2 speed with (size blade) does an hr?
    Tractor with just front blade (size) does an hr?
    Tractor with front (size?) and back blade (size?) will does an hr?

    and for Kicks
    Cat 932 front end loader with blade/box blade does an hr?

    I really appreciate everyone's advice and if someone doesn't agree please type your advice!
    Thanks Coleussmileyflag
