    Who is using these in the snow and how well do they work and what can you compare it to? Also what size blade/pusher/ bucket are you using?

    I've got a 212 but never had enough snow down here to use it.

    My Father has a 212s. We use a COMPACT 10 FT Snow Pusher. It works great.

    We use a JCB 212 for Snow Plowing. A very agile piece of equipment. We use a 10' Daniels wing plow (straight plow) on the machine. The machine works great as a plow unit. Seems to fall in between a small loader and a larger Bobcat, IMO. A little pricey to maintain.

    We have a 212S with a 10ft Avalanche pusher. Have been running that set up since new...almost 10 years now with no problems. We replace fluids as per the book and besides a new battery, tires and some hydraulic lines and valves (up front at the q/a) the machine hasn't asked for anything really. We'll be selling ours in the spring as we have no use for a r/t backhoe anymore. The 4 wheel steering is pretty handy when cutting aound islands and obstacles.
