    JD are you trying to prove its faster with a bucket. :D Have you ever tried stacking with a plow attached instead, that way you dont have to empty the bucket each time.

    im surprised more people dont use telehandlers. Since they have such a long reach and all for stacking snow up high

    unless you had extra cash laying around, i would think you would have to have practical use elsewhere in your business to keep a machine like that around. they can't be cheap, especially john deeres

    We use the pushers to push it up sometimes but if you notice he's already pushed that pile back almost 40 ft and in this case we feel the bucket was the right choice.

    Hopefully I don;t have to punch in and out. LOL
    This machine is 5 years old and it only used for snow.

    We run a 12 ft pusher on it but it would handle a 14ft easy.

    Another guy was running 2 of them and he traded his 544G in on another one. Sounds stupid but he says the guys liked running them better in the kind of lots they plowed. So that's when we decided to try one. I personally would rather drive a tractor but the telehandler is nice to have.

    Actually he didn't but he managed to bend the section back almost 1".

    I see what you mean now with the stacking. That snow looked heavy though and it bent where he overlapped the two stacks. Nice telehandler, the reach on that thing is so nice. Just something else I'll never have.:cry:
