    Can a Kubota M6800 handle a 12' foot pusher box?

    No way, man. You don't have enough horsepower or weight to push that big of a plow. You'd need something closer to 100hp for a 12' pusher and even then you'll need weight in the back or at least tires that are filled.

    10' is probably doable but I still think that's on the high end. 8' or 8'6" is more like it. You will have traction issues if you put anything too big out front.

    I agree with Camden, I think a 8 or 8.5ft would be about it. I have a 6 ft on a Kubota 5030, it does fine but I would not want any larger of a pusher. I'm not sure of the the specs of a M6800 but you might find that even thou it is 70 hp it may not weigh very much.

    Its a very light weight compact tractor, great for driveways. Even a 10 foot will give you trouble on long distances or heavy snow. Would be fine in small lots, except then to go from 1 lot to the other, your not legal. Go for a 8 or 9 foot Pro Tech compact. JM2C.
