    Nice set up, what size skid steer is that and how does it handle that big of a plow.

    It's a new holland 988 with loaded tires, this set up can move snow fast. We have to rebuild the front clevis pins 1-2 times per season due to the weight of the blade and $2000.00 in tires each year. If the snow is heavy the wings fold down to 9 feet.

    Dave;
    Next time you order a set of tires ask the tire shop to sipe them. It sure makes a big difference in the snow and on ice. also look at using recap tires, with your casings they should cost less then $200 each.
    I run 2 each 975 bobcats which use 1500:19.5 tires @ $515 each new or $189 caps each and get 1000 hours out of a set.
