    I have a backhoe with a 14" pusher. I'm looking to get a new one for a different site, but think I a loader size instead of the backhoe, I almost never have a problem pushing the 14' one even with 12" of heavy stuff. I think I want to get a 12' that's 54" tall, because I need to carry snow between cars a very long distance and don't want the spill off but still get the volume... I'm thinking about the steel edge avalanche LDAT400-12 (52" tall)or LDAT444-12 (44" tall) or Pro-tech IS12L. I don't think the pusher weight will be a problem because it weighs 2400lbs and the machine will lift 7000lbs.

    Anyone use a loader size on a large backhoe? Thanks
