    Great idea for a thread. Nothing against pickups and plows but it is nice to see some of the other equipment out there. Here is my Bobcat S300 w/8ft. snow pusher after an 8" snowfall. The third picture is of me driving and my 2 year old daughter riding along. She loves to ride along and push snow, but she always falls asleep after 5 minutes. Sure makes it hard to drive and hold here head up at the same time.

    Something we worked up last year. Custom made front and rear plows & mounts. 3 days after we finished we got hit with the blizzard last Feb.

    you guys think that case can handle that pusher?lol I think he would be safe to step up a few feet, dont ya think? Unless the picture is deceving, but it looks like a 8 footer.

    Here's a couple, trying to find the one of our JCB. These are pics of one of my subs loaders, a JD 544G with an 18' ProTech. I'll keep looking for the others. Maybe BigDog has them. ;) :D

    Actually the pusher you see in the pusher is one that I bought from QuickAttach. It isn't a pro-tech. The only thing I don't like about it is that they only give you two adjustment holes for the skid shoes on the side. So you either have the cutting blade about 3/4" below the skid shoes or if you put them in the other hole the cutting blade runs about 1/4" above the skid shoes and leaves snow behind. I run it below the skid shoes. It does a great job on pavement but you have to use your controls to keep it off of the gravel like I am doing in the pictures above. As far a traction goes I havn't had a problem yet. You can't do a lot of turning with it if you have a full load. If you are pushing straight ahead you won't have any problems. I bought the 8 footer just because I couldn't get a diffinitive answere out of anyone about whether the 10ft would be to large for my machine. All of the dealers I talked to said, "You have plenty of power with that machine to push a 10 foot box." It doesn't matter how much power you have if you can't get it to the ground. I would rather have to make a couple extra passes, than have to fight it all of the time. Plus the 8 ft. works well for trasport through town. With the 2 speed I just road the machine to different jobs through town. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Just picked this one up from Hertz at the start of the season. It has a 14' pusher that is nice for the 2" ers but i think will struggle with a lot of heavy snow. Not that i would know about lots of snow this year.!

    I second that, maybe there is a reason for the small pusher, I mean after all it is a case:D
