    I'm looking for something to do a lot of sidewalks that are 60" wide. I need to be able to put a small spreader on the back for calcium. All of the UTV's are way to big...I was hoping to be able to put a cab on it with a heater. Now it looks like an atv or a small skid steer...

    HELP!!! :help: :help:

    every think of a small CUT? compact utility tractor. they will take a nice plow or blower and salt hopper on back. plus there are cabs for most of them.

    HMMMM, A small skid loader could be used for so many other operations! The ATV could be used for other things as well, I don't know how good the cabs are that go on them. I have always used an ATV & never had a cab, a lot of difference in our temps I am sure. How can you get a small skid loader in a place that you can't get a UTV? There is a nice one displayed in the pictures forum. It is a Kubota RTV900. Good Luck pumpkin:

    We use skid loaders (Bobcat) and you can't go wrong with them. You can get them with enclose cabs and heaters ( some of the bigger ones even have AC). options include a snow blade, bucket at any with you want, snow blower. forks for handling pallets of salt/sand. you can get them with tracks.
    I seen a clip on one of these sites that showed a blade with wings that would out do 90% of the plows here.
    I believe that anyone that has ever been in business and had one would not do without it again.
    I also believe you could not go wrong with the CUT's

    Both types are use in summer as well.
