    Just bought a 2013 Mahindra xl28 diesel tractor. I have a snow blower for the three point hitch and a Loader on the front. I have a large driveway and if there is 3 or 4 inches it seems to take a long time with a snow blower. Wondering if a snow pusher would be a good idea for the bucket. If so a 7ft or an 8 foot. Don't know anyone who has used one.

    I don't think a pusher would be practical for a driveway.

    Don't think that small of tractor could push an 8" pusher. A plow you can windrow with would be best but may damage loader arms.

    I dont think an 8' pusher is a a good match for a 28 hp tractor!

    Use the loader to make piles, then blow the piles away.

    I got a 2816 mahindra been using it for 7 year now plowing snow and salting out of it with a fertilizer spreader. I think our pusher on it is around 7 feet. On real big snows and long pushes you just have to pick a direction and go straight because you can't steer it much. We love it for tight places were our trucks would take more time turning around. Never had any trouble with the machine

    We run an 8' light material bucket on our DX50 so i imagine you would want to stay 8' or less
