    I had a buddy what wanted to ride along with me to see what this was all about. I gave him a ride for his money. This was a good storm for him to get his feet wet on. He claimed it was quite the production for him to see. He took a couple videos:

    You should get a pusher for that loader. They work sweet for jobs like that.

    awsome videos! I love the one of the loader. im a heavy equipment guy myself! I love it when the skidsteers make a pile as big as they can get it, then i come through with the wheel loader and hit it as fast as I can to get through it. Usually sends the snow right back from where they cleaned it, but its still fun, lol. At least you have gotten some snow. We have had one snow where we got to push and it was about an inch.

    Everyone I talked to around town was taking the pushers off, it was just too much snow to use a pusher unless you had a small pusher or very large machine.

    Skid Steers are damn useful though. Manuverable little suckers, I'll give them that. We're looking into buying a Cat 257B MTL.
