    Looks great. Are you planing on putting a pusher or just a regular plow on it?

    Very nice machine. That's what I actually wanted when I stumbled on a smokin deal on a Bobcat. I have probably 2k hours in a pair of 236b's from a former place of employment. Very nice all around machines.

    you could let the air out of the tires as long as there not filled with foam if you really wanted too

    kage is a nice system from what I've seen but my buddy looked into one on his CAT and for the price he bought a pusher and plow and still had $$$ left over.

    good machine, imo - you should back on when trailering so you don't break window....

    Nice machine, I have a 236 also but its not the B series. Plows like a champ. I have wings on the plow which made a huge difference when moving snow.

    Nice machine. Sucks it won't go in the garage (of course!!:realmad:) Does it have a block heater?
