    Good job. I have an account with curbs like that, but maybe a little taller. PITA! You can only push so far, even though you wish you could go 3' farther.

    If I didn't need to clean along the building I would have used the deere like I did before. Curbs no problem. Snowblower on the back would be better and faster. I Sold my snowblower for my skid this fall. Dont know why.

    Thanks Everyone. That place takes a half day to clean up. Well I did have a pusssy cat at one point in time, but she passed on. The other Cat was a 246B and got stolen last Jan. 1st winter for this Cat, lots of power it moves snow just as good as it did dirt this summer. Thumbs Up.

    A compact Cat loader would be nice one day.

    That bucket is a Kijiji John. Picked it up in Owen sound years ago It was from a tractor, A lil Plasma cutting the old mount and some welding a quick attach plate. Its 9' Wide has a nice cutting edge on it Ive hit plenty of curbs with it.

    Tractor is a 6430.

    Mixed some salt today. With all the diesel equipment and 2 diesel trucks one sure generates allot of used oil.

    That's not oil, it's molasses

    Yup. As if I'd mix oil into salt. LOL It was more salt brine I cut it too much.

    Ya it doesn't take much, I did the same thing the first time I tried it. If X amount is good more should be better, NO it's not. I actually found less is better, especially if you don't use it right away. Sure smells good though:D
