    Is there a dealer in Indy or cincy? I am about half way between both and I am wanting to purchase a unit if there is a dealer close.

    The loader is 75HP and weighs about 10,000 lbs. Kage recommended a larger unit 9' or 10' but I work in tight quarters and the 8' is perfect for what we do. The 8' Snowfire was $5,600.00. We subsequently purchased the poly edge to replace the steel cutting edge on the blade, that was another $450.00.

    Another shot with the pusher detached. You can see how the steel edge scuffed up this driveway.

    So your suggesting the poly over steel edge? Also how do like that kubota? Seen one at a show but never ran one. I have a new s650BC

    I would say steel if you are doing parking lots and roads. It's too aggressive for a seal coated driveway. I really like the Kubota, very roomy cab, great visibility, outstanding performance and top notch fit & finish.

    Typical day at the office. I love my job! Snow is just a way to pass the time.
