    Yes, it's a Western Prodigy. Hope it is a good one, it's the first one the dealer has sold. I've used someone else's speedwing before, so it's not new to me. Should be fairly easy to use on the skid loader.
    Loader is a 2011. I bought it this spring with only 140 hours. Not much more than that on it now.

    Think its not a trip edge.

    Is that a western mount for a skiddy?

    It is a full trip. I know it's not ideal, but it should work OK.
    Yes, they make that for a skid now. All I needed to get was the hydraulic couplers.

    It is 8'6" pushing straight. You can pin the wings back if you want to, but the trailing side will move automatically when you angle the blade.

    The 8'6" is in scoop. It is the same as a blizzard speedwing. The wings move with cables and springs, so the operator doesn't have to think about where they are.
    I paid a little over $4,000 for it.

    Thanks, wish they offer it in a trip edge.

    Maybe Fisher will offer it Or maybe they will offer the XLS for a Skid steer.

    Finally got a good action shot. I'm not the operator, my employee runs it in a different area than me.
    Works very good for the location. It is used on a larger lot cleaning out for a payloader around curbs and islands.
    The wings don't like speedbumps well, they try to dig in. We found that it works best to pin the wings back for the areas that the speedbumps are.
    All in all, I am happy with this setup.

    Thats a nice rig! Good luck with it. Case has come a long way I love the rear visibility that they have now compared to the older ones.

    You run it in float mode when you around speed bumps

    Guy down the road bought one for his mini JD tractor
