    The newest addition to the fleet. Nice clean machine best of all everything fully works.It will be getting a coat of paint and lettered. The swinger is my yard machine but i do have soft cover for it. We did use it during the blizzard to do 30 accounts it saved me big time.

    I have to look for a pusher or a road plow to make a pusher. I can't want for the snow to fly again to try out the loader.

    The swinger is a great machine it will run in mud and has great ground clearance. In the snow it will drive thru 2' with no problem. It also will not damage a lawn like the skidsteer.

    Awesome! I need one of the KAGE plow/pushers for my new bobcat. They are asking $5800 for a new 8'.

    Yes i have 5 lots with in a 1/2 mile of each other. This was bought to make my life easier. I was doing it with what i had with no problems. The weather pattern changes we have seen have made a loader very important. All our storms used to be 3" or 4" now we get fewer storms but we get dumped on.

    They do run and play hard. i have lot of property for them to just go. My boy's also understand that to play you must work and work they do. My oldest is planning on plowing with the loader this winter(that will be a fight) he plows with the skidsteer now he also runs a cat 330 excavator last fall he dug a foundation.

    I'm looking for a 10' loader box. A 12' would be the max. I want to use it during the day and i plow a lumber yard so space is tight sometimes.
