    That should be a weapon. Looks decent, ok rubber. Friend of mine bought an Early 70's Deere 624 last winter for about 12K. Ended up putting over 7K in the motor. He'll be a while getting that money back unfortunately.

    It will handle a 14, as long as its a steel edge unit. The rubber causes to much drag and will rob the machines power.

    We run 12ft boxes on my little L20B volvos, no problems at all.

    Like stated above it will handle a 14' pusher, but in heavier deeper snows, you are going to have to take smaller cuts, or you may wish you had a 12' pusher on it. If it were me, i'd probably stick a 12' pusher on that machine. Looks like a nice little loader for you.

    Talk to you local Cat dealer they can get a pusher to go on the quick coupler. This style pusher will out push a pusher on a bucket.

    Are you looking for a steel edged pusher or rubber? I have a 12' RCS snowpusher that is in really good shape that I was going to sell because I will be upgrading to a 16 or 20 foot pusher this fall probably.

    Hey Collin,
    I left you a voicemail. Let me know what you are thinking. I can't seem to find the two pictures I had of the pusher. I bought it from the member CGSI who is on this website. I can snap a few pictures if you really want to see it first. Like I said, the pusher is in great shape.
