    The snow wolf plows are great we have 7 of them. They have held up very well.

    Flames--- Yes

    Track loader - Pusher no I havn't used one. It works great until it ice forms then it kinda skates a little, but over all it gets the job done. I couldn't see having it sit and not working.

    Burris equipment and Lewis Equipment have them. They add alot of production to the plow.

    The New Holland 185 really pushes alot of snow. We have 2 180 that are not in the pics but the New Holland work real good. The bobcat is a subs and pushes good with the Bonnel Plow. But I the new holland are the guys favorites.
