    Looking to buy a tractor or loader in the 100hp range for snow work and around my shop.

    We had a large storm last year of 7ft in a couple days time, I'm sure some of you heard about it. Without a tractor or loader you were getting screwed. I won't be going into this winter without my own machine.

    I am between a tractor that I can put a big blower on back, or just getting a loader. I'm still doing my research however I found a 1997 kawasaki 60z with 5800 hours and looks pretty clean. Asking price 28k

    I looked up the specs but anyone here have anything to ad? It's not a huge loader, more midsize with a 2 yard bucket and rated 109 hp. I don't know much about loaders but I'm mechanically inclined and been plowing snow for 10 years. I just know it's time for me to get some iron. What do ya's think of this loader for a snow/storm machine?

    I have ran all kinds of loaders and Kawasaki was about the worst.. the few people I know who have owned them either sold them or have them parked in there junk rows.. I would run away..

    Wouldn't have to run too fast since it would probably breakdown while it chased you
