    Looking for solid info on productivity rates for equipment with pushers from those who have used this equipment

    Lets assume wide open parking lots 5 acre minimum

    I think the norm for a V plow or XLS-Wideout is 1 - 1.5 acres per hour

    Wheel Loader with 14' pusher 3.5 Acres/HR ?
    4x4 backhoe with 12' pusher 2.5 Acres/HR - is what we average on our lot

    Also on a Case 621B would you go 14' or 16'?

    Throw in your thoughts and experience

    I have a 2.25 yard loader running a 12' boss. Last year we ran on average 2.3. acres per hour on my difficult lot a lumber yard. It has long pushes and all the snow gets pushed out side the yard thru two gates. The more straight forward lots 3 was easy on a average 4" snowfall. I have found that my old rubber edge pusher we were doing less per hour do to it not cleaning as well as the steel edge not to mention using more fuel per hour.
