    Looking to purchase a new/newer loader for my company. I currently have a Bobcat 773 shoving a 8' pusher. Works great. We are looking to move forward with gaining plow contracts, as well as larger jobs in the summer. Can anyone give me some input as to if a machine like a T300 or a SVL90-2 will shove in slick conditions? Thanks

    Terex/Cat style track machines out perform any other track machine I have been around.Bobcat and similar style track machines will perform well in snow and ice as long as you get the wright style track lugs.

    Which style track is better? I know the factory track cleats are more of a "all purpose" pattern...

    The only track machines OEM that will perform in the snow are Cat/Terex all others require an alternate track pattern
