    I saw some guy pulling into my area with a big new holland and a 92" PXPL anyone know/of him? I think he's new to our area.

    Ya I guess so.... I was really surprised to see one around here. Problem is its atleast a 100k investment. for that much you cuold get a small wheel loader and a snowwing( I think) like triple L has. or the same 100 horse tractor and snow wing and do commercial. Theirs more profit in large commercial than 100 driveways isnt there?

    There's 6 and it ain't enough. The pxpl is a loaner until my Inv-92 is built they were out of stock. I can't wait as the pxpl isnot the tool for my job.

    Really? I thought it did an awesome job!

    Does that tractor cruise the whole city or what lol

    Do you guys do the city sidewalk and front steps too with a different machine after?

    No he has a route up the west side.

    I only do sidewalks on a handful of my customers so we do em with a shovel. 90 percent are driveway only.

    It does an ok job but it doesn't actually blow while driving forward unless there is alot of snow. It's also really heavy. It's a good unit don't get me wrong just not what I'm after. If I had a bunch of longer lane ways or as one in a fleet so I also have blowback and truck loading capabilities on commercials it would be good but I want to blow 2cms while driving forward. As I'm sure you saw he was dragging it to the street and shuttling back to blow. Which isn't really what I want to be doin.

    Yes I agree, if you don't mind me asking what's a tractor that size worth to rent for the winter? Thought total was all deere? You supply the snowblower I assume and just give the tractor back in the spring?

    That is correct. It's 10k plus HST.
    they have both. Next year it's deere or new Holland I want. The travel speed on that tractor is 12km slower than the equivalent deere or new Holland and I can definitely feel it doing the route.

    It tops out at 38. Any 6430/7430 I've run does 45-50. The T6175 my friend has from Coleman this winter does 50 as well. Just a couple changes to keep in mind for next year lol.
