    hello, i have a case 680 backhoe and i'm wandering how well it would do with a push box. I'm also wandering if a ten footer might be better for this machine as opposed to a 12 footer. The machine is an 86 so i'm kinda skeptical but again i'm fairly confident it would be more efficent than renting one and spending the extra thousands a month. Any imput on this issue would be great!!

    Thanks in advance

    Should have no problem. Is it 4x4? Biggest problem is remembering the boom on the back of it when backing up.

    It's a 4x2, do you think a 12 foot would be too big/heavy when it snows in excess of 4 or 6 inches??
