    A JD 544 will push a 14' SnoPusher without a problem, and you could probably get by with a 16' for the short pushes that you are looking at.

    A JD 644 would be ideal with a 16' pusher, an 18' max... (again, only because you are loking at short pushes...)

    Good Luck!

    I have a 12' pusher for my John Deere 344H loader and the loader has no problems, I could go up to at least a 14' with ease and maybe even a 16'.

    How many inches down vs. how long the push.

    Instant igloo theory.
