    on a S300 bobcat ? I help a friend with some landscaping work and he is thinking of using his bobcat for plowing this winter ( he already have 4 trucks with plows )

    which is a better choice and setup for his machine ? and where to purchase in NJ ? or close by

    The types of accounts the machine is working on, would determine how to set it up first of all. Personally I prefer pushers, simpler in design (less to break) & will flat out move more snow from point A to point B than anything else. This is what works for me, and what I do with the SS's.

    agreed, pushes with a skidsteer are the best, and being that he already has plows, he should try a push

    He might want to buy both Kage sells a good one so does snow wolf It is a plow that with out getting in or out of the machine turns into a pusher. Plows have down pressure for back dragging and pusher are better for NOT windrowing it (piling it up behind cars) and piling it up. If he has the money go for both if not sounds like he needs one for piling it up..
