    Just watched your video. That S185 does a pretty good job with the 10ft'er. I thought it might be to big. Guess not

    Trembley, your truck looks really good too. You have good taste. Shortbox duallies all the way! My fender light was corroded and shorting the fuse for all of my tailights. I disconnected the harness while I wait for a new one. Sharp eye though! I don't leave the truck running all the time. Only was running there because I was only going to be 30 mins and wanted it to still be warm. Under normal cricumstances it is plowing at the same time as the bobcat but the plow was broken so I lugged the bobcat from site to site. Two speed will be on my next one for sure, but meantime this does just fine. I plow a grocery store/stripmall complex for ppm with this and it gets the job done in less than 3 hours each time.

    Snocrete, thanks bud. I knew when I posted that you'd like that. Rumour has it you like the bobcats yourself. I may end up switching to a taller tire with a truck tread, as you mentioned, for next year. This machine wasn't supposed to be on snow this year. I got the contract last minute. I had an 8 ft box as a loaner while I was waiting for this 10 so when I got the extra contract I just told them to sell the 8 ft to my account as well.

    I have smaller orfices in the hydraulic system to slow in the hydraulic system to slow it down. It is pretty heavy so when it moves fast it really throws the truck around. I like smoother better.

    It has some problems that are typical to snoway Revs, but they keep replacing it and it keeps moving large quantities of snow as you can see in the vid, so I'm happy with it. In a couple years when the kinks are all worked out I'll likely buy some more.

    Thanks Dave and Bertog.

    No Johnny, just that night there was a bunch of packed stuff and the blower does a nice scrape. Last years deal involved blowing all the sidewalks and the curblines all night, no pusher. It is rare to have enough large sidewalk in a row to make that worthwhile but where we did it looked great.

    What's the horizontal ram for on the back of the snowblower unit?

    Nice equipment

    The ram is actually on the loader. It is connected to the bobtach levers to alow them to open and close from inside the cab so you can switch attachments without getting out.

    Here are some pics of the M series T 650 digging/loading sand as well as unloading stone from a flatbed. Incredibly stable/powerful/comfortable. Bobcat really hit the nail on the head with this machine series. I want to upgrade my excavator and wheeled skidsteer to this type as well when its time. The final pic is the end result of the new retaining wall on a sand dune in Wasaga Beach.
