    They work great. We have a Snow wolf fast tach system on one machine and it is awesome. They have great visibility and travel quicker than our skid steers. Only a couple minor issues here and there.



    Reaper - Sorry it took so long to post pics of his fenders all done. If he sees this pic he might get pissed because he didnt get to give a good cleaning. O well.


    Smokejmpr - The snow ex in the picture is about 5-6 years old. Never had any issues, we have even loaded straight bulk salt through it. The guy who owns the truck dumps 6 or so pallets of salt through it every event.


    Thanks for the comments everyone. Will try and post more if we ever get any more snow.

    Just curious, why in the hell would anyone put 6 pallets of salt through that little spreader every event??

    Back to the important stuff, those loaders are cool! I wish I had one for snow removal. The rest of the year it would sit though.

    Why 6 pallets of salt? Why not? We plow cul de sacs and salt them when we are all done. He will be investing in a bulk spreader for next year, but hes just using what he has and what works. Its really not all that bad, as long as you have someone riding with you loading the bags. O and we only use our machines in the winter. we let them sit the rest of the year....

    Stroker79 - Good eye. You are correct. Although we do not plow the village pizza.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Nice. That would be a nice push all back there. I know snow systems has some stuff in there too. I seen their flags when I went and ate at big sammys a few weeks ago.

    Big sammys is one of ours. The flags you see is Great lakes snow systems. We have factories, as well as half of the retail in front. Our loaders plow that road infront of sammys to the road we were working at in the video.

    what do the deere 244s compare to as a skiddy as far as pushing and snow removal, also what is transport speed?

    The 244js have more power than our Jd 332 skid steer. We only have a 10ft pusher/plow on it but it is capable of pushing a 12Fter. When plowing, I push a full box 200ft or so and never have any pushing issues. They travel at 18mph. The cat model mini end loader will travel 22mph.
