    We like it alot. Its a 2010 model we bought new. last winter it ran a sweeper 75% of its time doing sidewalks at a large mall and the rest plowing ramps with a bucket. This year it does a variety of things. In the summer we run rubber over tire tracks and use in landscape projects and running around yards.
    It has standard foot controls.
    I wish it could lift just a bit more sometimes. We did a stone wall this spring with 4000lb pallets of stone, it kind of could lift them off a bobcat trailer but not really.
    It has 560 hrs and no issues at all starts easy in the cold, comfortable, and very productive for the price.

    Is that blower a high flow or low flow? I'd like to invest in one someday, but my machine is low flow.

    The blower is low flow. Its ok It works for what we need but could use 10ft further throw.

    Fun not exactly, we have 100-120 hrs since thursday last week each. But money is good.

    We purchased the truck set up like that so I don't have forsure numbers. On just the hook. alot would depend on the truck its going on and if it has a PTO and hydraulics already.
