    Hey guys,
    Can someone with experience , size a machine for a 12 foot sectional and a 14 foot sectional. I'm used to using skidsteers but want to upgrade to at least one 12 or 14 ft'r. and need to price out the machine rental. TIA,
    Steve

    I forget the exact sizes but the 12 is over 13 and the 14 is 15 plus if I remember right.. In the past we ran the cat 908's. Cat 252b3's push the 10's. Sorry its been awhile.

    I had my 14HD on a 26000 lbs 130 horse machine and it pushed it fine
