    just wondering what you guys think of a blade setup on skidsteer. i used a ten foot pusher on my deere 332 skid last winter liked it, but i have a long road to plow between the two parking lots i do and it didn't work so out so well. so i was looking at a ten foot plow setup with wings on it and a rubber edge. with the wings it would be close to 12 wide and the plow is real heavy duty. i sold my pusher so i have to buy this blade set up or spend $2500 more on a 10ft. kage setup. any ideas on what direction to go. never used a blade on a skid before thanks

    I have a 9 foot boss and love it but t also has the Kage attachment to turn it a box and love that also
    Kage system is treat but if one break your whole machine is down my other skid inhale a plow and pusher on site

    I love the blade on my skid. I use it more for the detail work such as back dragging and cutting in curbs rather than for mass snow moving.

    thanks i was wondering if a blade can handle as much snow as a pusher? my pusher could really move alot of snow last year and i want to make sure a blade can do the same

    Plow would be nice at times

    I'm using an 8' box and welded a 7" blade on the top of it. When tilted forward the blade works great to backdrag with or scrape hard pack. There are times that a blade would work better for some applications.

    Take a look at my 6/10' winter blaster. That would be perfect on your 332 Deere
