    Hey guys, let's see some skid steers! I always want to see other setups from my own. Thinking about getting a light material bucket for this machine to stack with/clean up. Any opinions on snow buckets?

    um, what's with the waste mangement dumpsters? That's a nice plow set-up. Does it really need chains?

    Waste Management shares the same 30 truck heated garage that I keep the skiddi in. I plow for them and 3 adjacent companies, so I keep this on site. And yes, chains are absolutely necessary for this rig. 80 hp spins those tires quick with that big pusher on the front, especially on icy stuff.

    Thats a real nice skid. I love the new design of the cabs on the New Hollands. Very spacious, which is a big issue for a taller guy like myself. The JD's that I tried out were tiny inside

    Whats the deal with the plate on the back? I always see this and it makes sense to me to have one, but what is it required for? Thanks,

    i used to run the same setup your running now, when i finished up i grabbed the light material bucket to stack and clean up. worked great for me, plus the smaller bucket will cost you less of course.

    Are you talking the orange triangle?

    Its a Slow Moving Vehicle sigh. If you machine goes real slow, and you are on plubic roads, its required.

    up here, equipment has to be registed, GT (general tractor) goes on any equipment that will be operated on a roadway. that's how our hoe is registed.. only about $40 a year

    It is a license plate in the rear window. $28 this year, goes down as machine depreciates. I have run my other equipment over road for years without them, but for a few bucks it gives me piece of mind, as I have one of my employees in running the machine. Could save some $ in a claim.

    Yes, it is an 08' L185

    I have a full sized plate (just like a car or truck) on my skid steer. Down here we pay our property taxes at the DMV (on our equipment) and you must display the plate (if you intend to drive on or across public roads) or a sticker (if you are going to transport it). Ag vehicles are exempt. If you do not display either your machine is subject to impound if it is on the public roads. The plate for my A300 is about $700 anually. When you purchase the machine you do not know the exact amount you will pay. You submit an application to the Dept. of Revenue and they will let you when they get around to it.

    Nice New Holland Oakhills! Those Kage plows are sweet. Check out Snow Wolf's version of the same idea, I think it's cheaper. I haven't been able to find a website for them, but they sell them through my local New Holland dealer, and some sites online. If you search Plowsite, you will find some stuff on it too.

    A skidsteer is a great investment! They are so versatile, manuverable, and powerful. Id say my skidsteer and v plow are the best investments ive made for my snow plowing and removal operations.

    Are your windows tinted? And is your blade homemade for the bobcat?
