    I was wanting to know the basic way to operate the skid steer. Ive only operated once with foot pedals and now im wanting to know how to operate a skid steer like a CASE 95xt or the new 400 series. I want to know how to operate it. also the best way how to operate it with the push box on the front for snow....sorry this may make me sound stupid but im new.

    It comes with practice, you will figure it out. One thing about working in snow is the machine has a less traction, so it moves a little bit different in some situations. To me you have a bit of slide so you can whip around and turn alot faster. I use hand controlls but have started using foot controlls in the open just for practice.
