    There were a few years where the loaded models for the bobcats were referred to as 'GOLD PACKAGE" machines. Used to run an aniversary edition that had gold door and decal package as well. The rims came that way, not my doing.

    I've got a nice 20' gold chain I bought from princess auto that I was going to used to tie my Cat down. It would look pimpmin with your gold rims. Maybe get Mr Tee to drive that one.

    That looks like in the area of Dundas & Winston Churchill.

    We use a T190 to push snow with a 8' bucket. It does OK but the technique in driving it -v- a wheeled skid is different. You can't operate it like a wheeled machine, keeping the tracks flat on the ground is key. To much down pressure and you'll skid the tracks like crazy. Once you figure out how to drive it on snow you'll do just fine. We mostly use the 190 to move piles and stack.

    We just picked up a new S250 2 Speed with a 9' Snow Wolf, it's night and day and now I don't even like getting in the 190 LOL.

    This is true.



    We run an 8ft pusher on a T190, and it does fine. This year that machine will be equipped w/ polar treads...I have been told they make a HUGE difference.

    No, the S185 is not a high flow but even on standard flow it throws very far and isn't underpowered. The blower will take high flow when its on machines that have it.

    As for the continuous track vs tire debate, Tracks are fine if they can stay planted on the ground. The easiest way to do this is to have a pusher like the one from bobcat where there is a slip link between the mounting plate and the box, the machine and the box can move independently in the vertical direction for several inches. This eliminates the problem of pushing down on the pusher, which lifts the front of the tracks making the back corner the only point of contact. Secondly the T 650 has roller suspension This allows the track to maintain full contact when going over speed bumps ridges etc... This is similar to the way that the Cat/asv suspended rollers keep traction vs a solid undercarriage. It is also significantly heavier than a T 190 so I can't answer whether yours would push well or not. Only way to know is to try. I will say that I used to have a T 190 and they are a phenomenal machine for working with dirt.

    Long winded, but I hope this helps. And the compliments ppl have made are appreciated.

    PS, I'm still trying to contact MR. T to see if he needs winter work as an operator.
