    The biggest plow would be one it could lift. You should visit or consult with the dealers in your area on what they recommend for the snow conditions in your area. What model Bobcat?

    I have run a 9' plow on my 753 (I usually run a 7.5') when I lost a tire on my JD250. It had no problem since it had snowwolf tires on it. That size machine doesn't lack power just traction.

    why would it matter how much plow it can lift?

    it will be able to lift alot more than it can push

    i would say 7' or so would work good:)

    I am unfamiliar w/ the stats. on your loader. Whats really important (to me) is how heavy is your machine?
    I have a Mustang 2040, it weighs in at about 4800-5000 lbs. and I run a 7 1/2 ft Western blade w/ pro wings so it comes out at about 9' 2". I do fine w/ most snow except the really wet sloppy 1's. I don't come up short on power-I simply lose traction.

    Check into this blade. Everyone has an opinion on it. Just like any other piece of equipment, but you be the judge. If you have the extra finances anyway. Degleman manufactures it. Not sure that's spelled right.
