    Hello

    I have a 257 b2 cat. Purchasing a push box and wanted to know if anyone has a 10' pusher on theirs. I am torn between purchasing an 8' or a 10'. The sites we are plowing size does not matter just wondering if the machine can handle a 10' pusher. I don't want to regret it. Thank you.

    I would stick with the 8 foot, is your machine around sixty h.p if so when you get a load in a ten foot box you machine will be sucking a little on long pushes.

    The machine is 71 hp. I was leaning towards the 8' but I was just worried I was under utilizing the machine.
