    Will is the biggest snow pusher that a New Holland Ls180 2speed will push?
    I had a guy tell me that he had a 12' on it.
    I was thinking a 10 would be the biggest? I don't know though.

    If it won't do a 12'; does anyone know what size skid steer will push a 12'.
    i know a backhoe or loader would be ideal, but i don't have access to one.
    let me know.

    Thanks

    is there a specific reason that you need a 12? how long is your push going to be? the longer the push=smaller box

    I have a LS180 and we run a 10ft on it. If its heavy wet snow, the skid steer will not push it. The box has to be under half full in order to move it over 200ft. I would go with the 8ft, that way you can use it no matter the snow type. I would put a Blizzard 8611 on it if I was you. Then you have the a bigger blade and you can make it smaller if you need too.

    We have a LS180 as well and run a 10 footer. It does good, but i wouldnt want any larger. If you have a long way to move it, you will loose traction. I would say 8 or 10 max.
