    We have a guy that wants to sub to me this year. He has two 45hp tractors. I want to know if you can push a 8 foot pusher or does he need a 6 footer. We only use backhoes and frontend loaders so i have no clue.thanks for any help

    I'm not sure. but I'd assume go with the 6'-er and invest in good tires and ballast! (overpower is always better than underpower!!!!!!)

    I have tractors of that size, I have a 6 ft pusher on one a 8 ft straight blade on the other. I think an 8 ft pusher might be a bit too much. We just had 1 ft of wet snow and the tractor did fine but I would not want to put a bigger pusher on it for that heavy wet snow.

    I have a 8ft pusher we use with a TC40. Does just fine. We have a snow bucket also for
    when we have to pile the snow high.
