    If your looking for some equipment that will do the job in a much less expensive way heres an idea. I plow the local mall in Green Bay. I bought a Polaris 500 sixwheeler with a plow. Believe me when you lock in all six wheels you can push alot of snow . It works great for sidewalks. Plus you can run electric to the back dump box and hook up a spreader if you choose. Cost about 7,000. Good luck

    The machine you saw was most likely an MT or a trackless MT do a google search and there should be a web site for them. They are very expensive though. The holder is a much better option
     

  7. If the thing that you saw was on tracks it is probably a good possibility it was a Bombardier sidewalk plow
