    We have been using the new plow at a large trucking yard.
    The new cat is 105 hp I believe and the plow is a LD 14 witch is more like 15.5' wide.

    I can see the fuel gauge now. Just starting it and its down a 1/4 tank. My 262C will gobble up a good amount of fuel wide open all day moving dirt or playing in the snow.

    That must be a tier 4 engine. I was reading they want to start using DPFs and Catalysts on them machines now.

    Yup it's got both. So far fuel has been great but the jury's out on long term engine maintenance.

    Very slick looking, it all looks like $ makers. Did you get to use it last week?

    Yup we have plowed with it 4 times now. The size of the plow is pushing the limits of the machine but it worked great.

    We are trying to replace our wheel loaders with theses very large skid steers. We will see how it goes this year. This combo was half the price of a loader and plow and in our area we do not often get more then 2-3" of snow in a day so this might do the trick.

    Artic has a branding agreement with CAT. It's an Artic pusher.

    Yes that is an arctic pusher painted in cat colors. It's exactly the same as our other arctic pushers. It dose look great with the new skid in those colors.
