    How does the 247 do with that pusher? How big is it?

    Do you do the ramp?

    You have some real nice equipment there. My little nephew who is 6 loves plows and front end loaders. He is going to run the volvo front end loader when he is old enough and work for me. why not get a push box for the front loader or do you just use it when someone calls for its service?

    the 928GZ has a rental sticker on it so he probably didn't have a pusher available

    nice setup

    i am looking to buy a new loader in the spring but it'll probably be a 924g

    247b vs. 257b

    I'm looking to buy a piece of equipment soon. The local Cat dealer has a 247b and no 257b. The price is good. Do you have any comments on which unit is better for all around work. I will not be loading dump tucks that often.

    The push box is an 8' Erskine and I love the thing. The 247 handles it just fine, I have no complaints at all. The Chevy is a 3500 and is only used to haul the 247. You can't see it in the picture but there is an 18', 14000 pound, Load Trail Equipment trailer behind the Dually. If I where you Lazy Lightning I would go with the 247b. 257 is the same engine but is about 900-1000 pounds heavier. I had a 257 rented last year and I didn't think it could get out of its own way. I am very happy with my 247 and glad that is what I settled for. I work with two other contractors moving snow in a country mall in this same resort, both are running 8' Erskine push boxes, one on a ASV SR-80, and one on a 297c custom painted all black, it is sweat looking machine and handles the box better then my 247 does do to the machine being heavier. I will try to get a picture of it next time I see him.

    I don't usually do the ramp, runway, taxi way, or tarmac but this storm hammered them. There plow broke in the middle and they had 3-5' covering the entire airport do to drifting. I spent about 30 hours helping them get it back up and operating. I usually only do the hanger area.
