    Figured I would share some video of doing some snow removal from the top of a parking garage. 4 skids total, Cat 262, Cat 226, Deere 325 and Gehl 5640 (mine)

    Mine is pretty fast and does have a turbo 82 hp. The Deere 325 blew up the motor last winter and they replaced it and said they feel it is slower now and they don't know why. But yes I run circles around all of them, the 226 is slow and the 262 is even slower they both are single speed.

    The skids are used because thats what fits. Most of these garages have clearence height of 7'1 some even lower, so skid is what will fit and be more productive.

    The kage system would be nice but would serve no use in this application. This is snow removal not plowing. This removal is done the night after the storm. During the storm a pick-up truck plows the snow on the decks to the corners. There is one dump site on the upper deck all the snow from the corners must get to that corner, that is where the skids come in to transport the snow from the various corners to the dump spot. Pushing the snow wouldn't help only make a mess.

    The Gehl 5640 and 6640 with the 2 speed

    option are the fastest ground speed machines made.

    Ohh yea 12.3mph! was one of the reasons I bought the Gehl, gets crapped on by other who blindly throw money at the big names but at the end of the day I am more productive and have made more profit then them. Looking at adding a V270 to the mix in the spring, it is new vertical lift skid from Gehl, pretty much the same as the 5640 but more compact and has vertical lift.

    Great video! Post More when you get a chance. Would love to see the crews on the ground loading those tri axles. Good luck this season. Let It Snow.

    My PT80 will go 15mph.

    Nice video. We have to dump our snow over the edge while we plow ours.

    I will have more next time, I purchased some mounts to get better views of dumping over the edge and for below, was windy the other night and didn't want to loose the camera and all we had was duct tape.

    Can't dump off while plowing for the fact of the dump sites are all street side. Some other garages around town have bins that stack up before removal, all these garage are dump and need to be loaded and hauled right away because they are imposing on other areas.

    Thanks for all the compliments this is what I like doing the best, plowing is fun but this is more relaxed and fun as you can see the deere popping wheelies. We enjoy doing it and work very well together which makes it great.
