    I Need Some Help With A 600 Car Office Space Parking Lot
    It Is About 8 1/2 Acres One Dock With A 3 Block Street And A Block Long Side Walk
    I Have A Chevy 2500 With A 8' Sno Way Blade And Was Thinking On Getting A F450 With A Western Wide-out And A V Spreader And A Bobcat S220 To Help Out And How Much Salt Would It Take Per Acre? Or Tell Me What I Should Get
    It Is In Chicago Il
    Thank's For Any suggestions

    IMHO it would depend on the shape of the lot. If it is a square that could be a long push with a pickup. If it is a rectangle and can be pushed to the sides (windrowed) maybe it would work. A 3-4" snow would be one thing what about a 12-15"? Is the equipment you mentioned dedicated to just this site? I would think in a big storm it would be tough keeping up without having a loader or something to help make big pushes. Just my thoughts.:)

    Skip the bobcat and get a 4x4 backhoe w/ a pusher on the front.
