    Anyone have experience with Bobcat 5600 Series Toolcarriers for snow plowing? Looking at buying a 2006 with 600 hours for work with a 8' straight blade and a snow bucket. Anybody have one of these?

    I have a 5600 that I use for snow removal in the winter, I love it for snow removal I would recommend it too anyone. Just make sure you get the history on the machine you are looking at, these machines have their share of issues with wheel motors and speed sensors,so do your home work at the dealer to see what has been done to the machine even at 600 hours.
    any more questions just PM me.
