    We are looking at selling our Bobcat T190 and getting a Toolcat. I am wondering how big of a pusher can you run on them? I know there are different variables on how big w/ different type of snow, but just on average how big could you run?

    I have seen an 8' pusher run on a toolcat. I dont know if you could go any larger.

    The local Chevy dealer has a tool cat and they have replaces the "quicktach" twice, and on the third one. I have the 2 distroyed ones. I can post pictures if you want From what I am guessing the employees driving the unit was hitting the curbs in the parking lot with the unit. the Quicktach is NOT very stout... Be careful its an expensive part!!!

    On my 5610 I have a 6' to 10' extendable pull plow on the three point and a 6 ft bobcat snowblower in front. I can't wait to try it!!!

    I run a 10' on my 5600, depending on the type of snow and the length of the push you have. i also have a salt spreader in the bed so i have a lil more weight on the back.

    What kind of a pull plow do you have? Let's see some pics. How do you like the 5610?

    Interesting. In what way do you think it will be better than a CTL? I always questioned the usefulness of a tool cat.
