  2. Looks like that set up could work nicely! What type of places will you plow with that? Do the toolcats have float controls for the loader?

    What does that thing weigh?...it looks like to much for the little cat. At the very least you need to lose the turf tires or use chains and/or lug tires. Ballast will be a must. Nothing bigger than an 8 foot pusher is recommended for the TC, I have every available snow attachment for my 05 and JMO but I think you are pushing it just a bit to much...let me know how it works.

    Looks good PJ but don't put an animal on that thing or your next thread will be how to straighten a boom on a TC. LOL Paint it green and it will push it for sure. LOL

    I agree with snowcan, you are going to have to add some weight to that thing.

    the pic was realy more of a joke i don't think the thing will even pick it up, the blade don't look that big in the pic but it came off of a military 6X6 i was going to put it on a FWA tractor but i thought i would take a quick pic first

    here is what the blade realy goes on

  11. yikes! that must have been a hard fall! I'm surprised it tipped over even though you had the wheels turned in that way - usually they're a lot tipsier when you're turned the other way, eh

    You think it would have hurt your head more then your back. My back is my weakest link too. Good luck with the recovery.
