    Why buy one if your not going to beat the SH!T out of it .

    Because life is short, just enjoy it. The equipment can handle the MINOR abuse it has just received.

    Neat! I gotta get me one of those Tool cats for next year! I wonder how well they work traction wise with the orange box pusher Bobcat offers for it?

    Earl was agreeing with you. Is that the type of site your going to use that on or was this just a maiden voyage? I will be interested in how the Toolcat does take the abuse over time, I really hope they stand up for you.

    The ToolCat has an 165 driveway route, those videos were taken when we were done plowing.

    Thanks everyone. More to follow after we get todays snow and some sleep.

    The guy we bought it from had a 10 foot Protech pusher on it last year, she plowed just fine.
    Even with the down pressure of the SwingWing, she has plenty of traction.

    How fast will the toolcat travel down the road? Does it slow down when going up hills?

    Current mods to the pumps, she will get 20 mph, adding the new wheels and tires will get her 25 mph. I have had a pump mod and new drive motors done in the last week, and she does not hinder up any inclines to terribly bad. She slows slightly, but that is about it.

    They are pricey machines. I bet they are handy though.

    I may sound a little aggressive, but i have had one of these little peice of sh!t's for a while and the Bobcat shop has had it in their possesion more than i have. and i have my doubt's about it hadeling a 10' pusher...but i cant argue that one way or another, but i will say that the drive motor's will stall long before the motor "bog's" even with the axle matching on or off it don't matter, and it's normal :nod:

    Changing the tires is so that I can get more ground speed, not for traction (maybe a little). If the things would do 40 mph I would have 10 or more of them. I just wish they had more ground speed.wesport
