    You really think that toolcat will have enough power?

    By power what do you mean? I believe that it will perform just fine. The ratings on the machine do not suggest that it would not be able to handle such pulling or pushing power.

    that looks very nice, did you buy the blade, or do you make your own? still use a secondary motor for the plow or is there someway to run it off a pto?

    I built the entire project myself (extra hands were involved for the heavy lifting). The plows run off the ToolCats hydraulics, no pony motor or electric over hydraulic on this one.

    Thanks,

    By power-I meant enough HP to push/pull a significant accumulation. Looks awesome BTW. Time to put that plow of yours into full production Jon.

    Enjoy.

    That thing looks awsome !!! If I had that my condo job would have been a breeze. Are all three edged rubber ? I have always wanted a rear plow but the need to spread salt has won that battle every year:cry: Agan that is a cool looking set up !!!

    have you used the toocat with the blower yet? just curious how fast you can run the blower? or do you plan to run with it up? and just move the piles you pull?

    This setup would work great in a condo situation. You can set up a salt spreader to be used in conjunction with a rear plow. All 3 edges are poly.

    Just got the blower on Friday, and we have yet to get snow to use it in. You can run the blower full throttle, slows travel a little bit, but I believe it will do fine.

    I hope to use it all soon. Stay tuned.

    I have seen the rear plows with a spreader ( you know the '' snowguy'' plow) but a 7' never really interested me. I have an 07 f-350 w/a 4'' lift can a swing wing work w/my truck? Are all of the plows custom made? how wide do they run? This has caught my attenton !!! I am probably set for this season as it is already strarted but any info would be greatly appreciated !!! Send me a PM or what ever, thanks !!! ,shaun
