    They are amazing for parking lots. We have one with two different V-blades, one for sidewalks, buckets, and a snowblower.

    The turning radius is great, and the cab is wonderful for visibility and comfort.

    The machine is great for pushing, and the boom allows you to push it higher and much farther than a skidsteer or pickup.

    If you are driving around to different sites in it, it's quicker than a skidsteer too.

    They work awsome. Will plow circles around a truck in a smaller lot or confined spaces.

    We just got one at work for this winter..... looks really cool. The only downside is their not street legal, and I don't think they will classify as a tractor.

    please any input on the hinker plow? hows it holding up, would you buy it again? I am thinking of buying one for a truck for driveways to save some time over just a stander plow. Any input?

    that sucks. i see a lot of folks in ny with SMV plackards on Yamaha Rhino's and similar things and dont see why a Tool cat wouldnt qualify to be transported from job to job?

    They're not? Laws must be different in MN?

    Mine is street legal, we drove it all over the place last winter. I did get the road lighting\equipment (mirrors, turn signals, brake lights) package which you should be able to add, but other than that why wouldn't it be?

    Hinker plow (fox) was the only way to go for us on this machine. The versitility of the toolcat with the ability to get up close to driveways and loading docks and back drag with the plow is a winning combo. We are servicing several HOA'S with up to 60 small driveways in each property as well as our local Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, Home Depot, and other big box stores, and have had zero problems with the plow. Hope this helps.:salute:
