    Do you think a Toolcat could push an 8 foot box plow full of wet snow?

    Who?

    Actually I have an 810SS on mine, should've had the 8611.

    WMHLC runs a 10' pusher on his. But I wouldn't hesitate with a 12' with proper ballast and a good operator. I never ran out of traction or power with mine. Did run out of plow though, that's why the higher moldboard of the 8611 would have come in handy.

    No apologies, because you are correct, that's what I say and it could handle with no problem whatsoever.

    Well, he used to at least. We bought it from him earlier this month. We are outfitting it as we speak. I think they are underestimated on their capabilities. The dealer claims they are not "Rated" for many things, such as a 96" blower, but they can give no logical explanation of why. We'll see what it can handle.

    I love the maneuverability, and how compact they are in tight spaces. I am excited to get here off and running. Stay tuned.
