    Probably the last time for the next 4 months that everything will be at the shop.
    The most I can squeeze inside the shop is : 3 jeeps, 4 F350's ,2 SS, 3 Toolcats.
    Outfitted 2 more toolcats for this season with back blades and blowers.
    Should have lettering soon, hopefully before it snows.

    I have 3 toolcats I think they are the best thing ever. I use mine for brooming side walks. never have plowed with one . How do they push ? how hast are they next to your skiddy?

    Freaky fast if you're used to a 2 spd skiddy.
    I figure Toolcat is 50% faster.
    Runs at 18-19 mph. Travels site to site really quick.
    I have blowers on the front so not much pushing, great for what they do in small ,tight areas.

    How do you like the one with the 3 point hitch? Is it longer than the other one?

    Nice looking setup!! I also have a few toolcats and at first I kind of thought they were a joke but after using them a few years (with the right operator) they are very handy, we run 10-11 ft plows on them weight in the bed is a must, we are trying truck snow tires on one this year. I will try to get some pics later. A couple questions if you dont mind what do you use your for primarily? What speed can you maintain when using blower in snow say 6-8inches deep? How wide are the blowers on the toolcats? Are the back blades utilized to justify the cost? Thanks

    Those are cool pics. You need a bigger shop! I thought about buying a Toolcat, but the 2 times I was at the dealer, they had 1 or 2 in the shop getting repaired. How often do they break? Seems like they have issues with reliability. I really like how yours are setup, there is no doubt they are great for many applications.

    The one with the 3 pt is the shortest by about a foot.
    Six ft blowers on the front, 7 ft blades on the back.
    For us the back blades are a must.
    We service small tight space challenged sites with the toolcats.
    Yes a shop big enough to put everything inside would be sweet.
    Knock on wood I've had no issues re toolcat breaking.
    Plows on jeeps are the little homesteaders, one fisher, one western and a myers.

    The fleet is growing:nod: I guess your not subing work out, you must be able to handle it now.

    Does any one have a toolcat with a liquid setup on it. I'm wondering how well it would work.
