    Hi everyone just joined the site. This is my first post. I have been in the snow business for 3 years now and i am growing. I got some more jobs for this winter and just hired someone with a skid loader to help me. I have a bobcat S750 with a 8 ft bucket and a 10 ft snow pusher. I was looking to get something for my new hired hand. What would you get for a big gas station parking lots a 10 ft snow pusher or a 8 or 10 ft V plow? Thanks

    How big are you talking about? If its many gas station sites it would be easier to do them with a pickup. Do you plan on trailering the Bobcat from site to site?

    gas station size

    We are going to trailer the bobcat. I'm fine with that. The gas station is more like a truck shop. It has big big open spaces more like a wal-mart parking lot just with a few pumps. so know what would you use

    Definitely a snow pusher especially with the fill caps and concrete to asphalt transitions at monist gas stations and truck stops those caps will bend a plow and the concrete is usually higher. I would suggest an arctic sectional snow pusher so that one section will hit and trip over the cap.

    Rubber edge pusher will glide right over all the caps at the gas station.. gas stations suck lol.

    If I was doing with a Skid Myself be a power angle pusher with a trip edge Them Rubber edge pushers doesn't scape snow well and being truck stop that snow will be pack down + it will save on the salt usage
