    Grabbed this clip last storm of my new Kubota M7040 pushing a 10 foot pusher full of heavy, wet snow. Stacking was pretty difficult with the weight of the snow.. I am putting together a lot of clips for this years plow video.

    Its on order! :nod: I definitely need it. The powdery stuff it handles fine, but this was a bit of a challenge with having to constantly feather the loader to push it. But she prevailed in the end.

    What are you saying loaded tires? That tractor is sweet, is the pusher the quick coupler like a skid steer?

    Very Cool!!!!! Love seeing machinery workin. Seems to handle that 10fter pretty easy. Why not throw a back blade on instead of a ballast box? It could act as ballast when not in use it, and also come in handy for pulling out loading docks and what not.

    i used to work at a kubota dealer. we would use a citris type fluid. about 11 pounds per gallon. just about every tractor we sold went out with loaded tires. dont use calcium it rust away the rim

    The tires are filled with some sort of product made for filling tires. I had it done before delivery. I plan on the purchase of a Ebling back blade for it this summer or so, already talked to JD dave about it. But it just isn't in the budget this season since I've had to make so many other purchases. And the $6,000 a month in salt doesn't help :dizzy:

    totally understand.....it seems from reading some of your other posts, lots of purchases have been made in a short time for you as it is. Sounds like things are going good for you....good luck, and congrats.

    Thanks, ya it really doesn't have to much problem with the 10 footer. Ballast on the back would be nice when it gets real heavy snow, and I already have a box on order for it.
