    I recently purchased an old Waldon 4000 articulated wheel loader with the gas Continental engine. I think it's about 50hp or so. It weighs about 7,000 lbs. It's from the early 1980s but the newer ones look almost identical. It has an open cab.

    I was wondering if any of you are familiar with these and if so, what are your opinions? What uses would it be especially good for with snow removal? What size pusher would you think it could handle?

    I think your going to freeze your @ss off on that thing. I'm guessing it's not very fast either and not overly heavy. Honestly, I don't see it working to great, at least not good enough to put up with the open operators station.
