    Hey guys,

    Im so happy to be adding a Loader to the Fleet, all we need now is a push box :D

    This is a deal that could not be passed up, a few years ago my grandfarther sold out his dirt work biz to some guys, and doing so he had to agree not to do any dirt work for XXX years.

    Well shortly after that, he loan one of his old employee's the money to start up, and buy some equipment.


    Well Monday we repo all the equipment the guy own, he hasn't made a payment in over a year and still owes granddad around $125,000 besides some big trucks and a dozer and a Cat hoe, there was this 555E. Well longstory short Dad and them are keeping the equipment around awile and I was told I can use this for snow if I got the accounts :yow!:

    A 12 ft pusher works well in all storms but you could push it and go 14 ft but I would get a 12 ft. JMO:D

    I think the hoes work very well with the 12 foot pushers. We chained our 12 on it the last 3 storms last season in about 8 inches of wet heavy snow and it worked very well, but I think a 14 would have made her struggle a bit! Go with the 12!

    i was contemplating a 14 for a 410 we rented last year and decided on the 12 ...that was a good choice....14 would have been had to handle....12 foot you can still drive down the road.....which i needed to do
