    I just purchased a Bobcat V723 and will be buying a Arctic plow for it but I'm wondering what size it will handle. The specs are 16,000lbs, 100hp, 7000lb lift. I would like to get a 14' HD model but the dealer said theres no way it will push that, he does have a 12' HD model what do you guys think would be the right size. I will be buying one by Friday

    i would go with the ld model. it weighs alot less than the hd. You would probably get away with the 14' ld on that machine. I have a 14' ld on a 344 j 100 hp loader. it does a great job of rolling the snow and not coming over the back.

    Well I got a price of $4800.00 from my local dealer, but he didn't have that size but he found one 4hrs away so it was $5600.00 delivered.

    Is that a 14' LD on that 906? or 908? , and how does it handle it? This is my 906 with a LD 10' and love it. You know a 14' arctic is really 15' wide? But anyway! Thanks
    have a good day or evening!
