    I am looking @ snow pushers for my Case 1845C & am having some trouble finding the size that I should be using. The bigger the better in my case.

    pusher size

    If the Case is a 2-speed then an 8' pusher, if not then a 6' is all that I would go. The reason being is that the pushers don't clean down to the pavement as does a plow. You lose traction and then it's hard to push. They do make pushers w/ a steel cutting edge but I've never used one. I hope this helps.

    I think you should be looking in the 8'-10' range. I'm pretty sure a 12' would be too big.

    Do they make an 1845C w/ a 2-speed? This is the only loader I have ever used so I wasn't aware there was 2 speeds. Maybe it is & I just don't know.

    I do not think they made the 1845c in a 2 speed

    Thanks. I was trying to figure out how it would shift & I would be able to tell.

    They never made an 1845c with a two speed. And a 6' or an 8' pusher will work great. And it will scrape down to the pavement with the rubber edge.....I know cause i have ran that exact set up....

    Thank you for giving your experience w/ the same loader!

    So far, I have heard 6', 8', 10', & 12' from various posts. Since the price difference seems to be about $300 between the different sizes, I want to go w/ the biggest one that you guys think I can run. Since I am running tires (no tracks), I am thinking that traction is why the 8' or less keeps being recommended, correct? I want to be able to use the loader to help out w/ my truck. Since the truck has an 8'6" Fisher EZ-V I am wanting to be able to at least keep up w/ it if not go faster.

    i can tell you that there is no way youll have enough traction to push over 8' box with that machine. A 6' pusher i believe will move twice as much snow as that v plow...the 6' would be perfect. The 8' will take a little finesse,on slippery/icy days you probably wont be able to push a full box , but it will also work good...

    I have a 773 turbo. 56 hp, 5800 lb. I believe that is pretty comparible with a 1845c. I run a homemade snow pusher on my machine. It measures about 9' and works great, however it might wiegh a little less than the "real" pushers.

    I have experience with case machines plowing , and i would recommend a 8' box . The snow conditions are always different. One storm of powder u could use a 10 the next of wet you need a 6. If the storm got so far ahead of you , you can always take it off and push a path with the bucket. Once the path is open , put on the 8 and take smaller bites.
