    I am looking to plow my own drive way and a few of my contracts with a small skid loader, i also have a parking lot that is 75x75 i have a john deere 2305 with a blower and a loader. but that takes to long on the lot. i know i want a small skid steer. i would like to buy a bobcat 371 or 453. or a little case, an older one as i use the tractor the most. my question is what should i put on here a blade or a pusher? i need to do personal drives with it too. not just the lot. i know the loader is a little small but i will take it slow on teh large stuff and if it is too deep the 2305 with the 2 stage blower will eat it up.

    thanks,

    If you are doing drive ways, I would be more likely to put a reversible plow on it. But, you could probably get away with a pull back pusher.
