    Yea the village road department has 2 of them here. And this year they decided not to use them to save money on fuel and labor. So they just sit in the garage.:confused:

    The village of depew has one of them and one v plow machine on tracks. Too bad they hit some concrete thing Wednesday morning with the v and F it up bad :dizzy: Tore and bent the hell out of the frame. I guess its going to cost $12,000 to fix.

    My city has 3 or 4 of them for throughout town. A couple of years ago one of the guys at DPW went off the sidewalk and rolled it on it's side. They righted it with a loader and it drove away. They also have a boom mower on the front of it during the summer months to cut back the sides of the roads. They do move some snow.

    If my town had one of those tool cats they would have that thing so messed up. I would give it about an hour before they are on the phone with the dealer

    Lol

    I hear you.
    The town I grew up in had several Bombardier tracked machines(JW's) and they would run those up the snowbanks and over on their heads all the time.Enough so they had to wear helmets.lol
    The Bobcat Toolcat also has a blower.No photos yet.The town has I think a Trackless also..
