    Been Plowing with skid steers as a sub for 4 years, have been picking up a few of our own lots and have a few 1 acre lots that are requesting to be sanded. I have spare one ton i could put a sander in, just looking for recommendations on size and brand ?

    Really depends on your use for it. How much will you be using it and who the dealers are close to you. I wouldn't buy anything where if j got in a jam my dealer couldn't get me parts.

    I have a snow ex and it seems to be ok. Kinda chasing a wiring issue right now. The motor keeps over heating. If k was to do it again I would get the boss vbx 8000 that seems to be a really nice unit but they are expensive

    Get a western tornado with a vibrator. We have been using their blizzard twins for 2 years now with only minor problems.
