    I'm going to have a couple new John Deere 310J's this winter and need to put some pushers on them.

    I have experience with an 8 foot pusher on a skid but don't know which size would be best for a backhoe.

    One thing for consideration is that these machines will be driven between jobs on two lane roads. I work in a small town and night traffic is low or non-existent but it's still something that has to be dealt with.

    I wish. The budget can't quite handle two of those at the moment.

    I will also have a 310sj this year and I was going to use a 12 footer.
    I think the 14 is a little large for some of the spots I have and the 12 span I think will clean better.
