    What do you think ? Can a lot this size be done in a 5 hour window with this box ?

    You should be able to do a 3 acre lot with a 10 foot pusher in 1.5-2 hrs depending on degree of difficulty with the lot and amount of snow.

    Your truck with an 8' plow could do 40-60k sq ft. per hour

    I'd scap the skid and go with an F 350 with a 8611lp and that way you can plow at like 30 mph and knock that lot out in less then 1 hour.;)

    On a serious note I think you will easily do that lot in under 2 hours with your 2 speed skid and 10 ft pusher.:drinkup:

    Under 2 hours, definetaly. Probably 1.5 hours with an operator with some experience.
