    We're adding a cat 420 this year and I've been doing a lot of reading and watching on plowing with backhoe....

    Not many videos or pictures on this site, let's see what your using! And any opinion or feedback would be great

    We rented a 420E Cat last year, it worked real good with a 14ft box on it, lots of power.

    We use a Terex 760 to stack and relocate piles when we get in too deep. Couldn't do it w/o it.

    The case seems to push pretty good!

    We're going to be putting either a liveboxx or plowmaxx on the new backhoe...I always wanted to try a liveboxx to see how well it scrapes but the plowmaxx is the best invention ever, we have one now and it's so versatile...I hope a liveedge will get added to the plowmaxx

    It would be really nice to have a backhoe and a pusher around for piece of mind for us, especially for heavy snow.

    You can get LiveEdge on the new Metal Pless PlowMaxx. We Have several still in stock.

    Just watch out for parked cars trees light posts.. They tend to sneak up on you.

    I've used a Deere 710D powerful fuel hogg and a Deere 310 non turbo. Biggest dog ever. Id put a 8' blade of pusher on it max. Good to relocate snow with and load salt that's about all.

    All of the backhoes use 12' pushers. We do have some 14' pushers on our loaders. They handle the 12' perfectly.
