i just bought a bobcat 753, what do you think the most productive attatchment would be, snow blower, snow blade, bucket, etc. thanks

Lots of variables in that one. If you get frequent storms that produce large amounts of snow, I would opt for the blower. If you're working an area that needs to be cleaned every 2-inches, go for the blade. You can get a wider blade, and cover more area, all while still being able to scoop and lift like a bucket. Just my .02

While plowing one of our customers lots, I watch another company clearing an adjacent lot with a skid steer and a pusher box. He finishes long before me. The little bugger even stacks the snow twice as high as my pickup. O well, at least I am warmer and can drink my coffee while I plow. Go for a protech or avalance!!

look at the ffc pusher box. it allows you to back drag from garage doors, along with the capture ability of a regular pusher box.

I have a new 753 with 8' blade we use in townhouse complexs, works great except on hills or in heavy snow, plenty of power, not enough weight. If I was to do over again I would have bought 7' blade & put Pro-wings on. Bobcat also makes an end kit for their plows, turns plow into pusher, sides fold back when not in use. If you decide to go with a full size pusher I would buy a 6'. All depends on you use.

ARE ANY OF THE PUSH BOXES any better than the others or is it just who sells them in your area . looking into gettin one and was wondering which one.

Looked at the FFC pusher yesterday, nice unit. :)

It's going to be the next one that I buy, only problem is it's going to take a long time to wear out my Protechs!

If I had a 753 bobcat I would only go with a 6' pusher box.
The limited lift that the 753 has makes a 8' too heavy but a six footer would work just right.
