    I run bobcat and the local dealer has one traded in from a city that never used it but maybe 1-2 times. I have an S185-S250. 60 incher I beleive and a bobcat brand. Yeck - the inside of machine has very little rust, original cutting bar and relatively cheap. But is it worth it. Small commercial and alot of residential. Uitility tractors, skids, 5 trucks with plows.

    I have seen them used, never personally. They look really good at blowing back piles, don't know how well they would do blowing in a parking lot... They might work well in residentials.

    I've also been wondering how these might work. You'd certainly have to have a good working float on the loader. I've also been wondering how a blower might work on the front of a backhoe.

    We have a CAT 248 with an erskine blower on it, works real well. Just have to make sure you have the high flow hydraulics to power one.
