    My uncle also uses a skid steer for plowing. That setup looks like it would be handy for a few driveways I have that are super tight for turning around.

    That setup would be great on just about any type of account:nod:


    Thanks for sharing! Be nice to see some footage on a bigger snow....from the pics/vids you've posted since owning that setup, it dosent seem you use the "fast-tach" part much???

    I really need to get some vid of my newer setup running the 10ft BC pusher. We've had 2 snows this season that were 6 -8 inchers, I was filling it full, & carrying a pretty good distance....snow was spilling out the sides and moving 15-20ft out in front of me at times wesport

    I actually used the Fasttach last week. I only need it when there are cars parked in the lot. You are correct, I don't use it much, but when I do need it...it's priceless. Plus when I take it over there during business hrs, I don't have my videographer ( wife :) ). She almost froze to death doing these so a thank you to her.

    As far as your claims about your machine and pusher...I'll believe it when I see it!:jester:

    I've used it on drives and it's way better than a truck. Even a truck with a pull plow, when the drives aren't straight pulls out or are "L' shaped and you're leaving a good chunk unplowed by the garage doors. Bobcat can get to all the nooks and crannies. Only drawback is towing and frequent loading /unloading if your route isn't real tight.

    Yes, blade is much better IMO, but buckets have there place too.

    :D Thanks, took me a while to come to grips with it, I'm ok now.

    Fun watching your videos Learned a lot

    How often do you replace the cutting edge and what type of edge is it a 6'' or a 6'' flip edge
    Since you running down pressure all the time. I know in another thread you posted you do that to keep the plow on the ground .
    Does your Skid have a float mode?

    Haven't replaced cutting edge yet, but before next season I will have to. Has 6" cutting edge and I don't know if it's reversible, going to try it though. Skid has float but I don't use it. I tried it on my old loader with the bucket and it was a PITA.
