    Hi Guys. I am looking at getting a Cat 236, and I want to get an 8ft box plow for it. Is that a good size for it, or is it too big? Thanks, John Gibson

    I ran a 236 last season with a 9 foot straight plow. Obviously a little different but it had no problems with that. I ran factory tires which were not great but it still easily got the job done.

    8ft Arctic sectional would work great. I ran a 10ft in 10 inches of snow on a 236 rental machine cat gave us when our 252 blew a hydro motor. got some crummy pictures to prove it

    I run a B8 on a 226. You'll be fine. Mine works well, unless its really heavy, even then we still manage.
