Hello all. I have an older bobcat 642b that I use for most stuff around my house, moving dirt, wood, trees, debris, SNOW. I plow my driveway with it and after the past few years out in the cold, I decided to get something with a bit more lift capacity, enclosed, and heat. I picked up a Caterpillar 247. I started a golf repair and instruction business last year, and I need to keep the driveway plowed for clients. The driveway is only about 200 yards, but in upper Central Wisconsin we get some snow. I mounted a western plow from an old suburban to a quick attach plate, and had some hydro lines made. I need to figure a way to combat ice in the driveway, because it didn't matter if I had snow tires on the old suburban, tires on the bobcat, or the tracks on the Cat I slide. I'm not looking to make money with my skid right now, but maybe in the future pick up a few driveways to help offset the cost, these things ain't cheap, even used. I used to take my bobcat to the golf course to do some work. Offloading pallets of sod was a bit too much for it, so we had to split them, but hopefully the new machine will not have a problem with it. It's my second skid steer, and my first track machine, and first diesel. Anything you guys can help me with, I'd be greaful. Thinking of picking up a grapple for brush too. I won't use it much, but in the past the times that I would have used it it would have been great and saved A LOT OF TIME. Cheers.
