    Hey everyone, we need to make a decision. I am leaning towards the 16 foot, and my brothers 14 foot. What do you think?

    I would go 14 not for lack of pushing power or traction mainly for turning and manuverability. I am currently building rotating wings for my 4x4 salt truck will throw up some pics in awhile.

    Geez Paul...is this a loaded question?
    14 foot for walkways, 16 ft for driveways.

    Is that really on the truck? That is great. Can you put angle pistons on that? I would love to see some picks on the hook up. But totally for the 14' for manuvering.

    You are obvoiusly planning on carrying snow long STRAIGHT distances with that set up, so always go BIG.

    16 ft, really is there a lot of difference between the manuverbility of a 14 vs 16? both are awkward

    I think it's a loaded question... But, 14ft. is what I'd go with.

    Well I thought we would be going for the 14 foot, but 16 it is. My brother John started working on it yesterday.
