    I am looking at purchasing a snow pusher. I want an 8'er. What brand do you all use and what do you think is the best push box for the money? I am also having trouble finding a dealer in my area (Central Oregon) so I am not to sure what I am looking at for a price. Also what size skid steers do you all use to push them and how do you think the machine works with the pushers? Do you think they are really so much better then a truck plow or bucket?

    we purchased a 8'er last year, but it was tward the end of the season, so it only got used once or twice, so I cant really tell you how well we like it yet. Its a bonell push n plow brand. We have it on a 8875 john deere skid. We demoed a 10'er before we bought the 8, but we found with the 10 if you got into wet heavy snow it had troubles pushing it so we went with the 8. We also just purchased a avalanche one for one of our wheel loaders, so we'll see how that works out.
