    I have a 9 foot meyer plow that has been in my shop with no home for the past 3 years. I was wondering if the plow would be to big for a bobcat S-185. Will it push that much plow? I have standard bobcat tires. Thanks

    "That much plow" is not really the concern, as the meyer plow is among the lightest out there. The bigger question is the snow load. You'd probably run just fine, but I don't think you'll see more than an 8' blade on most loaders that size. Others will have more insight than I do. Good luck

    I think it would be fine. Alot of guys run 810's on that size skid steer.

    Bigger snows, just use less of the blade, and for those light weight storms you'll be cruising with that thing!

    i run a meyer HM 9' with wings and a meyer HM 10' for back up on a 80 hp unit and it has no problems pushing until you get 4-5k lbs of snow in front of you and then you loose all traction.... i'm going to run pickup tires this year and hopefully take care of this problem. BTW the meyer plows are not the lightest out there as stated before... each of these plows weigh over 1200 lbs.
