    I am looking into renting a JCB 520 for the winter. I am wondering what size pusher and brand you would recommend. Also does anyone know if the hook up on these is different than a skid loader? Thanks

    I've been looking into those machines too. Let us know what you think of it if/when you get it. I've seen an 8' box on one before. How much HP are those?

    I have one and it is hands down the best piece of plow equipment we own. We push an 8' and 10' pusher with ours but I wouldnt go any bigger than 10' in a heavy storm. Its super fast and with the 4 wheel steer it gets around **** great. The hook up is different than skid steer but I bought an adapter to run skid steer attachments on mine. Good luck. You will love it!

    What do you get for road speed and how much HP is it?
