    We just got a '06 244J and i have a couple of questions that you may be able to help with!

    We have a snow box (pusher) chained to the bucket and will use it that way this season until we figure out what may the be the best way to setup. We will likely weld a back plate to the box in order to be able to switch between bucket and box.

    - Has anyone tried to use the return to dig function to make sure that the snow box is sitting correctly on the ground without having to eyeball it? Any success?

    - We have the switch panel and the right side of the seat, are all the switch's backlit when a funciton is on, headlights, float, etc.?

    Anyone that has any ideas/comments (low cost), effective ways to use this machine with the box - would be greatly appreciated!

    I have used the 244 and the baby Volvo, they are very handy and will push a lot specially if it has a diff lock,great visibility. Dig function wont work, have to feel and eyeball .
