    I have a John Deere 4120 backhoe 4x4, and i'm looking to put an arctic sectional plow on it. How big can I go?..Can I get away with a 10' or 12'? thanks!

    I believe Artic says you can go one size bigger than a rubber edge pusher because they push easier (less friction). That said you could probably use a 14' (I would still use a 12'). I don't know if they recommend a LD or HD for a backhoe, the HD are heavy units. Some of your choice should be based on snow type you typically get (east coast high moisture concrete or rocky MTN low moisture fluff).

    I think 10' would be lots for a tractor that small, anything wider and it's going to start affecting your stability side to side when it's up.
