    Anyone run a 16 footer on a 544D? I was planning on a 14 footer but wanted to see if anyonw else is pushing it.

    really depends on how deep and wet the snow is,..or if something else opens the lane and you can take only part of the next push if need be

    I know..I'm just wondering generally. I ran a 928G with a 20 footer and it handled it fine but this is going to be on a site with less help at times so I was planning on not pushing it and going with a 14.

    12's and 14's are the most common. 14's and you'll have a tuff time with wet snow. I'm sure others will pose additional questions such as type of lot? Distance of push? Cars? Empty? Etc.
    I have both but mainly run 12'
