    looking at blowing services this year. stopped by the kubota dealer today and they happen to have case there as well. so i took a walk over and looked at the red ones. i actually like the case machines over the kuboats.

    i orginally stopped to look at at a 70hp machine. was thinking about a m7040-7060 new model.

    today what i looked at was a m5-111, case 115c, and a deere 5101e machine at work.

    i would like to push a 8-10 foot box depending on depth here. what machine would you pick and why?

    i plan to put a big blower on the rear.

    I ran a decent sized kubota tractor for a little bit in the winter a few years back. Had a front loader and a blower on the back. The biggest problem I found with it was getting power to the ground. I can't remember what the model number was but it was big enough to have a 7' blower and a 9' plow on the front. It was a good machine as long as you didn't try to use it like a wheel loader. Not sure how much help this is, I just figured I'd share my experience
