    I get a lot of PM's asking me how the M7040's handle the pushers and if I like how they plow. Well, I thought this would be a good picture to post.

    I have never noticed any at all. I am always paranoid about bending the loader arms as I have heard a lot about that happening. We've been safe so far, and keeping them mostly in wide open parking lot.

    The last storm, I had one of the machines (the newer one with only 37 hours on it) go down. I just lost all control of the loader and 3pt hitch. This happened when the bucket was dumped over the opposite side of a fence. I couldn't lift the loader arms up over the fence so the tractor was stuck there. I lowered the 3pt hitch and then shut off the machine and noticed that it creeped up about 2-3 inches while it shut down. So I did the same with the loader over and over until it cleared the fence. Then I had the dealer pick it up (warranty), and it worked find when they picked it up and they haven't been able to re-create the problem. Not sure what this could have been...
