    Do you think you could have went with 12 ft's. I find the Arctics push really easy, I'm wishing I had of went bigger.

    Twelves wouldn't work. We plow mostly office parks with narrow spaces. Likee awnings and loading docks. These (3 of them) work well for that. We can load them enough to where they will pull down the loaders.

    My other one is on or big CTL. the operator can clean 90* parking lot corners. Its just un-real. Another think we like is how they bak drag. BARE PAVEMENT!!! as far as you pull. Can't do that with a truck. One of the lots my CTL does is a lot we took from another (BAD) contractor this year. They were using 3 trucks to do it, and I think it tooks hours to do. Its maybe a 3 to 400 stall lot. Maybe. Nit overly sure about it. But My ASV and its box can do it in an hour. And its bare pavement.

    We are unhappy with the rubbers. We have gone through a few of them. (We have pushed 8 times now)

    The best thing is that they WILL CLEAN TO BARE PAVEMENT!! My salt usage is way down. I am thinking about getting 3 more of these next year and just use loaders for 90% of the plowing and just do streets and sanding with the trucks.
