    not that it was for plowing snow, but I used to work for an excavation company locally and we had a "dozer" blad on a CAT225.... It worked AWESOME cleaning up cranberry bogs.. but man, I bet you'd need to be careful backdraggin with that thing...you can put some serious pressure down on a driveway with that...

    I've seen that before...I just can't remember where???

    Would work good for those resi backdrags...and tight spots in parking lots like around dumpsters and carraige islands, etc...

    Shue it would work for drives. But it would take to long to do them since you would need to back in, drop your out riggers, reach out to pull in 3 to 4 times depending on drive width, stop pick up outriggers. Get turned around. back drag a bit to be able to get behind the snow you have aready pulled down the drive. then push the snow up into yard.

    All these steps with out gouging the drive way!!. I would assume this machine has some special use. Maybe loading docks or something.

    There WAS someone on here that had pics of a backhoe that had a salt spreader on it. As I remember, thy were able to tilt it to load. The wrist was bent all the way back when the spreader set level.

    Could see something like that being used to pull piles off of lawn areas and onto pavement to be scooped up with the bucket and removed. Seems very unpractcal dragging it on the pavement.
