    All of you guys who use their skid loaders for snow removal. what are you using on it. was thinking of getting a 8' snow pusher but didn't think it would be as versatile as a say 810 blizzard plow or some type of v-plow. just curious as to what setups you guys have. we are currently running a 7 1/2' straight plow and it works okay. they say the pushers can move a lot of snow but i still think they will have spill over out the side?

    We use a 10.5' skid steer pusher (Avalanche) on a 5410 John Deere 4x4 tractor (65HP). Works very well, saves alot of time and the rubber cutting edge scrapes down to the asphalt better than the plows do most of the time. The plow trucks have BOSS 8'2'' and 9'2'' v-blades on them, other than the tractor being cold, even with heat houser on, we find the pusher to be very valuable.
