    First impression video. We had a small snow event a few days ago and were excited to try it out. I have tried quads with plows, trackless, holder, MT85. They all have their place, but the maneuverability of this unit will outperform all of them. The others are only good if you have wide open, straight line sidewalks. The Rogue units are unreal.

    How much. Priced a ssv last year and it was comparable to lightly used rc30 Skid steer

    Pretty sweet. But a shovel would be faster. Need to see a vid of that actually plowing snow on ice. I have used quads with plows for years. I just do not see that thing pushing any amount of snow without getting stuck all the time. Thanks for sharing.

    Most don't wait till there is a ton of snow. Similar to the snowrator and the guys are happy with them.

    From what he said it was her first time on it, looks like shes being careful. Probably goes faster with some more experience....

    I'll take some of that bet against the shovel not winning. I'll even spot him two shovel guys with him.

    I am more impressed with the made in meatchicken boss. . Lets race for pinks with about an inch or less. On 1/16 mile sidewalk. Include hooking up your trailer, loading and unloading equipment. Name time and place? You bring rouge maverick and i will have my shovel.

    How about you shovel 4" of wet snow for 5 hours, then we race for pinks?

    What you fail to comprehend is that machines don't get tired, don't throw their backs out, don't get sick...they just work at the same pace consistently.

    But since you're not in this industry, once again you have no idea what you're talking about. This is what...the third or fourth time you've shown your ignorance regarding snow and ice management?

    Most can't survive on 1/16 of a mile of sidewalk. Got to have a full day. How about a couple of nice size City blocks for pink slips. How many of them cheap things on wheels you going to bring. I don't think they will hold up. I'm concerned about volume, this is how you earn money.

    Oh no... You said the machines would get stuck, so let's do 4-6" at least and as I said a lengthy piece of sidewalk maybe 1/2 a mile or so...

    I'll be finished including salt and at home vacuuming the Doritos of my stomach while you're finishing your first couple hundred feet...

    By the way, an inch or less you might be better off with a BR instead of a shovel...

    I think that rogue maverick would beat my trackless in City blocks with side streets and wheel chair ramps. He would be long gone by the time I got lined up. Probably not on a 2 mile straight stretch.where there is no Wheel chair ramps and corners. Other than that he will smoke you with a trackless or similar.

    So vid #2...that was painful. 2 passes with an SSV it's cleared and salted. 8 MPH so 30 seconds?

    Backdrag the entrance...minute tops? With a broom so it's even cleaner.

    I thought you didn’t plow snow professionally nor commercially? What makes you qualified to say a stand on machine is better than a shovel on a sidewalk.

    I'm pretty sure that was for me even tho you were scared to quote. I was working in snow and ice when you were a twinkle in your Daddy's eye. This is what makes me qualified. Don't worry do good and someday you won't have to plow snow. :nod:
