    Unless I'm not seeing the trip protection, you couldn't pay me to drive that.

    No different than plowing with a bucket, i do that very often. As long as you know where the manhole covers are on your lots it shouldn't be a problem.

    I think I see a helmet inside the cab for the driver. that will knock your socks off when you hit one.

    it would have been easier to buy a old road plow with springs and fab that into the bucket.

    one thing is for sure, it probably moves some snow (if it snows)

    There is the same type setup at Northtown Mall here, looks like someone welded three Meyers together

    The home depot in riverhead has the same loader but with a protech pusher sitting in the parking lot. Last year they cleared it with a cat 930 and i think a 950 (might have been bigger) both with protechs and a snow bucket. I have been wondering how they would do it with the one small loader if we get a heavy snow. They made a ton of smaller piles with the one storm we got. The old contractor would make one huge pile.

    It looks like a old road plow. You can see where they took the springs off and bolted solid steel in. It's also solid mounted to the bucket. The chain is there for looks. I sure would hate to catch a curb with that.
