    Is the Steiger's blade photoshopped because it looks off. I'm assuming they are for plowing backcountry because the blades don't trip and you have tracks. Sweet pics, they must be fun to run.:drinkup:

    Most likely snowmobile trails
    The green tractor has a snowmobile club sticker on the hood

    The blades are for something other then airports or large parking lots because the blades don't trip and we've wrote blades like on the 2 smaller tractors off the in the first storm when we hit a manhole.

    Thats exactly what they are used for. Notice the first two pics the blades are not very high, for that size tractor.

    I would agree with trail grooming. The stx 535 has pleanty of power but the blade would not be able to lift that high as it has only about 2' of front ground to pan clearance. Also in order to lift the fuel tank would have to be full and even then I'm not sure it would lift without the rear end comming off the ground. There is little weight in the back end. I am also unsure if the tracks would hold a grip on a slippery surface. As you are not supposed to turn with the diff's locked in.

    Yeah, a lot of the clubs in upstate New york have tractors like that for their trails.

    oh yeah the company that i used to work for was the first one to try it out and they bought 2 of them before they went under IMO there junk they only work pushing loose material completely underpowered and its worthless without GPS i ran one for a day and jumped off it and jumped back in my 850J that i was running at the time. Maybe if they added a trip edge and a bigger blade with some wings it would prolly would make an awsome snow pusher

    I think that Case would be a little big for snowmobile trials but I could see it working well for pushing at snow dumps, also moving snow uphill at ski resorts, altho that said there is a guy in town running the same machine at the local college, different pusher tho.

    The Case is most likely used for corn silage.
