    What kind of production rates do you guys fiqure for your skid steers with pushers, and for snow removal operations? I was thinking that a Class A commercial lot would be around 70,000 sq ft per hr. ( Class A lot is wide open, no dividers, closes at night... not to many of these left) Class B 60,000 per sq ft per hour. and Class C 40, 000

    We are currently running Protech Switch Backs, thinking of purchasing Artic model if it would improve effeciancy... Would like to increase 60,000 per hr up to around 65,000 per hr with Artic

    Not sure if these number are really inflated though...

    Any help would be great:confused:

    We average about 50,000 an hour on a lot with lights, islands and cars 24/7 with a pretty efficient operator. He drives a S250 with a 9' blade. Also it is a very uneven asphalt lot that is a PIA.

    Do you consider it a Class A lot or B or C lot? Im not really sold on the Artic Sectional Plows but some of ours are getting older and just need to add more to fleet as well. Artic seems like a great idea, but how often do you run over a curb like the video shows if you stake properly.
