    I have been eyeballing a metalpless and HLA for a tight parking lot, going to replace a truck in this lot with a skid steer, This is a high priority lot with the largest liquor store in the country, They want as much of the lot clear at all times. It is hard to do in the trucks we run currently, I have considered a tractor but I think a skid loader with its 0 turn capability would be better for turning into a parking spot and back dragging out between cars. What size blade do you recomend for this application, big as possible but not knocking mirrors off cars! Who is a dealer near cincinnati ohio? Price?

    Thanks Travis

    We have a perfect plow for that kind of site. I would suggest a plowmaxx skid steer model 6-11, 7-12, or the 8-13. We have a 6-11 on our Kubota compact loader and it works fantastic. The plow weighs 1500 lbs, so it will depend on what size skid you have. The 8-13 weighs 2070 lbs.
