How do the skid steers work? I know a guy who had V-plow for one and he had a lot of difficulty with it. This is one reason I have avoided a pusher box for mine. Easier just to use the mulch bucket if I need to do some stacking.
hmmm. traction is adequate? This is my real concern. I could see using them for walkways, stacking and clearing areas unreachable by a plow truck such as loading docks and ramps in an industrial park I plow. It is mostly flat but lad thing I would want is the operator sliding sideways into something.
the only time you break traction with a skid steer is when you stop or try to turn, as long as you just go striaght and keep you momentum they can push a good amount of snow I ran a 8' box on a new holland lx 865, and alotta times it';s much more productive than a truck, their just not good in large areas and youu cannot turn and push at the same time (meaning curved areas) other than that they work great.
That was my concern. I know they are four wheel drive and work well in dirt and sand. My though was trying to stop and maneuver with a pusher box. Not so much getting started but stopping. Snow and asphalt is a slippery combination for the common skid steer tire.
