    Im not a huge fan of the pusher. I have one and it doesnt scrap like a blade. I have two 810 power plows and love them but I dont think the power wings would be a huge advantage for a skid steer. Dont really need them if its on a huge lot so I figured the speedwing would be more costly and effective. Would it be possible to convert a pickup speedwing to a skid steer mount and hydros? Any thaughts?

    Ken the 810 or better yet the 8611LP is a great fit for a skidder.

    The speedwing works good and gives the benifit of no extra controller but you lose the abiilty to get wide at the touch of a button and then slim down for travel or tight spots.

    Converting a pickup plow is a PITA actually and you have alot of extras that you don't really need.

    I've done 1 speedwing on a skidder plate ( pull one from an 810 SS and mount it to the speedwing ) and used the skidders aux hydro circut for angle. Much easier than the pickup conversion.

    The 8611LP is not stock avail in a skidder but we do the same thing with an 8611full size SS model just swap out the blade and the quadrant from the 8611 full size.
