12500 for blade and machine on the SSV. Not sure on the liquid setup.
That's bunches less than what I thought.......
That's retail prices too. I bet you could be out the door for 13 depending on th cost of the liquid setup.
I realized I never posted pics of my Grandstand with Boss plow.
Apparently there were some complaints aboot lack of traction...not just me. They came oot with a wheel weight kit, we'll see how it works.
Sorry aboot the quality, the protective glass\plastic over my camera is scratched pretty bad.
Is that electric over hydraulic or full hydraulic controlled?
Wouldn't need the wheel weights if Buffy was running it.....
Btw....Could use a "Few" more Jagoof lights
I was thinking with Oo's Ego would be enough.....
Update...wheel weights don't really help.
And FWIW, I am pretty sure that @Aerospace Eng assessment of the plow being too far from the drive wheels is correct. This machine will be moved to backup status at best next season. Maybe...but it won't be a front line unit.
You don’t think tire chains would help
Or would they just fugger up the concrete?
I'm sure they would help...AND screw up the concrete.
Has anyone had any updated good luck with this machine and the traction issues?
Are the tire chains any better?
Possibly screw in studs in the tires?
What tire pressures are you guys running in the snow tires?
You can you tube it
There’s all sorts of videos from people who think they’re great
Not sure what the difference in conditions is
But I suspect all the videos had ample room to windrow off the snow and it didn’t seem especially wet or heavy
Where as (perhaps) in marks case he had isolated walks that have a berm on both sides and with some wet/heavy snow and nowhere for it to curl off the machine gets bogged down/looses traction.
I think it all depends on your application
Hey Mark, I'm looking at some equipment that I can use year round as I need to get the best ROI I can on what I buy. Have you given up on the Grandstand or have you/your guys learned its limitations and do the best they can with it? I mainly do SMALL residential stuff and have been using snowblowers and shovels to get the job done but would like something with more speed.
It was 4 seasons old so we sold it late summer. Plow never went on last year because we bought an SSV.
I'd buy one to mow with, not to plow or vacuum with.
Hopefully we can demo one of these this winter.
That's from the guy who started and sold ground logic spreaders. Those sprayers wouldn't hold up past 250 hrs. They're a toy compared to steel green or even z spray. I would not be an early buyer of that plow thing. I'm sure there are COUNTLESS kinks to work out.
If you want a decent ROI, and you have a Steel Green or Zspray, get a Zplow.
IMO, a multi season machine is good at a lot of things but excels at none.
What??? They don't excel at fert and squirt...?
