    :help: Hi, first time post for me. What do you guys thinks about putting a snow pusher on the front of a 580k case 4x4 backhoe/loader? I'm sure it will push it fine but would just like to get others thoughts. Also it is a 4 cylinder motor not a six cylinder. Should I buy it or not? thanks alot scott

    We use a JD 310 4x4 with a Daniels 12ft Pusher and it works great.

    As long as you're not trying to do driveways with it.......

    Yeah, a 12 pusher and it should do fine.

    a 12' box will be fine. as long as the height is only 30-36" the 48" and up modles were made for wheel loaders

    your 4 cylinder will do just fine: Note a turbo will get better fuel milage than one with out,

    I have a 12' box on a JD510D ( 100hp 20,000lb 4x4) lots of fun to push snow with. nothing else works this good.
