    Now is the time. Seriously looking at this unit to fit our residental niche market. Small footprint, front mount blower. Any one have one, rented, demoed etc. Would like some input! Also what type of blower should I consider on this unit. Our dealer has about 5,6 different makes that they have sold or sell so not sure. Looking at I think a 54 incher at the moment.

    Havent personally used a wacker but i have outfitted a bobcat s185 with a schulte 72 inch blower. The biggest point to check is that the hydraulic capacity of the loader matches the flow of the motor on the blower. My 185 puts out 17 gpm and we matched it with a 5 cu in motor, works well, throws wet snow 15+ feet and dry forget it, you cant stop it!

    We have a Protech blower for our skidsteer, just bought it last year. Blower is a great tool to have in the box. We do a lot of properties in the city and as you can imagine the walks start to close in after a while, the blower makes a big difference after a few storms. We also use it to load out roll off trucks during removals, it loads them reasonably fast. Also, we do a lot of pile consolidation for those who don't want off site removal, we can stack the snow pretty high.
