I'll be curious to see what suggestions your friend has to offer (as well as anyone else on the forum), maybe I'm missing the trick all together?

Most definitely. Think about the vast volume difference between a 10' pusher and the bucket.

Here's mine in all her glory:

That is a very cool photo.

I like the Power Drab comment

I've seen some idiots slam the hoe back because they jam the lever forward thinking the faster they do it (and the higher the throttle) the better...good way to break the latch/lock. You'll get good enough at it that you won't have to bring it up, then lower it then bring it back. You just bring it up and latch it and go...just like the link below.

Nice hoe btw. Nice to see a case hoe on this forum. Now don't forget to update with pics on the job.
Thanks for all the help guys.. My buddy showed me how to do it in 5 seconds

last year I plowed with an older case 580 and a 590. Great rigs for plowing snow. Best snow plowing rig out there. Lots of traction and great vision of your plow. The rig I ran had a 12 foot angle blade. You should enjoy the power in the snow.

Don't you reverse boom direction at the breakover point?

Every Case i have been on since the 580B has been that way.
