it works really good for city sidewalks and tight spots. I just wish it had a enclosed cab it gets pretty cold. Also its pretty small trust me im 6 ft and im smashed in pretty tight.

Yeah I was thinking about it for pushing back snow piles in my lots and doing all my walkways and that would probably be about it. I recently found one on CL that was pretty cheap.

You do alot of snow? I have a S650BC but with yours I think you need about a 6ft pusher or bigger bucket.

Yeah i do alot of snow mostly commercial and i totally agree but its prefect for doing the sidewalks after the snowplows come through. Just need a couple more snows like we had this past week and maybe ill get a bigger bucket or maybe a snowblower attachment if they make one.

Nice work, how do you like your Metro? I've been considering one i would really prefer the TTHP but metro is alot better on the budget. Any trouble turning without leaving rutts?
