    Lots of variables in that one. If you get frequent storms that produce large amounts of snow, I would opt for the blower. If you're working an area that needs to be cleaned every 2-inches, go for the blade. You can get a wider blade, and cover more area, all while still being able to scoop and lift like a bucket. Just my .02

    I second the blade. Unless you are doing large parking lots. My skid steers are doing condos, so I use the blade.

    While plowing one of our customers lots, I watch another company clearing an adjacent lot with a skid steer and a pusher box. He finishes long before me. The little bugger even stacks the snow twice as high as my pickup. O well, at least I am warmer and can drink my coffee while I plow. Go for a protech or avalance!!

    look at the ffc pusher box. it allows you to back drag from garage doors, along with the capture ability of a regular pusher box.

    I have a new 753 with 8' blade we use in townhouse complexs, works great except on hills or in heavy snow, plenty of power, not enough weight. If I was to do over again I would have bought 7' blade & put Pro-wings on. Bobcat also makes an end kit for their plows, turns plow into pusher, sides fold back when not in use. If you decide to go with a full size pusher I would buy a 6'. All depends on you use.
     
  8. ARE ANY OF THE PUSH BOXES any better than the others or is it just who sells them in your area . looking into gettin one and was wondering which one.

    Best attachment for a skid is good heat and something to hold coffee.Next would be a protech

    PRO-TECH snow pusher would be the best choice
