    I like it. Haven't seen one with a snow plow yet. I'm suprised these machines haven't caught on more. I've only seen a handfull of toolcats so far. What's the difference in price compared to a ProGator or the high line of the Toro series?

    Remember, I'm in Florida so I don't have a clue about snow removal but is that thing legal to take on streets? Or do you haul it on a trailer?

    I like the idea of that machine. Small enough to do small commercials. Also great utility vehicle for rest of season. If you don't mind me asking, is that unit 4wd & what is the cost of same w/ a plow (what width is the one pictured 6', 6.5', 7'??

    Thank you & good luck with that. We currently plow approximately 40 commercial places w/ 3 trucks most of them are w/in 5 miles of our shop.

    :dizzy: 32k wow. To get the most out of it are you going to buy other attachments to get it to pay for itself?

    Holy Cow! 32 G's? That's one expensive golf cart! I saw one of these things in action with a large mowing deck out in front cutting the median at an expressway exit. It was knockin' it out. What hp are these things? I know they're nothing like the Cushmans, and such. As a matter of fact, there are alot of manufacturers that have similar vehicles of this close to this (physical) size (Polaris, Kawi, etc.), but I bet they don't have the powerplants that these do.
