    Here is a picture of the Cat 908 loader that I used this winter out in Steamboat Springs, CO. Not a bad little machine. Had to run 4 tire tires with 19 cross lengths. Did a good job, but the travel speed wasn't fast enough. We will have a Cat 924 with Bridgestone Winter tires next year. The Daniels wing plow is for sale. The 12 foot was too wide for most of the drive we did. Would prefer a 10 ft instead. mark

    You bet. Around here the norm for plowing are Cat skid Steers--The only local skid dealer in town. Or the other most common plow choice is a Cat 924G Loader with sipped snow tires. The 924 for should go well with the Cat 305CCR and the 4 2006 International 7600 dumps we just purchased. Go big or go home, right? Good spending week of last. 3 new dump trucks, the mini ex, and a piece of commercial land. I love mountains of Debt. Close to 600k last week. Gotta love Steamboat Springs, CO. mark
