    I broke a side walk driving on it with the one I rented. It weights 2600 lbs. With the blade and 1000lbs of balast he would be as heavy as a half ton truck.

    Too much damage to the surface. I refuse to run chains on anything. I have a 4400 have no issues with it

    That's funny I use my 2300lb skidsteer with a 6ft blade and do sidewalks 5ft or bigger

    I know a guy runs a 3320 with 5.5 ft front blade and a rear 3pt blade He does lots of walks with his Thinking this year Im going use him as a sub


    If you broke a walk then that walk wasn't very thick or poor concrete

    No it wasn't thick, and it sure shocked the heck out of me.

    It looks like I will let the 3320 sit on the bench this winter. I will plan to put on a 10 foot pusher blader on the 5093 Tractor and chains if needed. It is unclear as to if I should chain the front or rears. This tractor should be able to stack banks well.
    The pick ups can clear the lots and driveways with the Boss DXT 10 ft plow and the skid steers can fill in where needed with the7 ft blower blower or the 10 ft pusher blade.
     
  6. Got a kubota 8560, we run a ten foot pusher on it just fine, thought about a twelve footer but the ten is easier for transport.

    That's a 80hp + tractor It should push a 10 ft plow
     

  8. It has done a great job, so I'm told, my son runs it and I don't get to.

    Our MTL weighs close to 9k, plus 10' P/A and I've never broken a sidewalk. We've actually driven one of our trucks loaded with salt to clear a fire escape and the concrete didn't even scratch.
