    We just got an 8 foot pro-tech thursday, finally, for our skid steer. We got a couple inches friday and I plowed some of the lots with it, I was AMAZED! you guys are right they are good. Me and another guy in a pickup plowed one of the schools in about 1/2 the time it usually takes with 3-4 trucks in the same amount of snow. As Tony the Tiger would say- "their great!"

    Now... don't go and give money back to your customer because you figured out how to be more efficient on the site.

    And, if you're charging "per push" - you now have an abject lesson in why you want to become as efficient as possible in your operation.

    When you get a foot of snow, the difference gets to be even more dramatic.

    Go get 'em !!!

    8 footers work well on Bobcat 753.
    10 footers work well on Bobcat 853, although we have used 10 footers on 753's in light snows (6" or less).
    Don't know about other brands.

    Jrb. lawn care I think they are around $3,000 or less, Three years ago we bought a 12' Pro-Tech Backhoe Model and it was a little over $3,000. AND they are the best thing ever made!!!!!

    Well.... Lipinski doesn't own 50+ of the skid steer models. He's got 50, or so, of a range of models - mostly the larger ones.

    We have 42 of them, and only 6 are for skid steers.

    Either way.... sno pushers ARE the way to go for production.
