I would like to use a snow pusher on my case 1840 this winter. I like what I have read about the Protech and the FFC. An 8' would be my preference, but my machine isn't that big. I was surprised to see that when comparing the Protech and the FFC that the FFC weighs 1005 lbs. and the Protech comes in at 800 lbs. for an 8'. Now add 277 lbs. for the pull back option and you have a 1300 lb. unit, unless the 1005 includes the pullback. The website doesn't say. My 1840 has a 1500 lb. rating. Would that much weight help me in terms of inertia or would it be a detriment? Add the weight of the snow when stacking and on paper I might be in trouble. I realize the amount and density of the snow is the key factor, and this should be remedied in most situations with common sense plowing. Thanks!
