    From what I hear, bobcat has a new snow bucket that really kicks butt, give thema call and see what the deal is.

    I looked at Snowwolf, and Kwikway, before getting the Bobcat brand one, but the one from Bobcat works fine, paint job was poor, dealer is going to sandblast & paint in the spring, I'm going to give him different paint so it's not gray, really want it yellow like the rest of my plows.

    I have two of the babcat brand plow too. I agree the paint job is poor.

    Secondly an old truck plow will not work well with a skid steer.

    I have a bobcat with a plow, bucket , and snowblower...All are the bobcat options straight from the factory.

    The Bobcat plow works fine. I suppose of I wanted a Vplow( and I do, but the hospital cut back in equipment purchases thise year) I would look at kwikway or swedetec (I think thats the company name)

    Many maufacturers out there just a matter of choice I guess.

    I may put a urethane edge on the bobcat plow.

    You can get side wings for the Bobcat snow blade for the 7' and 8' models. That would be like a snow pusher only you wouldn't have to buy a new plow. I don't know if they are made of, if steel, you could weld some bars from the blade to the wings like Avalanche does with theirs to get more strength. Good luck.
