    Landscaping is completely shut down in the winter here. Too cold, pain in the a$$ to move snow just to work, grounds frozen... all that good stuff. Works out perfect, when the landscaping season is over I go work for this company, plowing and doing snow removal after storms. Then when the landscaping season gets going I go back and work for the family company.

    Yes its so nice to work with some other loader operators that know what they are doing!! Although I did have to give a lesson to one on how to use the snow pusher the correct way. haha

    I actually really like the Komatsu, pushes snow really well. And its really quick for loading trucks. Its also very comfortable (spent 38hrs in it last week in 4 days), They just need to make better window defrosters. Either have to have the heat blasting and a window open or the heat barely on and be very cold. But every loader I have been in has that problem. Need some vents on the ceiling or something to blow on the top half of the windshield.

    I do not. I could definitely use it but I want to keep the almost zero tail swing. I work on so many tight lots. The machine is a little tippy with my big 36" digging bucket. If you are looking at getting the long arm option of the machine definitely get the counterweight.

    no long arm, we too work in tight areas. I also dont want to loose the lift capacity, and then add a couple hundred pounds to the weight.
