    Thought I'd share some photos from my long "storm cleanup" big thanks to NEUSWEDE for some advice. After this experience I've purchased a new bucket that will be specifically for mulch (needed on anyway) and occasional any "weather" that may fall.

    Don't get this thread locked with those snow pics! :)
    That Cat looks cool against that backdrop.. Kinda lonely guy working thing. I can't imagine having to work in that stuff. It's like 80 degrees here. Monday it was barely above freezing at 3pm. What a difference a few days make.

    Having never done it I was impressed. Heat worked great, wish the ac had 1/2 that power. The machine pushed and pushed can't complain. I think the telehandler weighing in at 12k likely helped, very sure footed compared to our old articulated unit. The new bucket I've ordered is 8' whereas this one is 84". The deeper sides I think will make the biggest difference.

    That's a big retaining wall.

    Are you using the bucket to clean the lot? I hope its smooth as glass! What coupler type do you have on there? If you want a low cost option you should look into a boss skid steer 9' plow for about 2-2500 and add a set of thier wings for another 700 bucks. You get almost 11' wide and trip edge. This is what we use on our rc100 to clean an entire 63 unit cluster home association.

    That's a nice looking machine!!! How many inches of snow are you cleaning up there?

    He'd be better off with a basic pusher box. Protech is fine.

    Snow buckets are great for moving snow and mulch. Not so much for plowing with.
