I've got a 743 Bobcat, and am looking to either purchase a larger snow bucket, or blade for it. Besides price, what are some pros and cons of each?
If you think about it, you'd be in less trouble if you were waiting for parts for the plow on your skid steer than you would if it were mounted on your truck. Once the plow quits working, the truck is pretty well useless too. With a skid steer you could at least switch to the bucket and keep on working. The risk of a breakdown might not be worth it for a truck mounted plow, but might be acceptable for a skidsteer mounted one.I/d love to get a blizzard plow, but there are no dealers anywhere close to here, and I'd be concerned about how long parts would take to get if I was in a pinch.
