I like old Gal,,,,,, I mean Gehl :laughing:
They were (are) beasts
I had a pusher box on my NH backhoe back when we were doing corporate centers and a guy had one for sale that was like 110HP or some unreal number. It was a skiddy on ‘roids....
Would you do better with chains on rear tires since any type of down pressure will lift fronts? Or is the PB heavy enough to keep the fronts planted?
Dude I have chains for all 4 corners, just a little lazy and so far we've only had small snows and I've been getting by ok. I only use my Gehlfriend here on the property. I have a few large areas where I don't want snow banks and piles so I push it a long way away, mostly because of when it melts off they'll make mud for more weeks than I care to put up with. That pusher does the trick. That's a 102" "Snow Wolf" store bought regular snow plow (ssqa) that I bought new about 15 years ago. It's always been on that 5 ton 115 hp Gehl and all I've done to it is some paint and flipped the cutting edge. It's been incredible if you're ever thinking "that way":thumbsup: the end plates that make it a pusher are an option and I didn't have a use for them when I bought it. I built those 5-6 years ago.
Nap time, I went out at 3:30 this morning.
