500 in action?

Do you guys have any video of the new 500 in action? I really want to see how your slip hitch works in real world experiences......

Mick76,

Aplogizes!

Video of the 500 Series will be posted soon!

It is very similar to the 400Series only difference is the floating hitch allows the pusher to adjust to uneven surfaces. Self-leveling shoes allows the operator to simply drop and go without worrying about keeping the pusher exactly level. Rugged torsion springs on the steel trip edge model provide exceptional stiffness for attacking even hard-packed snow while riding back fully over solid obstacles. Reinforced side panels prevent them from buckling on impacts.

We will let you know when the video is posted!!

subscribed. I'd like to see this video. I currently run two 8' and a 10' Sometimes with poly sides(for parking ramp decks) instead of metal shoes, guys will chew them up relatively quick if they are uneven at all.

Gents,
Just like the Space Shuttle, the launch of the 500 has been put back a couple of months. We made some changes to the design this spring after more testing in the winter and it has taken time to refine and test the new features. When you finally get your hands on it you're going to like it a lot, I promise. Look for it to be released in time for use this upcoming winter.
Our apologies if we've kept some of you in the dark on this. We'll do a much better job checking in from now on.

Yes, the Optimus will be available before this coming winter. We will be releasing an official announcement, along with pictures, sometime within the next week.

Stay tuned!
