Considering HD14......

I'm considering a HD14 pusher, and was wondering if anyone out there who has one could give me some feedback as far as durability, maintenance, and over all performance. I see one lot locally that gets cleared with a sectional and the lot looks great, but just looking for some overall feedback.

Ive got a 14 HD model .... I just replaced the cutting edges after 600+ hours (try that with a rubber edge pusher)...unlike the na sayers on here I havnt done any maint on any of my sectional units and they dont cost me any more to run then a traditional pusher minus the initial upfront cost.... but they save you a ton of money with salt and labor costs

What about the poly blocks? I understand the operator has a lot to do with it, but what kind of life can i expect out of those? and what is the cost associated with replacing one of those?

My experience----- 4 years on the HD and no broken blocks (and we stack the banks higher then the loaders roof).... if you do break a block id say its about a 10-15 minute job to replace assuming you have another and the wrenches (its only 4 bolts).... ive got a few spares just in case and I think they cost about $50 per block. I bought them when I bought the HD pusher years ago so they might have gone up in price by now
