    I'll get some more pics soon. We've been passing it around to guys around town to demo and getting some nice responses.

    Its a fix mount like a pusher. They are coming out with angle plows and hydraulic wing plows with this kind of cutting edge, but on special order only.
    Here is a video of the cutting edges in action.http://youtu.be/qRJghhd5MXc

    That looks like it would do a great job!

    All compression springs?

    What would pricing be on say an 8 foot and a 10 foot skid steer mount model?

    An 8 foot with 36 inch moldboard and wings weighs 1470 lbs and retails for $7,315.00 US + shipping. A 10 foot weighs 1700 lbs and retails $7,800 + shipping.

    Does the hitch slip on the backside? Neige, when you say retail, is that as good as it gets? I have 2 10' ld arctics on large skids that we were looking at replacing with new arctics but this has me intrigued because essentially it looks as though it would do as good as an arctic but not have the rubber block issues. My skid guys seem to tweak the side plates on the arctics but thoese are braced which would help. I would love to get more info on these and where the closest dealer is to nw Indiana. My only concern would be getting parts when things break.

    You didn't watch the whole thing did you? The disclaimer in the invisible print at the beginning says: "Warning, this video may be hypnotic, do not watch more than 30 seconds"

    Yes it does, it will also pivot left and right. A dealer may sell for less. As for parts there are really hardly and parts at all, and should you need parts we can get them shipped to you, usually by next day.

    I am very interested in purchasing one of these boxes to give it a try on a large skid steer. Neige, I emailed and pm you about it last week. Let me know who I need to talk to in the states and where the nearest dealer is. I'm from northern Indiana.

    they have two 14 foot loader models on the way and one 10 foot skid steer model. Talk to Jim 616-532-8400

    The company is founded in Plessisville, so they came up with the name Metal Pless.
