    Sweet! I was talking to Collin from Columbia Landscape and he loves his so far. Just like the BOSS BX12, both have the slip hitch and steel trip edge. Got to love looking behind you and seeing nothing but black top. Thumbs Up

    Please make sure to keep the updates coming on the Boss. What else have you run for pushers ? Just so we know your comparison experience.
    We started with a 14' Protec backhoe model, the next season we added a 14 HD Artic, this year I added a 14' Protec loader model. I personally love the Artic, but have questions about the long term durability & parts took forever to get, last season durring a heavy wet snow we bent both sideplates, however savings in salt alone pay for the increase in price, wear items, etc. We bought the second Protec due to these questions, after we get a couple seasons on it I'll see how its held up, but I've already noticed a couple minor things.
    If I were the one running them personally, I would run the Artic....but I'm not & the operators do require more training, caution, must genuinly care about your equipment & not push it beyond the design limits to run the Artics.
    I like the sideplate bracing the Boss has, it will be intresting to see how it works out for the & if they expand the line.

    The Arctics are quite amazing though and they really are scraping away the competition!

    Will do but we really haven't had much in the way of snow yet. Today we got about 4" of very light fluffy snow but my Lowe's was down to black top through out the storm :D Hopefully next week they're talking another storm.

    Hey man, I gave your number to another guy for a skid steer model. He was looking at them last year but thought they were too expensive so I told him about the pricing this year.....we'll see.
