    Not sure on pricing but I can tell you a local company neer me started using them two years ago and now they have all the large commercial work in my area. The pushers really do a great job of getting right down to pavement. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a pusher. They might have a high up front cost but they will pay for themselves not having to pair them with another machine.

    Been running a 12' LD on my ASV the last 3 years and love this thing.Sure up front cost is higher but I use half the salt I use to or less ,lots are clear and dry faster after storm also.And the hardpack these thing peel up it amazing.Would highly recommend one .

    Never broken any blocks. Just not sure the salt savings are as legit as its made out to be. This box sits at one site only and the scraping is nothing to write home about.

    I have two 10ld and one 12ld arctics and they are absolutely great. IMO they are the only pushers to get for skids and uneven lots. We also use a boss bx12 and we really like that as well. IMO if you don't think it is scraping great, something must be wrong. I have used rubber edged, steel edged , all types of pushers and hands down the arctic is the best. The boss is also one worth looking at. They scrape well and are also built well.

    We run over two hundred pushers on any given event and stack like the best.

    Have a 10ft LD on our Cat skid, great results. Extra up front cost isn't significant enough over the life of the pusher to quibble over. Had a rubber edged pusher before this and it didn't scrape near as clean.

    Could someone here compare an Arctic vs. Kage I ve seen the Boss and I am impressed, and I am impressed with the Kage, but the concept of the arctic intrigues me

    just in terms of scraping abilities and overall ruggedness

    Nothing beats the sectional, some swear its the best plow they ever used, others agreed but had issues with the poly blocks.

    I've never used the unit so I can't give you a honest answer.

    Kage is the best. Also the only one I have ever used

    I have looked at both. Demoed sectional at a college to just try it. I seem the Kage. I bought the Kage. I like the two part box blade set up. I can angel the Kage and I like thus far.
