    Doesn't the down pressure from your rig give you enough of a scrape when you're back dragging? I would think it'd be a non-issue :confused:

    Triton I have considered adding a back drag kit to one of my pushers. My concern was that you have to curl the bucket all the way over (which slows you down) and most of the kits do not look like they carry snow. They are just an edge and not a full top enclosure. You might be surprised how well you can back drag by pulling up to something lowering the pusher and going in reverse. Pushers are made to go forward but I have backdragged w/ my skidsteer mount pushers and they did agood job.

    Yes, you can add a backdrag kit to your pusher and they also have an option for an enclosure kit. At least you can on a Pro-Tech.

    My pusher is 3.5 ' deep so that means the closet I can get to a building is about 4' . So it is an issue if I want to clean close to the building.
