    Looks like that works well, we just pull out from under with a 12ft angle blade on a 2sp skid steer but if you have alot of trailers and a decent amount of snow I could see that it could be beneficial. I would guess that you want an experienced operator running the tractor.

    Our best guy runs it, we only use it on really big storms. I like the 12ft on the skid idea though, never thought of that. The one place we do has close to 5000 trailers, with probably 1000 in the yard at any time, so yes it takes quite a while to do them all. It would be easier to run if it was out front but we made this blade up for around $1000, since we already had the blade.

    The wing is a good idea but we made the blade 4.5 years ago and I didn't know about the wing.

    Great idea JD, enjoyed the video. We have a Costco Warehouse, and use an offset boxplow. Works well on trailers parked straight, but those at an angle, like in your video are real pita. Thanks

    Nice blade.

    Looking at the vid it seems to do better then I 1st thought it would.
    Not much snow at all rolls over the top which is what I thought of when looking at the height of it.
