    anyone use one? Anything good/bad compared to any other standard brands like buyers/snowdogg, protech etc?

    I'd rather go with a fancier push box as our 3rd box but the dealer will wrap attachments to the new skid steer into the finance package.

    It appears to be similar in weight to the protechs we use now,

    our 8' is 800lbs
    our 10' is 950lbs

    Deeres 10' is 1,035lbs ... in the pictures they look flimsy though? is it just the photo angle maybe? Id hate to spend another 3k on a box that isnt as tough as id think others on the market are.

    Frontier "in green" makes a 9' steel trip edge for $3400ish but its not for skid steers, its for the deere loader tractors, which we had our brackets removed and changed out to the quick coupler attachments for skids right off the bat when bought new.

    Why do some models, like this one, have that front top bracket, just as extra support?

    Is this there because the main box isnt as thick of steel and needs the reinforcement or maybe thats why it weighs MORE than a protech?

    The front bracket is a back drag edge.

    I'd rather get a Protech, they have backdrag models too. When do you get the 332D?

    Why does it always have to be Protech?

    Well, to me it looks like its a little sturdier because of the triangular wedge bracing on the side panels.

    Personaly I think the Deere is a POS!!.

    It looks like they just kept bolting crap to it, as Ideas popped into their heads.

    The one that our dealer has had for 2 years, is way to tall to see over, and it costs WAY to much. We're talking close to the price of an Arctic.

    I've got a guy hear in PA that is building "The Drifter" snow pushers. Real nice set up and he has those back drag edges too. Tell me what size you are looking for and I'll get you numbers.
