    At least 2 years, one company here in town has one, reminds me of an Artic.

    Cat was selling rebranded Arctic pushers for a while, though that is certainly not an Arctic. I'm not familiar with the HLA stuff but I'm willing to bet the other guys are right with it being theirs. Cat doesn't have a history of making their own attachment products. They can rebrand somebody elses and be just as happy as was the case of my Cat HM312 Forestry Mulcher which is nothing more than an FAE brand head with a pretty Cat Decal on it.

    Yea I had one, Cat yellow and Cat name on the poly blocks....Not sure of the differences, I thought Cat or Patten bought Arctic anyway....

    I thought Arctic owned Cat?

    Third winter for sure that Cat has been having these built for them. My dealer told me Cat has the rights to manufacture these, so I gather he meant Artic builds for themselves and Cat only.

    I wonder what the price difference is. The cat pusher may cost more for the brand. Any info?

    I have several Cat (Artic pushers) and they are the same. Price was competitive with the market for Artics.

    I have been interested in a pusher but I am out west and shipping/distribution is difficult. Cat may be a good alternative for someone like myself where plows are harder to find.
