    It took me a sec to figure it out, but yes.... they just cut a big a** tire in half and made two pushers out of them... :laughing: hey, whatever works, right?

    Do they need any outside supports on the sidewalls? Are the tires just bolted on to the quick attach plate?

    I'd have to say that is a great example of recycling and ingenuity.

    Looks like the tires clean well, don't damage the pavement and are efficient.

    Heck, when one side gets worn, just flip em over. Basically 3X recycling of what is usually a hazardous waste material.

    OMG. You see the snow blower bouncing snow off the cab of that Mack??? Wonder how the dozer lags work on the pavement, or atleast what does the pavement look like after??

    Nice looking stuff though. Even the older stuff was in good shape.

    We ran them on the Dairy farm and they are awesome to push manure around with in a freestall barn, they have a frame work on the top to help keep stuff flying back at the cab and a rubber deflector on the top leading edge and the frame work bolts to the tire and welds to a bobtach plate.

    They suck on dry surfaces like whats under snow before salting, and they suck all around at pushing snow. I have tried and it'll push small amounts wet and heavy would be ideal, fluffy crap the tire will vibrate across the surface and you will get all these little ridges where snow escapes, no matter how much pressure you put on it. Also they wont get up the hard pack or ice, it wont scrape up tire tracks at all. The width isn't any wider than a wide bucket anyways, your better off with a bucket vs. those in my opinion. The tire is meant to push slop around, so wet heavy snow would work.
