    I'll guess at least $20,000.00. That has got to be THE BADDEST BLADE AROUND. Talk about time management.

    Very nice looking piece of equipment. I wonder if it works as good as it looks? Time will tell as people buy them and put them to work. Mike :)

    I talked to these guys at the st. Louis symposium. Very nice and helpful. Answered all my questions and quoted me a price of (I think) around 8k on the smallest version of that plow.
    I later talked to a dealer attending the show who really liked the pusher boxes the company made but just thought those plows have to many moving parts for him.

    Forget the term "4 way" plow. That thing is an 11 way multi use tool. Very very interesting setup. I think ill have to get some brochures on that badboy.

    How much time do you think those innovations might save over a regular pusher box? I think the only main advantage i see is that you may not need to dispatch pickups to do cleanup work in tighter areas., but that thing is still 10'+. If i sound like a simpleton its b/c im not an equipment operator.

    The advantage I see is being able to do a number of different jobs with one machine. While you may not save time over a pusher box, you've eliminated the need for a number of vehicles to do a job.

    I have personally seen one of these units in action on a mid-sized loader.It was incredible.It would pay for it self in time saving in the first year easily.I was just totally amazed at how much snow it could move,and not lose a single flake.

    Only thing I didn't like was the blade,and the wings are almost flat.It has no snow rolling action whatsoever which makes it harder to push,increasing fuel usage and wear and tear on the machine.I guess that isn't as much of a problem on heavier tractors and loaders.

    Here's another plow I'm looking at, the end plates are spring loaded when down, and you can convert from a pusher to an angle plow by pulling two pins and folding the end plates up

    Looks like a good unit from here. Strong and very use full. The road plow looked sweet:cool:

    Steve, I checked out the storm maxx before the symposium and then got a first hand look there. Very impressive pc of equip if you have the Equip to run it. Lots of versatility. Like Wyldman said though your minimum is 10' so you have to find the places for it. In lot and clear plowing it's got to be awesome. Functionality of a box plow and a blade combined into one.

    BTW Here goes Bill pushing the envelope again. Think we can get a sidewing on the loader too???

    I guess it's not the same company, but seems similar to the plow on the Deere in this thread, no? (Scroll down about 2/3 of the way for the pics I'm referring to)
