    Well I figured I'd start it off by asking some actual customers what they thought about avalanche pushers. We may be adding a skid with a pusher this year and would like to hear back from some of you who use them.

    What do you want to know? Ive had a bunch (15 or so) in the past-still have 3. Generally good pushers, steel cutting edge is a must. They have their limitations, like any other pusher. Probably one of the better built ones IMO.

    Pretty good unit but its a little weak in a few key areas:

    1) The weld in the centre is a poor design. Can easily split the pusher in two parts with a powerful machine in heavy snow.

    2) Bottom of the std mount is weak. Stack up high with a big machine and you will need to run top chains or you will tear the hanger out of the push frame for the bucket. Outside of that they work fine.
