    Finally had a chance to do a comparison between The Metal Pless Liveboxx with steel cutting edges vrs a rubber cutting edge box. In the future I will do other comparisons against steel cutting edges, just did not have one available on this site at the time. From the get go its an unfair fight, but when you consider how many people out there still use the rubber cutting edge I thought this could be enlighting.
    Scenario: Hard pack snow from storm the day before. Present temp is 32 degree or 0 Celsius.

    Me neither, but it was impressive how much snow the Liveboxx peeled up.

    it does better then a rubber box but anything better then a rubber box

    One day I cut thru a lot in my skid and the guy runs a Rubber edge and I drop my steel trip edge box down as I cutting across it and I plowed in the area he already cleaned. I piled it and it was night and day difference

    I can see where that live box would work on one my lots
    Its rough uneven asphalt that they sealed the cracks
    My western V plow works well but My Boss V doesn't pivot like the western does so the Boss leaves a lot snow

    The Price for a 12 foot loader model with bucket mount is $10,520.00 + freight. Dealers may sell for less. I have a dealer lined up in the Chicago market just need to wrap up some loose ends before naming them. There is Ebling and Sons in MI that are dealers. http://www.eblingandson.com/

    Yes we do, we have Ingram snow & Ice control that can sell direct. We also have a storage facility where you can buy direct from us, and they will be shipped from there.

    I was waiting to show these, but since you asked here they are. These three are ready, just let me know how many more you want.
