    It has to be the yellow kind with the triangular braces on the side plates, 8 or 9 feet. Not looking to travel very far from Chicago. Thanks.

    Why does it need to be a ProTech?

    Well, it doesn't have to be a Protech, but the yellow ones with the triangular braces look the sturdiest out of all the brands. I think the ones with the little bars going across are just too weak.

    They are not mine, not going to post pics of his stuff. They are 10 feet and have 90% of the yellow paint in them. If you don't want them he said he is bringing them to an equipment aution in October. If you want them he will call you if not, no biggie.

    What do you mean 2 trips? You mean one for the skid and one for the pusher? Are you towing these for each event?

    I might not be towing them every time it snows, but if I need to move it during a storm it would be a hassle, and there would be a lot of overhang on the sides of the trailer, oh and we get paid by the hour so we would not be making as much money.

    Have you looked at the Bobcat pushers? I think they are offering 0%/24 month fin on attachments...........If your one of those types that wouldn't run one just cause it says bobcat on the side, cause your running another brand machine, you can always peel the decals off with some heat.

    Yeah the Bobcats are out. They don't have any bracing on the side plates, they could probably bend with a hard hit.
