    New design is I believe, however I'm not sure that's a box I would want to abuse on a gravel lot.

    BOSS is the best bang for the buck.

    Boss looks like a nice setup but sounds like its hard to get, backorders.

    Just to clarify Kage Systems have steel trip edges.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Check out Ebling in Grand Rapids they carry Metal Pless, and you can leave with one right away.

    Matt,

    We would of course suggest one of our rubber edge models and would love to have you as a customer. Whether you choose Pro-Tech or not I would strongly suggest choosing a rubber edge containment plow. In our experience, steel edge models with a trip do not work well on gravel, this includes our steel edge model. Best of luck in your search!

    I agree with Protech, a rubber edge would be much better on a stone lot. I have a boss bx 12 and use to plow a stone lot. The trip edge works well, but the spring clean up sucked. I would have to go spend the better part of a day with the loader spreading out the stone that I pushed to the back of the lot. Mind you it was a 5 acre lot, but I probably pushed up 40 to 50 tons a season. The steel edge just would take to much stone off the top,.

    Kage also offers a polyurethane cutting edge that would work great on gravel or surfaces that need protecting!
