    I think he is talking about that BAT wing thing, that was around on here last winter.

    I think he is talking about the Big Ass Tire, or the loader tire converted to a push box

    I liked the whole BAT wing thing, lol. I just couldn't remember any thing of the name other than BAT, so I improvised on the rest.

    That is hilarious he is actually trying to sell that? I can agree, at least he found a use for old loader tires! How mush is he trying to sell that thing for I couldn't find pricing.

    On a 1500 cow operation we used it to scrape the alleys. When it snowed out we had about a big box store area to plow that was pretty much all gravel. It worked much better then the snowbucket we used as the material bucket. I didnt get a chance to use it on concrete or blacktop but for gravel it was top notch.

    Farmers have been doing this for YEARS.


    Actually I think its an awsome concept....and it works well.....He just wants WAY too much. My buddy has made a few of these for SS's & large ag tractors, for a fraction of the cost. I want to say his("BATMAN") pricing was as much, if not more, than what a guy could go out and get a comparable sized rubber edge protech for. Like I said, I think its a good tool, but IMO the attraction should be the "cost" over a typical rubber edge pusher.

    I have to admit that this idea intrigues me. someday when i have some time i'm gonna have to pick up a quicktach plate, tire, and some steel and maybe slap one of these together.

    I have a buddy that built one...They burned throught 6 or 7 cutting wheels on the hot saw just getting the tire in half and the quartering one half of that. Its pretty heavy and works surprisingly well. I can get pics if you guys want,
