Metal Pless LBX1036 Liveboxx - Used once

    If you know what a liveboxx is you will know that it uses the sectional cutting edge system to float with the ground and limit salt usage.

    This blade is set up for a skid steer mount, but could be swapped to another style.

    I bought this in the spring when I had a different route structure and we were going to use it more just to clean up sites as the machine was more or less a back up machine. Well, we got a lot more work this year and find ourselves using this unit as a primary unit, and we have a number of small tight lots. So I am looking for a Metal Pless Plowmaxx (with live edge) in a 7' or 8' width with wings to fit into these sites with a lower mouldboard also. I don't want to sell this box, I would rather keep it. However, I would like to avoid another capital outlay this year just to keep this around as a spare.

    The details:

    - Liveedge
    - Used for about 5 hours, the edges are still just breaking in
    - Looks brand new
    - Floating hitch system - oscillates and floats up and down and side to side


    I will grab some pictures next time I am at the shop, however, since this is basically a new blade you can see what it would look like on the Metal Pless website.

    Asking $8300 CAD ($6500 USD) plus tax if you are in Canada - dealer price $8800 CAD, if you can find one.

    If I was you, I would ask a higher price. I know guys still waiting from February for delivery of their plows.

    Thanks. I didn't want to come off as greedy but maybe we start the bids there and let the market decide?

    It's on the subject line, 1036. You'll need to get your glasses back from Grandview

    Its a model 1036, should be 10ft wide 36inch high and its a box blade not a moveable wing plow.

    I'm sure Grandview stretched them with his big head so I don't want them back.

    Hi, I know what's involved going the other way across, it's quite easy. There shouldn't be duty, but I can check with a customs broker to see. I am only about 3-3.5 hrs from you so that part is easy too.

    If you have a Passport drive over pick it and drive home. You will pay New York sales tax on entry and that's it.
