    Remind me not to let you borrow one of my pushers. Lol. Might as well break it in hard and show everyone what she has.

    Pretty sure I saw a bunch of urethane blocks popping all over. :laughing::laughing::laughing:

    Nice to see someone stand behind their word. Wish more plow manufacturers would allow contractors to beat on their equipment before it goes into production. It would save them a lot of money as well.

    Haha, yeah, do that with a "big L shaped couch" and see what happens. I need to resign some contracts in April and order some live edges, this year they would have paid for themselves in salt savings

    The smallest we make is a eight foot Liveboxx. Let me see if they are willing to make a six foot over the summer.

    Paul, how much vertical travel does the live edge have? Don't know how much travel our sectionals have but just wondering how the 2 compare.

    The Liveedge has 3.5 inches of play. Once you set the box down the springs will compress about 1.5 inches. So when you start plowing you already have a down pressure on the cutting edge, just from the compressed springs. The wear life on the cutting edge is amazing because 100% of the cutting edge is touching the ground. On top of that our cutting edges have Carbide inserts adding to the wear life of the edges. The other great thing about our blades is that the bucket mount or quick attach can pivot left and right. Therefore when you are pushing and your parking lot starts to slope up or down on the left or right, the plow will actually follow. This feature adds to the vertical movement. Will try and take some pictures later this week to demonstrate, am away at a trade show in Ottawa.

    Here are some pictures of the horizontal play on the attach itself. Thats over a small distance, just imagine what that gives you over a 16 foot plow.

    Here's a good picture that shows how the individual sections not only go up and down, but they do so in a way that lets them pivot to follow the ground better than any other edge on the market.

    Hey Paul, Good pictures of the hitch oscillation. Good time to also mention the hitch is a slip hitch and also has a few inches (4" maybe?) of vertical travel in addition to the oscillation you posted above.
