    Has anyone heard of this Metal Pless company?

    Here is a link. I wouldn't mind outfitting a tractor or Bi-Directional out with one of these plows and plow town roads.

    Metal Pless

    Their AGRI MAXX plows remind me of a Horst speedwing.

    I'm sure JD DAVE and a few others will comment :rolleyes: Just kidding guys

    There most commonly knows as Storm pushers....

    I dont own any pushers, but from what i seen at a landcape show they're built very well...

    They even had a sample at the show, of the steel they use (t400) or something like that, Its almost impossible to bend by hand, then they have a sample of thier competitors steel (horst) exact same diameter and dimensions in (t40) and you can bend it almost like a pop can... Thats alone really makes you think....

    I'm looking for some feedback as well...

    You might want to talk to Horst to see what steel they use instead of using the Storms salesmens word. ;)

    No I didn't my buddy that disrtibutes the Arctics took on Storm as well, so needless to say I won't be buying one. I agree they are a nice blade but too bad they don't have parallel lift.:drinkup:

    Did you guys see any WING MAXX blades at that show? If so, how well built did they look?

    The blade lifts straight up and down not in an arc like your blizzard does.

    Ah, the wording made sense, but I needed to see it.

    Thanks,
