    Sorry to see no one is giving you any feedback on the Pile driver. I wish I could comment, I have one in our inventory now for two years. It's just sitting there looking red waiting to be put to work. Clearly the concept is good because I see similar products being used all the time. Why don't you be the first and give us all an evaluation?

    . Do you know do they make a back Drag kit for these. They bolt on top of the pusher box and sides. Makes me wonder since you can't sell yours.

    Nothing proprietary about it, seems targeted at fanboys. How do they compare price wise to protechs? I would go with boss steel edge box

    I thought protec (some company did)licensed their design to Western.

    Either way it's the cheapest design on the market and the most least favorable edge

    Seems like they were so similar that a patent infringement lawsuit would be lost.

    I was told by a Protech dealer that they are just painted red and different stickers installed.

    Exactly, couple of minor changes made to Westerns spec. It's made by pro-tech.

    Fanboys? what do you mean? People who are Western customers? Looked at the Boss and it looked like there were new ideas when it came to that box plow.
