    Looking for feed back for anybody that has experience with the Pro-Tech pushers. I am looking at a 10' pullback that I could use on my 410E as well as a S-300 Bobcat.

    Anybody got one? How do you like it?

    We have one that we put on a front end loader. Ours is a 16 footer though. Real easy to take on and off!:nod:

    They are the best pusher boxes out there, imo. I would not even think of getting a diffferent box. Very well built, egineering/fabrication/finish.

    What ever one you get I like how the metal trip edge scraps better than the rubber.

    we have two 12 foot avalanche pushers and they are holding up awesome. havent used any other brand, but the consensus when we were buying was that the pro techs over time will deteriorate faster.......

    Does anybody have the back pull type? They are the same as the regular pushers but can be used to pull back too. Here is a pic of one that had the pull back added after. If you oreder it from the factory it comes fully enclosed on the top/front depending upon position.

    Which pusher are you referring to John? ProTech or RCS? Or is your split personality showing up again? ;)

    I do not have any of the push\pull types of ProTechs, but I do have several of the larger ones. 1 18', 2 16', 2 folding 16' and our subs have 8' up to 12' on their skidsteers. I've been very happy with them, no problems with manufacturing quality.

    Hello
    I have a pull back pro tech pusher. its an 8' model Bought new last year from Buffalo. It is a very nice unit and seems to be holding up very well. I havent even had to flip the rubber over yet.
    Just my opinion

    Thanks
    Scott

    Its on a 773 High Flow machine. Works fine. If you get it right full of wet wet snow its tough pushing cause of traction but it gets the job done. We use it to get in tight areas in a recycling faclity we plow. Workes great in loading docks and near all the dumpsters.

    Try a set of chains on the rear tires only, you will be amazed at the difference in how it will push. We use them on our machines all the time i in the snow, with either the bucket or snowplow.

    does the chains ruin the blacktop at all? even when turning? That was always my fear.

    Thanks
