    I need to purchase a new 8' push box this year and have decided to go with a steel edge. I am looking at the pro-tech boxes and the boss boxes. I like the looks and the price of the boss better but they do not have a pull back option. I take care of a condo complex with 80 driveways and thought the pull back option would be really handy. Pro-tech offers a pull back option but not with a steel edge.... Suggestions? Not sure which option is more important the pull back or the steel edge. Also, the boss sides are 30" and the pro-tech are 40".

    Thank you

    You could fab one up yourself, a guy here did that, looked like he just got a piece of metal and laid it on the top so he could tip the box up and pull back (like a protech) and just made it so it wouldnt flex.

    Cool, thanks for the response. What about the mold board height, do you think the 10" is enough off a difference to spend the extra money on?

    I agree with the HLA. We have a new 10' with trip edge and pull back bar. Price is reasonable. Having a trip edge is a must for us.
