    It doesn't trip and I'm betting it costs more then a pusher so can't really see the point in it.

    In theory a neat idea. I bet once you have been plowing ice and snow with it, and then try to go re-pin it in a different position it will be extremely tough to get it pinned with ice and snow jammed up in all the hinges.

    Neat idea. But I'm with Dave. I bet it's stupid expensive and I see no trip edge.

    I think they tried to complicate something that doesn't need complicating. Need a bucket, switch to a bucket. Need a pusher, put a pusher on. Pretty simple.

    I stand corrected. Watched the rest of the video and it does in fact have a trip style edge.

    Says it's made in New Hampshire. And yes, it shows the trip edge at the end of the video..."adjustable compression blocks".

    The main advantage I see is the 6.5 cu yd bucket. I would think that would come in real handy. Also 10' wide transport width. The thing looks seriously well made, but I can't tell how well it scrapes, wish they had shown that better.

    Looks like a pain in the ass I rather switch from a pusher to a bucket for loading.

    How hard is it to switch over on a loader? I don't know. It seems with the pushers that are chained to a bucket, that switch would be a PITA. I don't run loaders so someone school me.

    Some pushers are quick connects and some slide on to the bucket.

    The slide ones are basically 2 binders and a chain

    Our Arctics are quick hitch. Hit a button in the cab and drop the pusher, then go grab the bucket.

    A bucket mounted pusher would be more of a pain in the ass. We've got a 5 yard bucket for one of our loaders to load with.

    I called this morning just to see what they cost but haven't gotten anything back yet.

    I am curious on price. I run a boss pusher on my 721c case. It chains to the bucket and maybe takes two minutes to hook or unhook. Pretty easy.
