    Is a pusher for a condo complex with winding roads and garages etc going to be much of a benefit over vplow trucks and snow buckets on a skid? Dont want to buy one to just to let it sit and to say I have one.

    I like pushers, that said, it really depends on how much you have to carry the snow. If the lot has lots of tight areas look into a back drag box. Especially if you have to do individual driveways.

    Not really tight spots but more roads and bigger areas in frony of the garages. I work by the hour so it gets into the age old question whether I am shooting myself in the foot by buying a pusher. Going to a per push is out of the question in my area.

    BANG

    If it works for you, then it cuts your time down and you make less.

    BANG

    If it dosen't work for you, then you spent the money on a box blade.

    Yeah you are right. I do get 20.00 per hour more for the pusher so it might pay. A no win deal probably.

    This is the same as leaf removal, I buy a 3k leaf loader and it makes the job go a lot quicker....I can charge a few bucks more per hour but the job is getting done faster :dizzy: Its a wash IMO, if you are strickly "by the hour" then I certantly wouldnt be buying equipment to make things go a lot faster. If you already have suitable equipment then why go further into debt?

    just a fwiw...here's a vid of a pusher at a condo complex

    hi guys,
    wanting to hear from anyone who is using the KAGE pusher on a skid steer snow plow, looks like it could be the best of both worlds but want to make sure i'm not overlooking something.
    here's a link to a video (hope it linked up)

    Great concept but what does this have to do with a SS.

    Winding roads and garages are perfect for our product. May eliminate the need for the SS all together save money and get the job done faster.

    :D
