    i was just wondering what it probebly better? pro tech's or daniels? i dont think daniels make pushers. just the regular old style truck plows but in like 9 feet. but the pro tech looks like it is much beefyer. well, which would you use if you had a backhoe or front end loader? thanks,

    Daniels has a pusher called a "box plow." It has a steel trip edge. Guys with experience will tell you box plows or pusher boxes are faster than traditional plows.

    I have only seen the recommendation (positive) of one guy who has actually used the Daniels box plow. I am taking a serious look at Daniels as well as other major brands. I like the idea of the trip edge and I prefer a steel edge for scraping.

    We used the pro-tech pushers for 5 years and we were constantly having trouble with the cutting edge we tried everything even went to the ureathane edge and that was better but not great, so last year we went out and bought the new Daniels Box Plow with the steel edge, from the few times we used it I can personally say that it scraped and plowed excellent, didnt leave anything and tripped when it was supposed to. We didnt get that much snow last year that is why I dont have more to say but from the six times we used it , it was excellent . Just My two cents

    SLC1- I was referring to you.

    Although most of the guys out east use local brands, I think, judging by the quality and customer satisfaction of users other Daniels products, their box plows are a viable option for us.

    As funny as it sounds, the fact that they are not a SIMA member weighs against them in my mind. There is not much logic behind that thought, but the feeling is there, nonetheless.

    I am a sub and the company that I work for is going with a Storm wing plow, after doing the research they are sure the extra features and opions out way the cost. Let It Snow!

    Hardy anybody up here is using pushers. but there is a local metal fab shop that builds 10 1/2 ' V plows, much like a Fisher 36" high mold board, bottom trip. They're mounting them on loaders, and a couple on 100 hp farm tractors. Work great, they can carry a lot of snow in the scoop position, and have all the advantages of a pick up mounted V.

    Before you buy a pusher i think you owe it to yourself to take a close look at the RCS SNO-PRO pushers .After using most of the different pushers on the market ,we now only use RCS SNO-PRO pushers.We feel they are the best on the market. RYAN SMITH
