    Just had a conversation with 3 contractors that have been using the jrb pushers and man are they unhappy.Seems the design is pretty poor where the cutting edge meets the pusher is poorly attached and the pushers just copress about 2 inches of snow into the pavement creating a skating rink.Not much thought was put into this design seems like some one was looking to get the credit for a new design before they even tested it.

    Yessir... it was a design flaw. Those "contractors" you were talking to are working for us, and all the JRB pushers out there are on our sites only - and it's a good thing the units have not been sold to anyone yet. Retro fit kits are being installed on them now. Those retro fit kits solved the problem you have described easily and quickly.

    As much as you have attempted to make us look stupid with these remarks - we ain't no dummies, which is why they have not been sold to anyone until we test the 250 or so we had made for us this season....

    Didn't even know JRB was making snowpushers. Sorry to hear about your bad luck. I will say that we got a 14' daniels snowpusher at work this fall. After two storms its has been bent and twisted, this is due to the dealer not installing the 2 extra braces. The problem with the pusher is it was one of the first on the produced and sat at the dealers lot for 2 years. The good news is the dealer has ordered us a new pusher. Just goes to show that all these units can have problems.

    John hope it all works out for you in the end.

    I've used the pusher and personaly like it. Once the retro kit is on it works quite well, when adjusted right it actualy cleans pretty close to bare pavement.

    :rolleyes: HA HA HA, you have got to be kidding me, trying to make John look bad, what in the world were you thinking! Do you think he would not test a product before selling it to someone else? The man did NOT get where he is by being stupid.........look, & learn, LOL!! :D

    Thanks for the heads up on the JRB pushers.I must tell you though we only use use RCS pushers after using the other brands ,we feel the RCS pushers are the most durable year after year.Our fleet of over 70+ pushers [ real numbers] are all RCS and i am glad i made the change a few years ago when they started out.

    we have 14' home made snow pusher on our 544-G deere loader with a JRB quick coupler. the local target store used to take 2-pickups/blades and loader w/2 3/4 yd bucket 3 1/2 hrs to do on a 4" snow. now one pickup, loader with 14' blade does it in hr and 10 mins. quite a savings. the blade is bullet proof, local welding shop made it for me. will post pics of it shortly.:waving:
