    No experience with the scoop dog but I do have three pro tech pushers and I would reccomend them to anyone.

    Have Scoop Dogg and Avalanche, Avalanche much better IMO. No experience with ProTech. There is alot of of all (3) around here, I will be lobbying if we need more pushers for Scoop Dogg's simply because of the cost Avalanche is almost $1500 more on a 12' backhoe!

    I think they are both good, for big machines, I run Protech.

    Scoop dogg is the old RCS design. buyers bought it when they went out of buisness. Nothing wrong with it, just and older design that RCS bought/took from Protech when they upgraded to the design they use now... It's my understanding that RCS was owned byt an x-protech employee or dealer...

    The Scoop doggs are cheap though and would def. try one if I need another pusher.

    That's more or less the history. We took the idea behind the RCS product (a premium pusher) and translated it into a very cost effective, beefy pusher. Not much that can go wrong with them. We've made changes along the way, but with the thicker side plates, premium rubber edges, and powder coating, I would put it up there against anyones pusher. It's not rocket science...

    It's pretty cool watching a welding robot whip a 14' pusher around...

    I went with the 14 foot scoop dogg because it was way cheaper then the protech. The quote i got for protech 12 foot backhoe, and two eight foot pushers was more then what i payed for a 14 foot and three 10 foots!
