    hey guys,
    anyone have experience using snow pushers w/ metal cutting edges that don't trip? i definitely don't want rubber but am not sure i want to buy another boss plow and a Kage for my new skid steer . are you in the "float" position as you push? i know it'll be rougher than my plow/kage setup and a rubber setup but how bad really?
    tia & happy new year,
    steve

    Its Not bad we run 10 New Hollands 185s and 10' pushers all are steel cutting Edges just make sure you have good shoes on the ends.

    taylormade,
    thanks...what pushers are you using?..so far the daniels looks good but expensive because it has a trip edge, erskine has a fixed metal edge pusher, maybe scopp dogg has steel edge , curtis can't remember, protech w/ the urethane/metal trip sorta pricey...any others w/ just a fixed metal edge i am missing?
    thanks again,
    steve

    I am running an Erskine 8" fix metal edge. I have had no problems. They seem to be very well made. Also If you go www.quick-attach.com they are having a sale now on there attachments and I think that the 8' is a little under $2000.00. I did not get the pull back edge and now I wish I would have.

    If your buying new, go for the spring trip, it's worth every penny!!

    i agree it's probably worth it but most are 4000.00+ if i was to do that ( which i might i just haven't decided) i would go w/ another boss plow and Kage

    wakesetter...thanks....i saw the erskine sale advertised on the skidsteer forum
