    Looking for input on pros and cons of Steel tec pushers vs Protech vs Salt dogs, any information would be greatly appreciated.all three seem similar.

    I have a scoop dogg and it performs as advertised. I have not had any problems with mine and it's on its third season.

    My next pusher will have a steel edge though. I have to go over some of the packet down areas with the truck or other blade afterwards. Even with that, my profits are better than just a truck alone.

    I have two rubber edge pro tech and they work great. We send them out to move the bulk of the snow and then follow up with a truck for detail work. I have found the chained backhoe bucket type easier to use then the direct attachment type. Don't tighten the chains too tight as you want the bucket to float around a little so you keep the weight of the bucket on the front tires for steering.

    Unless you have thick ice I prefer the rubber edge as it is much more forgiving. Just doesn't do well in an ice storm, but what does....

    The company I work for just bought a protech pusher to replace one that got totalled, we've only ran it a few times since buying it but it is very well built and does a great job. I've heard a lot of people talk highly about protech and so far our pusher is exactly as advertised.

    I had a snow dogg 12' pusher, used that thing one year and sold it, i have a skid steer pusher that was made by Bradco, don't think they make them anymore, but it is the best ive found, we made a pusher our selves out of a 12' boxblade, getting along great,
