    What brand are you guys using. I have a S250 Bobcat and i'm looking into a 8ft pusher. Bobcat quoted me almost 4,000 for a protec w/ back blade attachment. Skid steer solutions want a thousand less for the same set up. Any recommendation would be appreciated. Thanks

    its all about personal preference, dealer support, and the type of application you will need the pusher for. do you really need a backdrag on the pusher? or will you be doing a HOA that a backdrag would help out? we have had a lot of success with scoop dogg pushers but others seem to bash them a bit. protec seems to be the standard around here and i'm not going to lie they make a fantastic product but the price tag is a little steep. best of luck finding a product that suits your needs

    Why havent you looked at Bobcat pushers? Should be around $3500 for an 8fter? I think they are offering some kind of 0% deal also.....

    Call my guy Tyson @ precision manufacturing in Fargo North Dakota. They make a pusher with a backdrag feature, called a sno-pro, we bought a 6ftr for our small skidsteer this year and we love it, it was a leftover, I know he had an 8ftr couple weeks back. Ours was about 1400 to our door in NJ.

    I have a few brand new "Drifter" snow pushers. Real well built by a local Mennonite company. I'll get some pics and post them later.

    section plows are the absolute best at scraping the surface as it adjusts to the curves or the road. We will never buy another type of box plow. it saves tons of salt.... TONS...

    I have several Protech pushers and a few home made. I have seen a few Arctic sectional Plows in action. Looks like the hot ticket. I will try one on my next pusher purchace. A little more expensive but does a better job.

    PM me your email address for the brochure. The 8' model 25" tall is $1900, add $850 for the optional backdrag top scraper. We can also do a bigger 32" tall 8' model, but it's more money $3000. Not sure what protech's height is. The two models I mentioned have the quick attach coupling.
