    Has any one bought or used one of the new trip edge pushers? Im not really interested in the skid model but one for a backhoe. I really like the boss pusher but the boss dealer in town doesnt really want to cary it. Ive seen them on ebay for a decent price but I cant see how it would work better then the boss or artic since it doesnt have the floating end wings. It cant be worse then a rubber edge though. LOL! Im in to it just would like to hear some feed back from some one who is using one. :waving: Thanks!

    Mike, a good friend of mine got a 10' TE for his skid loader this year. If it ever snows, I can relay its performance. Hes happy with the pricing at least.

    The bx12 looks awsome, and you got to love the you tube vids of it raming a big rock!

    te stands for trip edge. New product this fall from buyers. Talk to oberson's nursery for a good deal. They have been making rubber edges for some time now and those are good.

    I was running the machine at the time. We were clearing out the lumber area of a big box store with the pusher. Its entirely flat, not a damn thing to trip the edge on and constantly it was tripping or jumping and shaking the machine. Id stop, re-level it, and keep going for another 20 feet til it chattered bad enough to stop my ipod again. The last push just before the picture, the same things were happening again. The photos above were what I saw when I backed from the pile.
    Im told the dealer is trying to convince Buyers to buy it back from my friend so they can look it over. Who knows how this will play out - it doesnt even have two full events on it!

    Thanks for the update! Sounds like it had some issues before it broke. Ok so now when it did work, did it work good?

    Hopefully your friend can get things worked out before the next event.
