    Just picked up our "loaner" 12-ft Steel-Trip Edge pusher from Pro-tech, and finally got a chance to use it. So far so good. I think we are going to make a push for a fleet of switchblades within the next couple of years. these will definately save on the bucket cutting edges as well.

    Does that have the rubber edge with the steel facing bolted to it.

    I set up one of my custom boxes like that, and it cleans super well.

    Poly? Really? It must be the super hard stuff that arctic makes thier blocks out of.

    The polly is cut into shorter sections isn't it? Not one long piece running the length of the pusher, a few smaller lengths for smaller trips?
