    Hi Phil, I've researched about every pusher this year for our skid and for a loader. I was going to go with Artic's but the price was a bit too much. I found Steel tec, they are a knock off of Pro tech's I believe, Avalanche was a close second because they offered me a good discount but I decided on a BOSS skid steer pusher with either BOSS wings or just fab up some ends for it. I talked to a couple guys who all said if the box could move like a plow, that would be great and would make some jobs easier, also I can back drag loading docks where as a regular push box wont to that. I also decide on the BOSS set up because if I ever wanted a traditional push box set up I can add the Kage system as they are made to fit BOSS plows. I know this is kind of off your post but a steel trip edge from Steel tec is 3300.00+ tax, I can get you a great deal on a BOSS skid steer system for a lot better price. Just food for thought.

    I like trip edge pushers, used on on a loader 2nd season on a WM that we couldn't salt due to enviro restrictions. The 1st season we used a regular rubber edge pusher, the steel edge made a HUGE difference in finish. I'd go with the trip edge if the budget allowed, every time.
