    Decided to go get some new signs for the back of two trailers and I also had my 12' pusher lettered and I just bought a 10' pusher for my skidsteer, also had that lettered, they did the inside and the ends of both pushers. You would be surprised how long the lettering inside the pusher holds up. I have a local friend who did this with a pusher 3 years ago and its still looks great and he gets a ton of calls as he parks it out in front of a plaza he does. I will get a picture of the pusher on the loader during the next storm. We have it out on the road right now!

    That looks nice. Money well spent id say! I would amagine that should last a long time as its not rolling the snow off, but just pushing. The elements of plowing and weather might take a toll after a few years?.

    We letter our pushers. I don't use vinyl lettering though. I made a stencil and just repaint each season to freshen it up.

    Ive seen the way you stenciled on your pusher. I think the vinyl looks better though. I would hate to paint that every year. I'm putting my company info/logo on everything I own and it seems to be working very well as far as advertising and people recognize our equipment on job sites/around the area

    That looks sweet. You could try clearcoating the pusher boxes, atleast the face and ends to help prolong the lettering wearing off. Just an idea.

    Any advertisement/self promotion is always a good idea.

    my cousin lettered his 14ft loader pusher about 5 years ago now and the front looks brand new still. the side lettering is a little dinged up from building piles i think but thats not really the one people are looking at anyway

    I like how big the numbers and letters are, it really stands out and would be easy to see from the street when your driving by. Looks good, great investment!

    the company i work for put the company name and number on the side of the pusher. it held up ok but wouldnt say you could read it very well after one season

    Well I see setting up the pushers on lots right at the beginning of the season as good advertising. Once snow gets everywhere try to keep them clean and visable
