    Maybe I'm not looking close enough, but those pushers appear to have a steel cutting egde, but no trip. There is no way in he!! I'd put something like that on any piece of equipment I owned. It's not a matter of IF you'll hit something, but WHEN. When you do, you'll wish you had a trip edge, or at least a rubber. I'd keep looking if I were you, there,s plenty of different manu's out there.

    Wellllll............. I did see that, but I I'm still assuming that with the steal edge, there's no trip. But what do I know, I'm wearing "huge coke-bottles." :laughing:

    PS, edit your post, no makey sensy! :dizzy:

    Well, I just read a thread about making the edge a trip edge out of steel tubing. Lots of brands don't have a trip edge. What brand would you recommend?

    Yes, many pushers are have a rubber edge with no trip, but the rubber does help take alot of the shock when hitting an unssen object. A non-tripping steel will not absorb the shock.

    There are a ton of pusher manufacturers out there. Protech, Avalanche, DirtWorks, are just a few that adveritise here. We have 2 Dirtworks & a Protech, all with rubber and they all do what they're intened. A steel trip would be nicer though IMO. I think Protech actually makes a model that has both rubber & steel tripping edges that merely flips over for your tastes.
