    Saw this today out looking at a landscape job down the street. Chad, if you sold these to Dean's you really should call them and remind them how to chain these things.

    Is this why people think these pushers break easily - because they cant follow directions?

    maybe its not obvious from that photo - they welded D rings to the actual frame just inside each end panel and chained from those to the bucket. Makes for great use of the slip hitch?

    I have been aware of the Artic but have never really checked it out before but watched the 'how-too' video and liked what I saw. It looks like the Artic is a 'thinking-mans' pusher. Is that 6mph the limit on skids or loaders?

    once you exceed 7 mph, a warning light goes off

    once you exceed 10 mph, a warning siren goes off

    once you exceed 15 mph, a text is sent to the snow police

    once you exceed 20 mph, the parking lot is scrapped cleaned and you just saved a boat load of salt.

    Why don't they paint them 'stealth black' then?

    I've always plowed in that 10-15mph range with a loader and now with the big wheels on the skid it's pushing also in the 10-15mph range, so is there durability issues if you are rolling like that?

    Some things I liked from the video was the back dragging ability and the ability to ride up and over on curbs and leave it clean.

    well there are some black ones, I will see if I can find a pic or two

    as far as the speed limit.....:rolleyes:

    On any given event, we run over 200 plows alone. I can't say they do 6 MPH all the time;)

    Yes, this is the thinking mans plow. You are almost better off having a new person running the box then a exp person.

    Thanks, that was pretty cool and a monster operation. A stealth black one would go very well with PowerTan!

    Does Arctic do anything in Wisconsin for snow?
