    We have 2 Monroe Snow Bully's 12ft for Loader. They are taller than most pusher boxes and have two braces on each side. The rubber cutting edge works great over obstacles and it really scrapes clean due to the weight.

    am I the only one in the whole world that doesn't chain the box to the loader bucket?
    I'm running a 644 deere and a 12 foot protech. I'll do the roads and big parking lots the protech, then drop it and use the regular bucket to backdrag and run lines. I just drive it into the notches, curl the bucket to pick the protech back on. don't even get out of the loader.

    does everyone else actually chain it on?????

    Chain it on

    You will the first time it slides off... That is a whole lot of weight to slingshot off the front of a loader... Chaining it on is the right thing to do...

    The chains are there for safety only. If you raise the box and it tips forward, it won't slide off and cause any injuries or damage with the chains. I've seen some guys use the binders on them, which you do not need. Simply loop and hook the chain so it's secure, but no ratcheting binders needed.
