    i baught a used 12ft rubber edge protech pusher used . the shopping center that I've been maintaing has multiple manhole covers and sewer covers that are high. my 9ft pro plus hits them and its like a shock throughout the truck. over and over again during the night. how will the non triping pusher handle this? should i sell it quick and try and find a tripping type? never used a loader on this site or used a pusher. any info would be great. the loader is a 3yard bucket.

    rubber edge

    the shopping center has three or four man hole covers that stick up like 3 inches granted the asphalt mounds up to them. as tall as they are it should just hit and then bounce over them? I've never used a pusher. thank you for response so quick

    You won't even know they are there. You may just leave some snow behind. I use a rubber edge pusher in a few lots that have the same issue and have never had a problem

    Mustang,

    When using our Rubber Edge Sno Pushers you shouldn't notice any considerable resistance when running over manhole covers. However, there might be a little snow left behind. Also, make sure you are not over-tightening your binding chains. If you considering a containment plow with a trip edge you might want to look into our Savik brand. Here is a video of it tripping: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN8Jy7NQv-Q
