    looking at the first picture, the rubber cutting edges looks like they are about 1/8" thick..........
    They are probably super cheap in price, for a reason....

    I would be careful due to the cheap price. Try North Shore Truck and Equipment. They make a really nice pusher for a few hundred more. We have a few of them and have never had a problem

    I wouldn't hesitate if you have some welding skills and metal on hand, if it brakes you can stiffen it up and also put thicker rubber on if needed. For that money you can't go to wrong IMO

    How the heck can you tell that from "midwest" ?????????? :confused:

    Either way, it's kind of an "interesting" array of products the seller has. I'm sure service after the sale would be top-notch. You'll just have to wait in line behind the pewter teddy bear that needs to be soldered together...............:laughing:

    Obiously not a brand name. For sure home made. Good price, but dont expect it to hold up like a major brand one

    Haha I didn't check out what else they were selling, "would you like a pair of birkenstock sandals to go with your push box today sir?"

    This account is the main reason i want one, but I've got a few others nearby that it would work with too. Right now I'm plowing this lot with an 04 F350 powerstroke and a 8' Hiniker C-Plow.
    The blue X's are where I can put snow..... it gets hauled away quite a bit.

    You'll definately need a good rubber edge. That looks more like a deflector. No way would it move any snow. 1.5" ones fold back, imagine a piece of thin conveyor material.
