    Hey thats a benifit when you own the company, you get to drive any and all of the equipment whenever you want.

    I was talking about resi work, but a video is a great idea. Thanks I think I will incorporate that into my session.

    How much faster do you think it is using the truck with pusher than just using the loader with pusher?

    Its a tough question. The truck is considerably faster but much less maneuverable. Turing around takes lots more time in a truck. The truck can push loads of snow at at much faster speed. The loader is very strong, but automatically drops down to first gear when the push gets to heavy. That's when the truck is king, and can out plow the loader two to one, or even more depending on the length of the push. The further the push the faster the truck. As you can see at the site where I took the video, the truck is the fastest option for the long pushes.
    I will admit 16 feet makes for a very wide pusher, you really have to pay attention. I find the video makes it seem smaller then from what I see in the drivers seat.

    Your right, the pusher did not look that big in the vid.

    Alright, thats the second snow pusher I've seen (almost positive it was another Pro-Tech) with those 4 brackets on the cutting edge. Are those used to keep the rubber edge from folding forward when moving backwards with the pusher??? I'm an Avalanche guy when it comes to snow-pushers so thats why I'm so ignorant to Pro-Techs.

    Those 4 brackets you see are for adjusting the angle on the cutting edge.
