    Anyone seen these kits, I have heard of them even got part numbers from Arctic for them. But I am looking to see what they look like before I consider spending the $200 roughly for each sections kit. They are supposedly a bolt on to limit the bottom blocks overall travel and crushing forces applied to it, if I understand it right. Anyone seen these yet? any pics? Hmmmmmmm:confused:

    1olddogtwo, thanks for the reply, if possible could you post a pic or two of how they look and mount up. I have a basic idea of how they should be but would it would be nice to see a mounted pic. Now the real question is .......... did they help?

    I have not used these limiter kits...while I think they will work well and are a great idea for a company that "does not want or is willing to train their employees". My advise is to spend the money on instruction for you employees on proper use of this snow pusher. It will get you more return on your investment. Dollar for dollar...where do you want your money to go? You can give it to Arctic or keep it for your company....Who are you trying to generate money for?

    Just my two cents worth...

    I argee with that statement above.

    My computer is in for repair, if its repairable, I will post Pics. Basic they are shaped in the letter H. The bottom of the H bolts to the push beam and lays level with the ground. The Top of the H sits behind the section a few inches. While pushing there is no contact.

    I haven't seen the final design yet this year. There is a video of the machine stacking on my youtube channel.

    We do a lot of testing every season, I'm surprise no one has posted pic's of the test models. Few new toys to be released soon.

    Does this mean you will be able to exceed 6 MPH?

    I would like to see this video also. You implied in a earlier post there are changes coming to these pushers? Can you elaborate?

    I'm back home sort of. I picked up my computer last night, in Wisconsin now. tonight I'll post pics along with video. You can't see the limiters, just the unit stacking and climbing the pile.

    The pushers will be a new style.

    I use them. I think they are great for giving you a little extra ability to stack heavier/wet snow. However they are not designed to turn a sectional into a bull dozer. They will stop the moldboard from coming down when stacking fresh heavier snow and save your poly blocks. I think they are worth every penny with the right operator.

    How much are these? I think I'll put them on all mine before next season, blocks are expensive,but the most expense is the time going out and fixing them

    That's my boss right there.

    Anyway. We built our own and have chains to reduce downward motion beyond what the blocks can take and custom manufactured lower blocks. I run an LD12 on a 244J Deere with all those modifications and fresh cutting edges and rebuilt skids, the thing is only limited by my traction. I can make tight turns without fear of busting blocks and can stack so much better. It's not a bulldozer but it's also no longer a delicate little flower.
