    I remember reading on this site last year about something you can put on a push box to tell if its level from inside the cab.

    Does anyone know what I am talking about or know of a way to let the driver know the box is level?

    We have some new guys this year and I know I am going to see them running around with the front of the box a foot off the ground and the back touching the pavement.

    Just weld a bolt on and drill a hole in a piece of flat stock. Set the box level and mark where the flat stock should hang for level.

    I've seen an "extended shoe" on one side of the box, it is about 18 inches long, and extends back towards the machine. if the operator has it tipped back like a lot of guys not very familiar with running a pusher do it tips the box up, and it's visible from the operators seat. Scratched my head for a minute wondering why it was there.....

    Thanks for the replies, I think the Avalevel is the thing I was thinking of.

    Has anybody used one before, or know the price?
