    I was thrilled to have been able to launch the LiveBoxx pusher at the SIMA Symposium. Since then I put together this short video of what this plow can do. I look forward to your feedback as always. http://youtu.be/g-Tyxw-_exw :drinkup:

    WOW! Very impressive!

    How does it compare to a Horst Snowwing in cost?

    Paul your a dealer for them. They have some nice products,but over the last 6yrs. or so. Have called them for information and pricing, nobody ever there to talk to and never return my calls. So the last 4 pieces came from horst. Do you know what the problem is or they just do not want to sell in the u.s.?

    They are very close in price, when comparing simular cutting edges. If you want the LiveEdge cutting edge option there will be an upcharge.

    I am now their US sales representative, I will make sure we answer all your questions. It would make me very happy to sell you a Metal Pless.

    We certainly do.
    we have an 8, 10, 12, & 14 foot all with 36 inch high moldboard and 36 side gates (wings). These are solidly built pushers the 8 foot weighs 1470 lbs and the 14 weighs 2175 lbs.
    Metal Pless also makes a loader model the only difference is the height of the moldboard and side gates which are 42 inches. These are built in lengths of 12, 14, 16, & 18. We do not make a light duty, both sizes are built for heavy duty work. The shoes on the side gates allow for vertical movement if you should hit a curb line.

    Very interesting.

    Do you need to train operators to its different characteristics to prevent bending and folding? I see you covered the max speed already.

    No training neccesary, it works like any other pusher box just better. You can even stack snow with no issues.

    Looks sweet. I felt like I could see the cutting edge get worn down on the dry asphalt! I want one!

    Thanks for all the great comments, here is a picture of a pusher they deleivered to an airport in Quebec. This baby is 24 feet wide, with 10 foot side plates, giving it a total of 44 feet wide, when wings are fully extended.

    can it be use as a angle plow? for the wing do you need 3rd and 4th function valves?

    Yes the plow can be used as angle plow, it comes with a joystick that fits on a spare valve so you need a third valve. The joy stick is an electric 3 function that controls each wing and the power angle.

    what size plow can you fit on a L-90 or 624? the L-90 has a 3rd valve but the john deere does not but it has hydrolics to the quick coupler.

    what do they cost?

    Made the cover of InfraStructure Magazine. Thought I recognized it. Guess when you are only plowing an inch at a time you can have a pretty big plow.
