    i bought a plate and then welder some heavy L iron across the semi circle to weld the plate to then ran angle off the top corners . I left the semi circle on for a little more lenght for stacking. I also made it so when the arms r all the way down the pusher sits level so all u have to do is use the curl to level the box . added 6" to the top, put a 8" edge on blade and 3' deep sides

    Looks really good. I bet that set up works slick with the trip edge.

    it does and it scrapes as good as a snowplow does. It just needs a paint job come spring

    Looks nice Beats them rubber edge pushers

    You should add a Cutting edge on top up front to back drag
