Push box on X-County truck instead of blade?

    Has anyone ever seen a x-county truck with a push box on the front instead of a blade?

    I have a International that has a 12' angle blade on the front but in parking lots most of my plowing is strait ahead into a pile.

    With a large power blade most the snow just rolls off the side and the full capacity of the blade is never even used.

    We have just been using it to wind row and then a loader with a 16' push box picks up the wind rows.

    The truck seems to have more then enough power and I didn't think a push box would be a problem.

    Anyway just wondering if anyone has any comments or advice.
