    Here's something new

    Watching the news tonight and of course all they're talking about is the weather, recent snowfall and related events like buildings collapsing and cars going off the road and dropping 50' into a snow drift (good thing). They were showing a clip where a tracked skid loader was using a snow push like I've never seen before. Instead of the usual pushed box design this unit had a cutaway off-road tire mounted to a back frame. So, I Googled it and found this video. Maybe I've been living under a rock but never seen this. Looks like it works great!

    But, the BAT was losing out the sides as well, just not as much as the bucket. To hear the guy talking about it, the BAT was leaving nothing on the edges, and claimed all the windrow was left by the bucket. Did not appear that way to me.

    Other than that, I cannot comment, since pushing snow is not in my job description!!

    I think the spillover from the BAT was minimal. You'll always get some. As you can tell snow removal is THE topic of discussion in the Northeast lately. Come on out and visit. We'll show you how to handle snow.

    Pretty cool.
    As i was finishing my last job up and de-mobing, i stacked 20 BATS in 30 yard roll offs.
    Seems like a neat idea, although i can't see how there's a patent pending on cutting a tire in half and bolting it to a frame.

    Wondering if they use a new or used tire? Seems like a sin to cut up an expensive, new tire. Maybe they use rejects or cases damaged beyond repair.

    I'm sure they aren't new.
    Loader and off road truck tires get bad sidewalls after awhile. Too many splits to section.
    Then it's time to trash them.

    Thank you for the generous offer, SGS, but I think I'll stay as far South as possible until things begin to thaw!!

    We've been using about this same thing built out of huge tires cut in half mounted on skid steer's for cleaning free stall dairy barns and moving snow for years, not many large dairy operations don't have them here in Wi.
