ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Pro-Tech offers a complete line of rubber-edged Sno Pusher containment plows for snow removal. These models perform best in wet, heavy snow, which allows the rubber edge to squeegee the surface clean. Plus, with heavily supported frames and no moving parts, Pro-Tech’s Sno Pushers are engineered with durability in mind. Pro-Tech’s premium rubber edges feature an optimum balance of hardness and flexibility characteristics, and they are manufactured using a continuous extrusion process. This means the rubber resists tearing, and it upholds a tensile strength greater than 2,000 psi, which is more than twice the strength of molded rubber alternatives.
