Pullback Tips and Tricks

Skid steer snow pushers are considered by many to be the most popular type of containment snowplow. Skid steers offers a great deal of versatility, able to be used for landscaping and construction applications in warm weather and then snow removal during the winter. The Pullback Sno Pusher turns your standard rubber edge snow pusher into a double threat, giving it the ability to not only push but also pull snow. Perfect for loading docks, parking spots, doorways, and other tight areas, customers simply tip the snow pusher forward and use the secondary plow edge to pull the snow backwards. As an extra benefit, the Pullback Sno Pusher can save customers time and money by reducing the need for shoveling or operating smaller snow removal equipment such as snow blowers. The Pullback Sno Pusher comes in sizes ranging from 6’ to 12’ for your skid steer.

Product Specifications

Double the Brinell rating of our standard wear shoes

Poly Shoe (UHMW) – Our Poly Shoe is a polycarbonate (UHMW) padded shoe, which is ideal for surfaces too sensitive for steel shoes. The poly material is slick and minimizes friction and wear to the plowing surface. The pads are replaceable. Great for parking garage membranes, pavers, etc.

Self Leveling Shoe – Our self-leveling shoes are designed to keep your Sno Pushers level to the plowing surface with an extra 16 inches of length. Keeping the unit level will result in a prolonged cutting edge and shoe life. Self-leveling shoes are available in both standard and Super Duty material. Keeps the Sno Pusher level and balanced, creating an even amount of pressure throughout the length of the shoe Eliminates excess down pressure on the back of the shoe Increased surface area actually increases the lifespan of the shoe.

Level Gauge – Running your Sno Pusher level ensures optimal performance of the unit and the longest possible life of your wear shoes and rubber cutting edge. Pro-Tech’s level gauge mounts to the Sno Pusher’s sideplate and is an easy and quick way for operators to know if they are running their Sno Pusher level.

Pullback Parts List


How does a Sno Pusher connect?

Loaders & Backhoes: The standard connection is a post receptacle connection. Just drive into the Sno Pusher receiver, connect your safety chains and a binder, and start pushing snow!
Skid Steers: The standard connection for skid steers is a universal coupler mount.

Can I add a steel edge to the Pullback bar?

Currently, Pro-Tech does not offer steel edges for the Pullback bar.

Can I add a steel edge to the pushing edge of the Pullback Sno Pusher?

Due to the lack of a trip edge it is not recommended to replace any rubber cutting edges with steel edges.  Without a trip mechanism, hitting an obstacle with a steel edge can damage the plow and injure the operator.

Can I remove the containment shield?

The containment shield on the Pullback bar can be easily removed without completely disassembling the other components of the edge.  Some customers prefer to remove the guards when plowing in low amounts of snow as it can improve visibility when in the pulling position.

My Pullback Sno Pusher doesn’t have a containment shield. Can I order them?

Yes!  Containment shield can be fitted on preexisting Pullback models.  To order yours please contact your local dealer or Pro-Tech.

My machine does not articulate enough for the Pullback edge to function properly.

While rare, some machines don’t offer enough articulation for the Pullback Sno Pusher to back drag snow.  If your machine is having this problem, please contact Pro-Tech directly.
