Rubber cutting edge

Is it necessary to remove the pusher from the loader when not in use to prevent any damage to the rubber cutting edge if the arms on the loader settle down on the pusher over a prolonged period of time?
I've never done this, but the guy running my loader this year unhooks from it after every storm and I was just wondering if it really made a difference or not.
It's a 14 footer for what it's worth.

i have no experience with rubber edge snow pushers
however i believe that if the actual edge is not bending or becoming dis formed from the weight of th pusher box and loader arms then it should not be a big deal to leave on
if the edge is bending then maybe put a 2x4 under the outer shoes on the sides to keep the bottom of the edge off the ground

Customers will sometimes unhook the Sno Pusher from the prime mover to clear away or prohibit snow and ice buildup. Many of our customers keep the units attached throughout the season and have had no concerns or issues with damage being done because of the loader arms.

The wear shoes will also restrict how much pressure is being applied to the rubber cutting edge.

we park ours with the box tipped foward....but that depends on if your loader weeps....we have also used 2x4s at the back edges..as the rubber should only be down 3/4 of an inch
