    On the description is says using this will cut down on plow time....I doubt that. I know nothing about them but I wouldn't drop $50.00 on it...just my .02. If you get it, please post a review though :)

    We use them on patched Moldboards all the time. First we prep and patch the moldboard then spray a light coat of sprayliner to protect he surface from further corrosion. once it's dry (seconds) we install the polyskin. You do not have to do the sprayliner step we just feel it helps protect against future corrosion.

    The cancer you have above your cutting edge is most likely a hole. If you don't patch the hole first, the this product isn't going to help, because it has to be mounted in the same area you are describing.

    As long as the structural portions of your blade are good, patch the holes in the moldboard, slap the skin on and you'll be good to go. Got a few extra seasons out of several blades this way.

    I put one on my old Unimount that I just sold. I put it on last year. It really keeps the slushy snow from sticking as badly. It also covered up my 2 rust holes. I believe that it did save some time for me. The snow rolls off much easier, and seems to roll it farther. I did one of the poly skins, and put on a set of Buyers wings. What a difference they made!

    They are about 1/16" thick. Mine held up fine. Hardly a scratch on it.
