Best blade for scraping ice/sleet?

    I know all blades do a decent job at scraping snow. But I am considering retiring my 810s and moving to something newer. But I dont know what scraps as good as the PH1 Blizzards.

    We get more ice/sleet storms here than snow. 2 seasons ago I scraped a 4" of straight sleet storm. We have to plow off more sleet in a season than snow. So getting something that can deal with it is a must. Are there any plows out there that I just haven't seen that can scrap as good as the blizzard?

    Even though they are not comparable to the 810's, Blizzards, etc., the best blade for scraping ice buildup would be a belly blade.

    Fisher x-blade. I watch all the full trip plows and laugh when theyre bent over trying to plow driveways.

    Hmmm. How about something with down pressure?
