    I've got a Bobcat S150 with a Bobcat 72" snow blade. It currently has a steel edge, but Bobcat also can supply a rubber or poly replacement edge. Which one would be best for plowing snow and ice in the Northeast? Steel, rubber or poly? I only plow asphalt driveways -- some are level and others are pretty steep. One of the steeper drives is 1,500 feet long.

    i guess this is pretty much a no brainer ..the steel edge will cut packed snow and ice better than poly or rubber especially since you can apply down pressure to your plow blade.

    I agree. Does the blade trip?

    Yep, the blade does trip.
