    Did you get the formed edges with the built in curb guards?

    Mine are great they last twice as long as the old thin ones.
    I don't use the shoes ether

    Something is not right. I got 2-1/2 years out of my last set about 47 runs and i'm on my
    11th run this season and they are worn less than a 1/8". What are you plowing ? About how long is the blade on the ground ?

    What kind of lots do you plow. For all we know you could be plowing a driveway or O'Hare international airport bye yourself.

    I was thinking the same thing...are the edges worn relatively evenly from the center out?..a pic would be helpful.
