    I am new to this sight and wanted some input on cutting edge. I bought a used plow that has a rubber cutting edge should I change it out for a steel??

    rubber edges are used more for cobblestone brick or other fancy drives streets.

    there nice espically when the snow is wet and slushy they clean up great.. but for normal use on asphalt/ concrete id go with a steel edge

    how big is your blade? When you get the steel, do you want to sell the rubber?

    you might want to do some reserch on the polyurethane blades before committing to steel or getting rid of your rubber blades. we have a rubber blade on the bobcats box and it cleans like a dream although it is a little rough on gravel. you just have to bump up a little bit.
