    Any comments or opinions appreciated. Looking for a new cutting edge and don't know much about the rubber? I've seen write ups that say they are great, better than steel... but I know they are trying to sell them too... Looking for input from those of you that have used them both and can compare... Thanks!

    They plow great as long as the snow is not packed down. They won't scrape the black top sealer or concrete and mark it up. You don't catch every crack either. But the down side is if your plowing anything that has had traffic on it or ice forget it. Hope this helps!

    I'd like to hear some answers to this also. I have heard both ways.
    I do know the rubber on the wings seem to scrape better than the blade.

    Rubber cutting edges are good for plowing gas stations, they don't produce sparks. Its a little reasurance the place wont blow-up.
