    Looks like I will have a couple of contracts this year with pavers, what do you guys suggest for a cutting edge. I know I cant plow with the steel edge as that will scratch the stones. Do you recommend a rubber edge or a plastic edge? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Tony

    I was thinking about Rubber also, and I can still use this edge on blacktop and concrete driveways also?

    Take this for what it's worth I've seen guy's use p.v.c pipe they make it a little longer put caps on the end router out the middle and bundgey cord to the plow easy on easy off if you only need it for a few stops

    Rubber might mark the stones up and PVC would also mark the stones not to mention it would be brittle in the cold. I've ran a Urethane edge on a back plow with great success for sometime. Wont do too well on pealing up hard pack. Quieter then steel also. They can also make poly plow shoes. That was something I was looking at doing as I have some stamped concrete driveways. I just feather the plow for those driveways and the snow seams to slide off nicely anyhow when I back drag them.

    Just rrun the steel edge on it and you will be fine. The entrance to my shop is done out of pavers and we haven't had an issue yet. Unilock factory is just down the road and the entire lot is done with pavers. We used to plow it and never had an issue there either. They were never concerned about it right from day 1.
