    yes it is a thick rubber piece, and from what I've heard and read, it does a much better job than you would think. I would go with the Fisher if I were you. I think that fisher is the best plow in the whole world. A friend of mine bought the EZ-V last year and he says he will never go back to Boss, and that it's just too well engineered.

    I have had an 8 1/2 Fisher V since 2003 and have abosolutly no complaints. There is a section of rubber in the middle of the two blades so no snow is left behind. The rubber part actually scraps better than the rest of the blade. I would not hesitate to buy another. I looked at the Boss plows but didn't like 2 things. One was that it only had a 1 year warranty vs Fishers 2 year and two they only offered a full trip version of the V, Fisher has the trip edge design. In Maine we get alot of wet heavy snow and the trip edge works best IMO.

    I agree with you here.......I think the whole plow should be this rubber piece. LOL

    Maybe we should post this in the Fisher Forum!!! I am impressed wit the plow overall. I'm on my third year and the rubber is still working perfect and I plow alot of accounts. I figured I be replacing it yearly. A rubber cutting edge maybe theres a market out there!!!!!:nod: :nod:

    They're out there, but they don;t work as well when the whole blade is supported by the rubber edge as when the blade is supported by a steel edge and has a section of rubber in the middle.....they wear fast and tend to curve under the blade weight. Search for rubber cutting edges in other threads.

    I have 2 fisher 9.5V I burn up 2 sets of cutting edges per year on the truck I drive. ( Yes I push a lot of snow!) the V's don't seem to scrap as well as a straight plow, we do a lot of parking lots w/ long lanes between parked cars. the V's are 5 -6 -7 times faster I do think that fisher makes the best plows for med & light duty!!! where I got STUNG, cutting edges cost $280 a set + the rubber center piece upgrade is now a 2 piece rubber w/ steel wire reinforced add $99 for that, OUCH, the rubber snow deflector $$ OUCH again,

    BUT Hands down!!! the best plow in the world is the one that you can get fixed or get parts for at 2am
