    Thanks for the info guys, I actually have some conveyer belt
    from a local belt manufacture but it is not thick enough. I will try the junk yard. If anyone is interested I found a site related to this subject http://www.rpi.edu/~thompb3/NewPages/snoplow.html

    scott185: that's a really interesting page, well worth a look. (Studies done at RPI in New York on methods of controlling/reducing snow spray off plows. Deals with the big DOT plows but the principles are the same for smaller units) By the way, another possibility for some good heavy belting is an aggregate company, usually if there are conveyors there's bound to be some old belting nearby.
