Is it worth putting a shoe kit and curb guard kit on my new plow??

    I'm having my new Fisher 7.5' SD Plow installed on my truck early next week and was wondering what you guys/gals though about shoe and curd guard kits. The SD Plow has the ploy cutting edge on it if that makes any difference. I think I like the idea of having the curb guard kit. Not sure about the shoe kit though.

    Thanks, NYH1.

    can't tell you how many shoes threads I have seen on here... only a handful yes replies that I saw. Tho, most of us don't run poly edges so I don't know. As to curb guards... for steel there is no need, but for poly it might be something to consider... tho I have never seen a poly with them before. The only trucks I have seen with poly are residential plowers (like myself) and thus no need. No one plowing municipal or commercial that I have seen has poly edges but since you're not likely to be doing much for commercial or municipal with that plow, I'd say save the $$

    I would put shoes on to reduce wear on the poly cutting edge, I have shoes on all my plows and never have any issues.
