    usually a industrial supply store might be able to point you in the right direction. try googling a rubber company in your city and see if somehting pops up...example in rochester ny there is chamberlain rubber and pro-marketing. but i don't think their rubber is any better than pro-techs in all honesty

    Is it any less expensive ? enough to make it worth the hassel ?

    no actaully, pricing was around the same so i stuck with pro-tech, or course i just purchased five pushers from them this past winter, so i'm sure (or i would hope) they gave me a little bit more of a discount

    I would just go with Protechs rubber edge. I believe they used to offer a cheaper edge but no longer offer it. It wasn't very durable. Protech did alot of R&D to find out which rubber compound holds up the best. For the little bit of money you might save it's not worth the risk. IMO

    well my pro-tech rubbers have barely made it through half a season and rubbers i used to buy from chamberlain rubber (a local company) used to last a season and a half...

    That's funny...Local guys call me and say the chamberlin rubber doesn't last long at all.

    Anyhow, Pro-Tech has been using the same rubber for 13+ years. It's the one thing we haven't changed becuase so many people call to confirm that we still offer the same rubber they got when they first bought their pusher; the overwhelming feedback is that the original rubber was the best and they want to make sure they can still get it...Good thing is, is that it's all we offer.

    well, it is what it is. that's my personal experience, not saying pro-tech's rubber is garbage it's just my observation so far.
