    New poly edges just arrived today for our 16' push boxes.

    They are in 4 8' sections and will replace the rubber edges.

    How much better can those really work as far as scraping and wear compared to a rubber edge? I would consider doing that to our pushers if it really was that good.

    Where did you get the poly edges from?

    From what I see on the forums and from what the salesmen said much better than rubber.

    I had rubber for 3 years and its awful it leaves slush every where because it does not cut into the bottom layer of snow it just kind of floats.

    This poly is supposed to last longer and cut as good as steel, it has a little flex to it so there is some forgiveness if you hit something.

    Its expensive, whats in the picture was probably $2500

    Yeah, they get to be big bucks, I wanted a poly edge for my skid steer bucket and I was blown away at $400.00. It's only like 70" long.

    Yeah its expensive but supposed to only wear 1/2" over 300+ hrs.

    We replaced rubber every year at $400 per box.

    I have an arctic so I don't have that problem.....:drinkup:..... but my skid has the traditional rubber edge pusher... from what I hear the poly lasts a heck of alot more then the rubbers but I'll never know..... trading in the rubber edged push box for another arctic next year;)
