    Hi Guys,

    I have a 1/4 mile long blacktop driveway. Right near the house, I have pavers for my driveway. I'm concerned about marring up the pavers with a plow.

    I'm looking to purchase a brand new plow for my skid steer (763 bobcat). I also have a john deer tractor that would accept the skid steer plow as well.

    I'm wondering what you would recommend for the blade edge material? Should I be looking at a poly edge?

    I'd also be interested in hearing how wide of a plow you would suggest and any particular brand I should look at.

    The ability to back drag would be nice.

    Thanks!

    Man, I would keep that skidsteer off those pavers! Get the lightest plow you can with a poly edge. That should reduce chance of damage as much as possible. Use the tractor.
