    never used a poly cutting edge,however I have 170 concrete driveways to plow.No steel blades are allowed to be dropped on them.so my choices are poly or rubber.want to go with poly.but only know 1 place that sells them.AND THAT IS RUBBER CAL.I know other people make em,where do you all get yopurs how thick do you suggest I get.by the way I have a brand new 8 ft boss with full mold bar tilt mounted on a 87 k-5 blazer.Any help will be appreciated thanks all

    I would go poly for more scraping power and better life too. Rubber is marginal at best.

    Trying to make: I have heard conficting reports on U edges. I hear they are great on virgin snow but are not effective if someone drives over the snow befor you plow. I was considering using as I have a couple areas of pavers but the lots are large commercial lots and I mostly concerned about moving as much snow as cleanly as possible. Let me know how your edge works. Also if you can backdrag with it. Thanks.

    the poly edge is not working at all where I live.either is the steel edge.putting a wooden edge on will work just as well since we are not getting any snow or paydays.
