    Be careful. Is this material polyurethane, which would be flexible like rubber, or is it polyethylene - plastic. Two different animals.

    The biggest advantage I see with mine is that the snow doesn't stick to it. Since it slides off easier it probably pushes easier also but not sure if you could tell the difference.

    well, i went and looked at it and ended up buying it. it looks brand new. it was only the blade. my 2 steel blades are getting old and showing some rust holes. this should be a nice blade.

    ok, i will if it snows. do you do anything to the blade to keep the snow from sticking? wax, fluid film, etc?

    I think I ArmorAll'd it when I got it (used) a few years ago but haven't since.

    the poly worked very well. the snow really rolls off of it nicely. should be a good buy for $350. my steel blades are getting pretty rusty and some rust holes.

    Got any pics? I like my poly but snow still sticks to it, not as much as steel though.
