    Pros - keeps the snow from rolling up over the blade.

    Cons - keeps the snow from rolling up over the blade.

    - extra weight

    - impacts stacking, will pull snow back down.

    I would only use one for plowing roads, and roads only. Otherwise a rubber deflector is better.

    I agree with hydro 100%. The rubber ones are better then the hard plastic ones.
