    Good Evening, Our landscape company has been plowing for years, but only with straight and V blades. This year we purchased our first 10' push box...used of course....just wondering wanted some comments from experienced pushers on the rubber strip....How much lower should the strip be than the shoes? What is be best way to protect the life span of this rubber strip....It doesn't look cheap.
    Thanks,
    MATT Thumbs Up

    I think its like and 1 or 2. Below the shoes
    Watch yout down pressure. If you don't need it don't use it. Inspect the rubber constantly. If you see any issues fix ASAP
