    I'm going to be putting a new cutting edge on the plow soon and obviously I'll have to put new edges on the wings too. I was wondering if anyone had ever tried putting poly edges on these? The rubber does a nice job but they chatter a bit when backdragging. I was thinking maybe the poly wouldn't do it so bad.

    Nobody? There's no way I'm the first to think of this

    Mine don't chatter. Must be an angle difference.

    Heck, try it. It can't cost much for that little bit of edge.

    I figured since we have to do new edges on the XV wings maybe I'd try it on mine. Where's a good place to get urethane or poly by the foot? I'm going to call the local plow dealers but I figured I'd ask.

    Sorry for the long delay cpw.com for the urethane if your local plow shop is out of stock

    We've done this....works much better than rubber. Get 1in thickness for prowings.
