Replacement edge for Pro-Wing

    I put Pro-Wings on my plow after the last storm, and finally got to use them on Friday during the ice storm that we got. When I got home Saturday morning I noticed that the right side edge was completely gone! It ripped out at the mounting bolts, and the only thing left was what was behind the bolts.

    A) is it normal for the rubber edge to rip off when plowing and back dragging ice?
    B) Are there any more durable edges out there?
    C) Where can I get a new edge?

    Thanks,

    Evan

    It actually says they are 35$ or $21 for the rubber. Is that for a SET? or per peice? On angelos they are $9.95 for the rubber.

    Cheers

    Thanks everyone. I've sent an email to Jerre.

    How much more durable are the poly edges? Are they worth the extra $?

    I'ts not the edges that break, it's the mounting
    use BIG washers (or better a piece of flat steel with holes) to spread the force out.

    As you hit, it literally pulls thru the hole.

    and yeah, i wanna know more about the poly edges.

    Yup, you are 100% correct. While plowing yesterday I found my edge! I picked up some large fender washers, so hopefully I won't lose them during the 36 hour storm we are supposed to get today into tomorrow!

    Thanks for the help!!!
