    I've seen that on ebay and was going to order a roll to see how it holds up. I know the dealer had some but they were alot more and I think it was 1.5" instead of 1" on ebay.

    That stuff wont last, thats why it so cheap...................Simoncx , What are you looking to put the rubber edge on? truck/plow,machine/pusher? specs? I cant imagine using anything less than 1.5 inch thick, whether its on a truck or machine.

    It's going on a truck, all driveway work, no lots. Bascially just want to limit any damage on some driveways that are older, even if it lasts me 4-5 storms it would be worth it.

    4 or 5 storms!!!! are you serious? I guess if your expectations are that low then you'll be fine!!! I am just giving you my opinion, but I think you should look for something better! Even some used conveyor belting would be better than that stuff.

    This truck is only going to be doing driveways mostly 20-60ft long, no parking lots so I don't think it will wear that quick. The guy has 1.5" edges but I have to email him what size and length I need so he can get a quote. I was hoping to find something better but most of the other cutting edges that I looked at didn't look any better and were 4-5 times the price, at $75 I was thinking it might be worth a try.
