    Is anyone running a rubber cutting edge on a 8' or larger Fisher yellow straight blade? How does it work compared to the steel ones? Wnere do you buy them from?

    Any specific reason to run the rubber blade?

    I tried one on my 6 1/2' Fisher when the stock poly blade wore down- worst mistake. It made the plow hop like crazy. I went out and bought a new poly blade, but put a steel edge behind it. These smaller blades had no shoes, so the poly blade was the shoe so to speak. This worked wonderful.

    I bought my rubber edge used from a guy that took them off of the airport plow trucks- It only cost me $35 and still had plenty of life to it.

    Some city plow guys say the city requires them and they absorb more impact. As I understand it the rubber edge is sanwiched between the trip edge and an inverted steel edge giving the rubbber support. Sounded like a good idea.
