    I just purchased a 10 Protech with a rubber edge. How much lower should the rubber be below the skid shoes. Mine is even, so with the attack angle of the rubber the back edge is only hitting the ground, so the rubber will wear right away and need to be lowered so all the rubber is on the ground. It looks like in some videos its a 1/2" - 1" lower.

    Minimum of a half inch.

    My loader operators prefer an inch, otherwise I hear complaints.

    We recommend setting the back edge of your rubber between 1/8" and 1/4" below the bottom of the wear shoe. We have seen customers run the edge at a variety of depths. Our recommendation is based on the geometry of the Sno Pusher, angle of attack, and what we've identified is the best setting for the edge to clear snow. Here is a video that explains the setting.
