    Where have you guys found the best aftermarket rubber for box plows?

    We have bought from Plow Rubber for a couple of years and have never had a problem.

    Are you using the 1 inch or the 1.5? We use the 1.5 on anything over 12ft. Do you notice a big difference or no?

    We bought a bunch of the 1.5" ruber from Angelo's last year and were impressed with the integrity compared to the 1". When it comes time to replace the 12' loader pushers edges, I'm fairly confident we'll be using the 1.5".

    We have ran 1.5 rubber on the 8 and 10 ft pushers with good results....but for a few bucks more we are slowly switching over to 1.5 urethane. Definitely go with at least 1.5in thickness though.

    pro-tech rubber isn't bad. our lasted 2 full seasons, one season on each side and none of them ever cracked or ripped apart.

    we switched over to poly on our pushers 10' & 14'. It was more expensive but we are scraping cleaner and it is lasting forever. with the 3 seasons on the 14' we still have enough left for 2-3 more years then we might have to flip it over and start on the other side. the 10' we have not had on it as long but it is barely worn. we did 1.5 inches on both and have been very happy. we got ours from cutting edge poly.

    We have a local machine shop make the edges for our 16' boxes.
