    How well do rubber snow deflectors actually work, if at all? Also, does any one use a poly snow deflector, particularly a "boss poly deflector". It seems to me like they would break if your stacking snow and hit some ice or something else hard.

    Thanks,

    The rubber deflector on my fisher x blade makes a huge difference. It keeps all the ice and snow off the windshield. It is tough as nails and has steel threads in it, like a car tire would. I wouldn't plow without it.wesport

    I have plowed with both deflector and without, does it keep the snow off completely (long runs and fast push) no but they do help.

    I have a poly on my western. Never had a problem with pushing into piles.

    I took my skill saw and cut the tread off of a 265/75/r16 good year wrangler with a quarter tread left on it. Then drilled a length of 12 gauge 2.5" wide and 8' long, .250 holes every 6".
    Bolted them onto the plow, and this will be it's 5th year with no real damages.
    Plus it was virtually free, and looks neat with the tread on the top.

    I'm defiant, I spend money only when absolutely necessary and all my improvisations have failed. :)

    Good luck!

    Oops, I was thinking about the deflector on top off the plow. My bad!
