Rubber vs Steel Cutting edge

    I recently repainted my Fisher plow and noticed the cutting edge is really "smiled" on the edges. I'm looking to replace the cutting edge with either steel or rubber.

    There's a guy on Ebay that sell these "rock rubber" cutting edges wondering if anyone has order from him? He also sells snow deflectors, I'm going to buy one to keep the snow off my windshield. I'm thinking about buying one of his rubber cutting edges and the deflector. The rubber edge is on $75 and the deflector is $25 IIRC

    I plow 5 gravel drives, 2 asphalt, and a asphalt 200x200 parking lot.I have also bid on a few mobile home parks this year I'm still waiting on.

    Think this would be a good use for the rubber cutting edge? I Also like the idea of a quieter plow thats a little easier on the truck but if steel is the way to go I'll stay with that.

    Let me know what experience others have had with rubber. I have heard good and bad things about it.

    Before you replace the edge adjust the blade mounting. If you are wearing in a smiley face you have the mount to high, get it back down to the proper height and you'll plow more snow, cleaner and with less blade wear.

    Long story short the Fisher blade I'm refurbishing I recently bought used and never operated myself.


    I'm really looking for opinions on Rubber cutting edges from people that have used them in different applications and not advise on how to operate my equipment but thanks for looking out

    No interference

    I'm just looking for more information on rubber cutting edges on Fisher plows than I could find with a search.
