    How high should you shim the shoes to set the steel cutting edge? Can a Pro-Tech with rubber cutting edge be changed to steel?

    The steel cutting edge should be flushed with the wear shoes. The best way to see this is having the pusher up in the air and running a mason line from shoe to shoe. This will ensure that the cutting edge is flush with the shoes.

    A rubber pusher can not be converted into a steel edge. The angle of attack and engineering are completely different this prevents conversion. Rubber edge can not be converted into a steel edge and vice versa

    Hope that answered your questions. Anymore please feel free to call 888-787-4766

    Rubber Edge

    Should a rubber cutting edge also be flush with the shoes?
    Also is it a good idea to rotate the edge from year to year or flip it top to bottom?:drinkup:
    Thanks

    You want the rubber cutting edge come down about a 1/4" below the wear shoe. Just enough to put the bottom edge of the rubber flush with the ground. We recommend flipping the edge top to bottom when the current side is worn down, whether that be a year or 2.
