    today i saw a yellow plow with a curved snow deflector. instead of the typical rubber flat deflector, this one had one that was curved around to shoot the snow forward and down. not sure if it was made out of steel or plastic. Sort of like big county trucks front plow. anyone have one of these or know anything about them?
    well, im off to push more snow. payup

    I have one on my 8' straight blade. It is made by fisher for a fisher plow, called a snowfoil. It works great.

    I can kind of see how that would help for smoothness of rolling. I have one of the (semi)stiff plastic ones by Western. I really like this one because it doesn't flap and most of all, no snow sticks to it like the rubber ones.

    i have the fisher steel sno-foil on my 8 ft fisher and i love it but i think it really shines when it comes to stacking the snow you can push a pile up like a bulldozer with no spill over .last year when we had snow ha !!! ha !!! on one bigger lot that i do the piles were about eight ft tall.......not to shabby...but i think fisher is the only one that makes the steel one not universal mount either

    A search on snow deflectors will bring you someone on the site that sells rubber deflectors and has pics.

    You can get poly deflectors as well. they are stiff and light weight. Have one on my snoway. Hasn't broken, and helps immensly in stacking

    Dont buy the "plastic" one.....toooooo much curve & then when you stack it will break off at the bolt holes. I have one that was almost a complete 45degree curve...had to cut some off so that the heavier snow does not build up at the top of the blade.
