    Yes, I know there are other threads on this topic, but I am sure one more will not hurt anyone.

    I have a Snoway St and need to change my cutting edge. I had the steel one from the factory. I do all residential work, and have cut down my work load to about 10 - 15 driveways. One of which is all pavers and lots of them, it is my biggest account, the rest of my accounts are regular driveways. I did fine with it last year, just by keeping the blade little of ground.

    I keep hearing that the poly lasts longer than steel and performs almost the same. The Snoway dealer is suggesting I go with the Rubber, because of the account with the pavers, but I am not sure of the performance and life of a rubber cutting edge. Not sure what I should get, but need to get something fast.

    Any suggestions or if you had any experience with either a rubber or poly vs steel would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx alot to all.
    Its almost here, I can smell it I mean

    Rubber will probably not scrape well at all. I'd go with the poly edge if I were you. Just the fact that it runs quieter is enough for me. It does scrape well though, and might not last quite as long as a steel edge, but it treats obstacles nicer.
