    Anyone ever use a rubber cutting edge on a rear back drag plow? Thinking of going this route vs the steel but not sure how it would hold up and if there would be enough weight for the down pressure to work correct.

    My rear plow has hydraulic down pressure, so thats not an issue. I don't think it would really work though. Take a piece of rubber and drag it across a table or something and put some down pressure on it with your hand and see what happens. It'll bend and tend to ride up and over things rather than scrape.
     
  3. Use poly we have it on all of ours and works great.
