    looking for a new edge on my 8 footer meyers..

    now i run the stock metal edge but it has slowly began towear on the right and left side more than in the middle. i do commerical lots and drivways. im unsure about the rubber and urthane edge will they wear same.. maybe faster?? maybe slower?

    the last 2 storms we had the lots were slushy and a few had the thin layer of ice crust on top..but what about snow packed lot or tire tracks down a driveway.. i am wonder will the rubber or urthane edge get these

    i have used a rubber edge on a pushbox and it is great nice a clean but thats a little different the the blade goin side to side

    any thoughts???

    rubber edges are great for drives with paver bricks but won't scrape like a steel edge.

    They have their pluses and minuses. As was stated above, it doesn't scrape hardpack as well on pavement as steel edge, but they do clean up slush better. Also, they don't damage pavers and textured concrete like steel edge will. For your application (mostly commercial), I think you would be better off with the steel edge.
