    Im thinking of doing this, I dont know if its a good idea or not.

    Im replacing my cutting edge within the next few weeks. alot of my driveways are anywhere from 8-10 feet wide, and they are about 80-110 feet long. Now along the driveway, the house sits, and sometimes theres a chimney in the way. So.....

    what do you think about adding like 6" of the rubber cutting edge to "overhang" the plow, that way I can brush up against the chimney, side of house, etc? Would this rubber have anychance of damaging the brick or anything like that?


    Thanks guys

    I would not take the risk.
    1. Rubber can become pretty stiff in sub freezing temperatures.
    2. If there is any existing mortar or brick damage I'll give you one guess who'll be paying to repair it.

    If you were running your blade fully angled when doing this, I think you will find that the curl in the mould board sits farther out then your cutting edge. You would run the risk of hitting the house with the middle of your plow.
