    Anyone use them? Any good for $220? Just got the XLS and want to take care of it to make it last. No plans of doing gravel or dirt anything. Do I need them or should I get them/worth having?!

    I bought them.
    I'm more interested in protection for "my" parking lot. Without them, the sharp cutting edge ends can gouge out parts of pavement in uneven areas like DI drains. I also have a rear gravel lot that I don't want to fight before it freezes hard. Should help poly edge life as well as keeping the steel edge from rounding out at the ends.

    If plowing other commercial lots, they are not necessary.

    Excellent guys. Thanks for the heads up. Commercial asphalt and can't ncrete lots only. So I'll be fine without them.
