Best edge for backplow?

    What type of edge do people prefer on their backplows?

    I have an 8' Snowman that I have a poly edge on and am seriously thinking about switching to steel. The poly edge seems to want to float some even with the downpressure and I am thinking that steel might work better. I am only doing residential work but it is all cement and I have the wings with rubber edges so I am not worried about tearing up borders or grass.

    Thanks, Craig

    I've only used steel edges on my Daniels plows. They scrape clean. Never had any issues with steel.

    Thanks for the input.

    I switched back to a steel edge and am hoping for some snow so I can see how it works for me.
