    We have a contract for a parkade roof that has a waterproof membrane on the surface...we're worried about potential damage from using a steel cutting edge. We've tried a poly-edge but it wears quickly (3 uses per side). Does anyone have exeprience with this type of thing?
    Any suggestions for an edge that will work well but not damage the membrane?

    Im not sure you are getting a good quality poly edge I have had mine for 1 plowing season plus the start of this season and have great wear with mine, how much area are you plowing per event?

    The edge we are using came from Bobcat for our 6' straight blade. The area we're clearing is relatively small (10,000sq.ft).

    we do a similar roof, and we use a sweeper to sweep it into piles, then we use a bucket to scoop the pile about a inch to the roof. we find this works great, and the customer is very happy.

    Thanks for that - we have been debating picking up an angle broom for this application.
