    Anyone in CT or southern NY know where I can find a company to pick up some conveyor belt to use as a defelctor? I need to replace the rubber on two plows. They have seen a few year of hard use.

    Let me know where you find some. Or if anyone wishes, I will trade a 8' sno-foil for a rubber deflector. IMO Sno-foil is less than ideal for parking lots, would be better suited for long runs.

    Or you could use some old LDH used fire hose.

    They are on Laurel Rd in Rocky Hill. I drive past their place daily, but never gave em a thought since they are tucked off on a dead end street. But will stop in on Monday. Thanks for the tip.

    If I was home still I could find you guys some, but its a lot harder pulling strings from Germany not being able to "give back" to these guys anymore, ya know.

    Good Luck!

    So, I check this place out and report back, and not even a "thank you" or a "no thanks"?

    Next time you can check it out yourself...

    Try Conn. Valley Rubber

    I have used this co. many times. Great people to deal with, I work near -by so I usually walk in and tell them what I need. Usually they can provide it right there and then. They also make hoses on site. Hope this helps.JJ:)
