    Has anyone used a poly cutting edge on a 810 . I'm wondering how well they work and how much longer they last?

    I bought a 2-year old 810 that came with a 1-inch thick rubber edge that worked good for the first 2 or 3 times as it would not dig into the gravel or the lawns. The bad thing about that is it left alot of buildup of ice. After everything was frozen I switched it to a steel edge so it would cut the ice a little better.

    I've tried poly on my blowers. I don't know which gets chewed up faster, the snow or the poly.
    I know some people can't stand the marks left by metal, but the poly isn't worth it.

    Polar edges

    I ran the polar edges from blizzard when I first bought my 810. I liked them a lot, the only bad thing was scraping hard pack or real slushy snow. I got 3 pushes short of 3 seasons with them. Only reason I am running my steel is that the new ones know cost over $800. However I don't think my steel edges will get me through 3/4 of this season. Only have 1.5in left on only 9 pushes. WTF my wing edges are useless. I need to get to Jerry's and get some carbides.

    Thats what i am dealing with I only get one season out of a cutting edge. That starts to get expensive because I have 3 810's. I even tried using the shoes once but wore them down after a 6" snow fall. Well I am going to try one, if I can get 3 years out of one that would be good.

    about 400 hrs give or take on the last set I ran on gravel roads and rough pavement. Quiet and you can push the speeds up quite a bit if you decide to.

    As far as the steel edges. With the winter carbide additions they will last 2 to 3 times longer than the stock edges and still weight less than a set of U edges will.

    What are winter carbide additions? I haven't heard of them.
