    Whats the proper way to set up a rubber cutting edge on a snow pusher?

    I am getting a slight bit of snow not being cleared....

    Some area of the lots are spot less cleaned to the blacktop, most have the snow still on it.

    Perhaps i should look into a steel cutting edge.

    When installing a new edge or adjusting, I drop the rubber/urethane about .5 inch below the skis.

    For leaving a little "film"......depending on the type of snow it is, weather conditions , how much (if any) salt is used, it is just what can sometimes happen when running urethane or rubber. But unless the pusher has a tripping mechanism on it of some sort I would not put a steel edge on it. You would be running a high risk of damaging something, JMO.

    FWIW, I will be replacing my rubber edges (when they wear out) on my pushers with urethane. They have proven to perform better than the rubber for me.
