Rubber cutting edge on a Snowbear?

    Anyone have any experience with rubber cutting edges, especially on a Snowbear? My 10 year old Snowbear's cutting edge is getting very worn on the ends, got about 1" of clearance out there when the middle is just kissing the pavement.

    A replacement from Snowbear is $150, plus shipping. My local welding shop quoted me roughly the same price.

    I ran across this company:


    And their product:


    I'm not commercial, I do 5-7 driveways, mostly small, for family and friends.

    It would appear that a 1" thick, 4" high cutting blade could be had for about the cost of $42, plus shipping.

    Any thoughts?
