I bought a polyurethane edge back in November and got to use it 3 times so far. I agree, some of the claims made are, for lack of a better word, exaggerated. I guess it depends on the type of weather and clearing you are doing; remember, in Dinos market area it usually gets warm enough to mix with rain every time it snows so he has a different environment than someone more inland area. They still peel up turf, though once the ground is frozen they are more forgiving than steel. They still plow up piles of gravel. Certain types of snow they do not clear as well as steel edge. I notice no difference in back-dragging ability. They are very quiet-noticeable difference in noise level. Absorb almost all vibration that was par for the course when plowing with steel edge. Can you whack a 1 1/2 inch manhole and run it over like it wasnt even there? No way, unless maybe if you have a full trip moldboard. I can see already this edge will last a looonnngggg time, much longer than a plain steel edge. Its also one of its detriments, as it hasnt yet worn all the way in to the proper angle, so it chatters excessively on dry pavement. I may run it on a table saw and cut an angle into it.Originally posted by Kent Lawns
...but if you believe all the claims about polyurethane, I have a bridge to sell you.
I'm sorry, i just appreciated Bill addressing some problems he's had with them. I know you have used them a lot ,Originally posted by plowking35
And Brian I dont appreciate the inference that I have lied in my posts about how well the urethane edge works. Everything I have written about the edges is 100% true and factual.
