    They are quiet, they dont turf the lawn like a metal one. They dont move the gravel like metal, but they dont do hard pack very well. Im getting around that with a back blade...Rob

    hard pack is when alot of vehicles drive over the snow and pack it down.

    Hard pack is snow that has been driven on before its been plowed.

    No they last longer then metal by far. They last up to 5 times longer then metal.

    you can get your rubber blade by the foot from www.angleos-supplies.com or just go up their. in Wixom. I used one earlier in the season before the ground was frozen, then, as the season progressed, ground froze, I just flipped the set up over, used the same bolts and plow with the steel blade now. I have noticed also that keeping the rubber blade between the steel edge and the plow itself seems to absorb some impacts when things are nudged.

    Good luck.
