    are you plowing seasonal or per push? if you plowing per push stick with the rubber edge (you make more $ salting) , if your seasonal go with the sectional or optimus. For scraping ability you cant beat a arctic. Avalanche has come out with the Optimus pusher and that one looks really cool also.... I have the arctics but if you decide to purchase a optimus let me know how it works.....
