    I know this topic has been talked about alot, and JD Dave said he has converted a few over.

    I have 2 truck stops that we do, and hard packed snow is driving me nuts!

    If I put a steel edge over the rubber, or just steel edge on, how is it different from scraping the lot with a bucket when it comes to trip mechanism?

    With the rubber edge, we end up staying at each lot 3-4 hours extra just scraping running from one side to the other with the bucket.

    will they allow more salt to help loosen it?

    Is this going on a pusher? I put a steel edge on mine then put the rubber back on in front of the steel. It scraped really well but still absorbed some shock when necessary.
