The jury is still out on the urethane edges in my book. I can say they seem to be holding up ok on my RCS pushers, but the one I have for my ATV seems to be wearing way too fast. I'll keep an eye on it and keep everyone updated.

Yes, actually, I believe they do ... I think Pleiger makes them in black. If not them, then you might look to Advanced Urethane Solutions, that may be the one I am thinking of ... don't rememeber right now ....

MTP, CUE, and Falline all make the standard yellow and also red and blue ... depending on the wear resitant properties and blends of elastopolymers they incoperate into the product if I am not mistaken. Basically I think the color (code) is an industry standard for the wear resitance and application. Yellow is the least wear resistant ... good for your average plower (slow speed), red would be for higher speed (muni's), blue I think is the toughest and would be for say a Cat 966 scraping away gravel all day long or for a very heavy State plow truck running at 40+ MPH.

You can see how one of our U edges is mounted on a Sno Way in this pic. On the front side, there is less than an inch of urethane exposed. I get the best of both edges like this (thanks BRL) on the thicker hardpack, the steel makes contact with it, in open uncompacted areas, the U makes contact. There is just enough U exposed for the plow to go right over manholes, trench drains and the like. Even with the downpressure on.

Hey Chuck,
That's exactly what I was thinking. Plus there is more overhang in the back, so there wasn't much choice without getting a different "washer". Glad to hear my theory is happening with real world use.
