Chris - do the cutting edges come in lengths other than 54"? How wide are they?
I have a Frontier RB2184 rear blade that I've been thinking about putting on a cutting edge like one of yours. I don't mind piecing 2 of them together if necessary. The blade weighs somewhere around 450 pounds and is 7' wide.
Assuming that I could use your edges, which one would you recommend for me? I have a concrete apron that I like to keep clear. It measures about 30x60. I also have a gravel driveway that's about 400' long.
I have a buddy that's used "stall mat" from TSC on his blade, but his situation is a little different from mine. He has no concrete at his place and his blade is a light duty 5' blade from TSC. I'm a little afraid that my concrete will eat that stall mat rubber like it's nothing.
Generally I just use my single stage snow blower on the concrete apron and usually don't worry about the gravel drive as SWMBO and I both have 4WD. If the snow is deep enough/wet enough, I will get out my 3520 with a piece of ABS on the cutting edge of the FEL. It does a nice job although I generally have to replace the ABS every second snow fall. I've only had to get it out once this year.
I tried the ABS on the rear blade last year, but it did a less than impressive job on the concrete and still dug into the gravel part of the driveway. It could be that the blade is just too heavy for my snow removal. Maybe I should just pick up a light duty blade for that purpose.
You didn't think it was going to be simple, did you?
Just kidding, it's not that bad, but it would be best to do it by email and/or phone.
