    Rubber wear strip on JD snow blade?

    I have the JD 54" blade with 18" extensions. Basically a 6 ft blade. Had anyone replaced there metal wear bar with rubber? Results?
    My situation the only concrete I need to clean off is a 70'x20' drive in front of my house. The rest is a 300' rock driveway going out to the road. The metal wear bars are still in new shape since the plow is two years old and only used it twice to push snow.
    I want to clean off my driveway without damaging the concrete.

    I put one on my International Cub LoBoy and it works like a charm on concrete.

    Quite a few members here have done this. Not so much a replacement but under the steel cutting edge.

    Yep , only way to go . I have a piece 3/4" thick on my 54 and it works great . Also cushions the blow when you snag something !

    Last time I checked concrete is a hard surface ,,unless you sit and spin with chains on your tractor it does not damage your concrete using a metal cutting edge. 2 sections of our concrete drive is close to 44 yrs old , when the city water was installed they cut out a section of the upper part concrete was still 3 1/4" thick compared to the 3 1/2" when it was installed . I have used a metal cutting edge on driveway , not up on the little tiny feet .

    Used a 6" wide 3/4"thick piece of reinforced belting on each side of the blade to make blade wider. It worked but if I tried cleaning a place where it had been driven on the outer rubber edge would just float up over that part of snow. So still needed to come back and put the blade down and catch that part of snow the metal cutting edge.

    Just my 2 cents save your money

    Looks good. Looks like you cut it wide enough to be able to flip it when it wears down.

    I used belting from Tractor Supply.

    I have an Artillian rubber blade as well. The factory metal edge bolts over top of it but the rubber edge hangs down further.
