    Polyurethane snow edge

    I had a rubber edge on my previous tractors rear blade but it was a little soft and floppy. I am hoping a polyurethane edge is a little better. I will use it on a 72” rear blade on my 600’ long asphalt drive. I’m hoping to just unbolt the cutting edge and bolt the snow edge on. Anybody like this setup?

    Yes, that setup is used by lots of folks. Ebay is a good source for pre-cut chunks of Urethane and UHMW Poly replacement snow blade edges.

    Heavy Hitch has some kits and if you have any problems with the install give him a call and he will get you set up. I have one and it worked great this last winter worked well on the gravel part of my driveway and I was able to get down to the bare concrete without the nails on the chalkboard effect.

    Hi dodgeman –

    We have a poly blade edge kit available on Amazon. Installation is quite simple, only requiring a bit of drilling (in your case, the drilling is probably fine) and putting together of hardware. The poly edge is 5/8” thick and can also be flipped over when one side wears out. This allows you to use it for a much longer period before having to buy a new one. Let us know if you have any questions.

    Here is the Amazon link where you can purchase one if you’re interested:

    I've tried two options with success:

    Option 1: A 1" thick polyurethane edge that was easy to drill and sandwich between the cutting edge and the blade. Worked very well while it lasted - it wore down quickly but I have no complaints for the cost.

    Option 2: A 1" thick piece of rubber cut from a conveyor belt. It also works well and came pre-drilled for my bolt pattern. It seems to be lasting longer than the first option.

    There's a vendor that sells conveyor belt in various lengths and if necessary will drill the holes for you. A few guys use this between the plow blade and then metal strap to get all the slush off the driveway.
