This is something new to me that another member mentioned in another post. Thought it should have its own thread (as dieselshadow suggested) since I am seriosly thinking of getting a pair.
In this thread LIS Sailor posted a nice review in post #5.
Here is the Edge Tamer:
Edge Tamer | R2 Manufacturing
Looks like just the thing for us with gravel driveways using the bucket for snow removal. I've been using my bucket for 7 winters now with good success. The problem comes in the early and late winter when the ground isn't frozen yet - unless I pay close attention to the cutting edge angle I am scraping gravel. Plus when pushing back have to also pay attention so I won't tear up a lot of turf. I've become quite good at controlling my cutting edge over the years and have very little damage in the spring now but like the idea of these skid shoes.
The only thing I don't like about them is leaving the 1/2" of snow. When my driveway is frozen and have a snow pack I don't want to leave that 1/2" every time I plow. By the end of winter I'll end up with a 12" snow pack on the driveway to deal with in the spring (read ICE).
Any other thoughts on these?
