    Edge Tamers for rear snow blade

    This might sound foolish but here it goes anyway, I use my fel and rear blade for snow removal from my long gravel driveway. Now I've read from this site about edge Tamers for our FEL, but is there anything similar for the rear blade? I'm thinking about something that would keep the rear blade off the gravel while plowing/scraping .

    What rear blade do you have? A lot of blades have optional skid shoe kits which can be added to them. Most are bolt on. If your blade does not have a kit available it is usually not that much of a job to adapt a set of skids or shoes. There have been several photos on this board from folks who have installed a DIY skid kit to their blade.

    Turf bar

    Most every one uses some thing like this on their pick up plow blades it is a piece of 2-3 inch tube with a full length slot and tabs at each end to hold it on after ground freezes they are taken off Sorry don't have picture of mine mounted this on my snow blower early on in the season MY local fabricator makes and sells a couple dozen every year

    This is a great idea, a tube slotted to fit over the edge. I have a Frontier 5060 rear blade on my 1023e. I'm also considering getting the edge timers for my FEL for use when the ground is soft. Thanks to everyone for your information.

    I was wondering if they had some sort of shoe, mine is a Frontier RB5060 blade and there is an optional skid shoe kit available, thanks for the
    info.
