    I try at a snow blade for my loader

    Nothing fancy at a total cost of under $50

    I think it looks nice, and should work well.

    Nothing wrong with that. I use a rubber strip on my 54" snow blade to protect my asphalt drive. KHOP

    After plowing with my loader for 7 years now, I forgot what a new cutting edge looks like!

    Nice job - looking forward to hear how it wears toward the end of winter.

    Oaksmith, nice job on the snow edge. I might suggest using a bit thicker flat bar on the bottom lip, and rather than allowing the screw heads to protrude, consider countersinking the holes so the screw heads don't wear down and become a pain to remove.

    Good thought and I considered doing just that. But I figured if I allow the screw heads or any part of the flat bar to scrap the blacktop because of the angle of the loader, it defeats the purpose of adding a rubber edge to the loader. Western Maryland luckily only gets a few snows over 6" yearly that I'll use the loader on. Most of the time I simply use a walk behind snow blower because it as quick and does a better job then I can with the loader.

    Living in Maryland with lower snow amounts I think it's just the ticket.

    I don't think it will work. A bucket blade in not on the same angle as a plow blade. So you will still dig at the snow instead of pushing the snow.
