Plow

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

Oaksmith, nice job on the snow edge. :thumbup1gif: 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. :thumbup1gif:

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.

Nothing fancy at a total cost of under $50
how many drill bits did you go through drilling those holes??? Cutting edge should be very hard.

Nice! I have been thinking of exactly the same thing to clean mud off my driveway and for this upcoming Snowmageddon they say we are going to get.

Well I'm happy to report that the rubber blade worked like a charm and looks the same as new after two under 4" snows!
In addition, my new Blacktop looks new.
OK where did you purchase the rubber... What is it exactly.

Looks great and should do the job. I did something similar to my blade. I used the stall matting that you can buy at Tractor supply. Cut it wit ha standard skill saw to the size I need.

RubberCal or CalRubber I don't remember! It's snow plow edging and comes in strips 4 or 6 inches wide and wider of either .75 or 1.0 and thicker

I'd very much like to know how it works for you! Here in Northwest Arkansas, we only get snow a few times a year, and rarely more than 4-6 inches at a go - not really enough to justify a real snow plow blade. If this works, I'll try something similar....

Thanks!
