Hi,

Just wondering what you guys think of something....

The rubber edge on my snowblade is sticking out of the bottom roughly 2-3". It's acting like a squeegee more than an edge - ie. there's enough unsupported rubber sticking our that it buckles. Is this normal?? Or should it be sticking out just a 1/2" or so to act as a soft edge so the blade doesn't dig in to hard, but still peel packed snow off the pavement??

Thanks,

-Jer.

The rubber on my snow push is down just enough so that the rubber flexes enough to make it bend slightly. It defiantly does not roll over like what your saying. I have no issue scraping off packed car tracks with it this way.

Hey Jer,

I think it comes down to what you want to accomplish. And it sounds like it is not doing what you want it to do. You have a couple of alternatives. On is like Brian mentioned, less material protruding from the bottom of the steel. Or stiffer rubber or plastic. It sounds like you are wanting a stiffer edge.:unknown:

How thick is the rubber? The commercial rubber edges are like 1 1/2" thick.

Maybe an inch?? I'll measure later. It's from Gator, so I'm guessing it's not up to spec.
