got my urethane edge from DINO,heres how it went.
it came in on monday, i was not at work so my dad brought it down to my shop for me(i was christmas shopping with the wife)anyway i stopped at his house before i went home and he says to me..... your thing came in today did you see it?
he says, it's pretty floppy i got my doubts if its gonna work. i replied the guys on the net says it works so it must.
i went home to look at it and he was right it is pretty floppy.
tuesday afternoon i start to install it, got my new bolts and nylock nuts and also bought a 9/16 spade bit like Dino said. did some measuring and decided i would have to have a backing plate to give some strength to the back side.
off to town to get a piece of bar stock.
picked up a piece of 3/16 x4x 7'6" and drilled everthing
to fit,that urethane stuff drills like butter with that spade bit.went on easily and plowed with it this morning.
for you non beleivers that are still out there let me tell you this thing works. i plowed gravel, grass, uneven sidewalks, backdragged. this thing works better than any steel edge.
THANKS DINO i will stamp this product with my seal of approval*****!!!!

slim jim, i put this on my snoway plow you got any ? i will be glad to answer.

plow on

Who cares what it looks like if it works as advertised? I'm not too particularly happy with the aesthetic appeal of a rusted hunk of steel hanging below the mold board. Of course, putting the old edge over the U-edge as a washer doesn't exactly hide its rusted uglyness once you do put the ugly yellow edge on.

ya i do get some funny looks with it being yellow
and the old scraper edge bolted over the top of it.
ya don't have to use the old rusty edge if ya have the ambition to build a new one with square holes for the carrige bolts.or skip the carrige bolts and use hex heads.
i used stainless bolts only cuz thats all true value had in a 3" carrige bolt.
down pressure works supberb espescially while back dragging.
the coolest thing i like is the grass you glide over as
well as uneven sidewalks.
someone else said it best.(it's like plowing with a
squege) its also very quiet.

get some rest,then wish for more gold.

The edge on my Fisher peeled up a lawn just as easily as the steel edge did ;)

Worked okay on the ice and slush we had this am, the only annoyance was it chattered over the pavement if I had it at anything more than a slight angle (very annoying). Left a washboard appearance like a single stage blower would leave. It only hangs down 1 1/2 inch from the blade. Dino, suggestions?

I was the first one in my market to use sno-wings. Got some funny looks.

I was the first one in my market to have a vee plow. Got some more funny looks.

I was the first in my market to use Pro-Tech. Go some REAL funny looks.

I'm the first one in my market to use polyurethane. I don't care about funny looks anymore.

And, nobody laughs at us anymore either. They're all using wings and vee's, and now box blades are popping up everywhere too. Shouldn't be long before yellow cutting edges are floating round us too.

this may sound funny, but I'm serious. I would be interested in getting a poly edge for my toro dingo to bolt on to the buckets edge. If you read this Dino, do you have anything that might work?

First snow here, and I did my conc. walk in front of my house and well, it was beutiful. Same time I started, a snow company showed up down the street and started on a walkway about the same as mine.

Well, I got done in about 3 mins. They, with 3 guys, 2 shovels, and 1 snow blower, got done in 15. About a inch of ice/slush, that has to be scraped. The dingo scraped it right off.

As for the edge, the steel in catching on the expansion joints a little to rough. I bet a poly blade would slide right over them.

And by the way, the guys asked me for a card and said they may have a few accounts that I could help them out on. How bout that! Only problem is, I got the airport thing and have that as my number 1 priority. Dam full time stuff!

As of this morning, mine is piled up in front of my garage, urethane notwithstanding. I could care less, its getting replaced anyway in the spring, but hey loose pavement is just that, it will succumb...

I also want to try a urethane edge. How does it work on hard pack? Does it dig in at all? Or is it more like a rubber blade in that aspect.
