Hello all seeing how winter is around the corner probably time to look at the plow rig again. Wondering what options I could use for a cutting edge on my plow? There’s steel there now but it seams a bit hard on the pavement. Just wondering if there might be a better option like Teflon or something that would last a while and not scratch up the driveway. Thanks

Should a snow plow blade touch the ground? To provide extra-long operating life of the moldboard. A cutting edge should be 1/2" above the ground when plow shoes are used and the moldboard is in plowing position; it can be higher when used on gravel driveways. Cutting edges are also available in urethane or rubber.
Your choice though, I scrape down closer with my Bobcat blade, but I also use it to plow dirt/gravel, etc.

UHMW is common out east.

Guy that setup our plasma cutter at work was from Quebec, his winter side business was cutting UHMW cutting edges and wear bears on a CNC router table. Said it was very common and he made good money doing it.
