I'm jealous thing is sweet
If you know anyone that works at the county highway shop ask about buying a carbide blade they take off the big trucks doing highways. What they take off will last you forever on that rig. That carbide edge lasts forever going slow with a light plow.
I have a black top driveway and I do not use the "shoes" on my blade either. I'm with you; I think they were meant to be used for gravel driveways. Just keep an eye on the replaceable "wear bar" on the bottom of the blade. You need to replace that before you start rubbing on the actual blade. Cutting and drilling holes in flat stock is a much cheaper option than buying them from the plow mfg. Nice looking rig, btw.
Good idea. Would just have to custom drill holes.
I was looking up prices...shoe replacement costs just as much as the wear bar...which is reversable...shoes are not.
Have a concrete driveway and just use the straight blade.. haven't noticed any wear to the driveway. this is only my second winter here however.
Be advised most wear bars are not reversable.
I keep the shoes on mine as I plow the snow into my yard, which helps prevent tearing up the yard and also catching concrete edges... Without the shoes it does leave less residual snow on the driveway though. Either way works and better than shoveling...
Couldnt live without one any more. Lots of good uses.. Needed these to pull material through about a foot of water in our marsh this summer.
