Time to post up how your plastic / urathane / rubber cutting edges on your grader blades are holding up!

I have 120' of concrete driveway and dont really need to scrape it with metal!

I have a 500 ft paved driveway and I also plow my neighbor's drive, which is about 200 ft. I switched from a rubber to a polyurethane cutting edge back in 2017 and it is still performing and holding up well. These pics of the urethane cutting edge were taken today. I live outside Baltimore, Md. so we do not get a lot of snow, but we have already had two snowfalls this year (about 8" total).

Inquiring minds want to know, so here is a thread that might help: My post, the first one at the top of the second page, explains the setup I use. It has served me well since I started using it in 2014 and this is the eighth season. I haven't had to adjust the urethane due to wear and all my use has been on concrete or asphalt driveways and the lawns I push the snow onto.

I can't speak from first-hand experience on gravel driveways, however, if I had a gravel driveway I wouldn't hesitate to use a urethane cutting edge.
