Plow blade scraper addition ( for snow)
Rubber horse mat ( TSC)
OR
HDPE polymer ( McMaster-Carr )

Wish I had the fab skills ( & welder) to make a quick detach street broom for those light dry snows under 2"

What say the cognoscenti ?

Several years ago I bought some rubber on eBay that was supposed to be used on a plow edge. I installed it and it worked great until it started to crumble.
I have seen some rubber material at TSC in varying widths and thicknesses that I thought would work fine. I think that it is for use as a belt drive for farm equipment.
I have a crushed stone driveway and I will check out the material more and possibly get some before winter. As I said, it worked great until the material that had small air holes in it started to breakup.
The material needs to be able to fold under the blade when plowing forward and reduces the movement and picking up of the driveway pieces while plowing. There were some that folded the material back and secured it with thru bolts to both the front and rear of the plow edge.

If you want to go with rubber you could cut a strip from an old tire tread--cheap but a little work.

Another approach, if you have a hydravac, would be to mount the blower in the front and blow the snow off.

Hi Bart and group,
I've tried to blow light snow away with my back pack blower but it doesn't work that good unless the snow is light and dusty and then the stones go with it!!!
Did you get my email with pics?
The rubber on the blade works good as long as it is tough and flexable.

If your looking for some tough rubber belt 99 get in the phone book and find an outfit that sells stone, gravel and they screen & size their own material. Ask them if they have some old conveyer belt laying around they'll probably give it to you, its some tough stuff.
