This is bailer belt for round bailers. It should work great I hope.

I did something similar, only I used a discarded 13" tire from a local tire shop. I cut the tread off and bolted that to the top of the blad. Worked great. Had about $1.50 in bolts/nuts/washers and that's it.

Can you buy used belts like that Cardio? I think that would be easier to work with than a tire (frickin' steel belts zingin' my hand and the curve of the tire is something I fought with).

Go to your local gravel pit or stone quarry. They will have used conveyor belting (all different sizes) they will give you for free. It cost them to dispose of it.

Sanny I got mine for Big R and u also can get it from Ace hardware. The bolts and belt cost 14.50 not to bad. Just took a 5/16 drill bit and drilled them and it worked great.

What does the belt help with? Catching cement cracks and such?

Does it give you a cleaner surface? I like the idea...

Did you just sandwich it in between the wear edge and the plow blade?

I thought you were talking about the flap on the TOP of the blade. My bad. The blade is upside down in the pics...I'm a dork.

Great looking mod! I might do that as well, Casey! slick...

I'm not seeing how this works exactly...are you intending to use the rubber as the 'edge' of the blade in place of the metal edge? and how do you keep the rubber from bending back and just riding up on the snow (especially if it's wet and packed underneath)? Not knocking the idea, actually interested in it, just want to better understand how it works. I have a couple customers that I plow for that like their driveways 'clean', like if it were raining not snowing...so if this works better at obtaining that result I would love to try it. More info please....

Have you tested it out yet Cardio? Interested to hear how it worked. My new house has a lot longer driveway and it is quite rough (need to get some finer gravel in the spring) - wondering if this would be handy for me to try....

Hos It will bend back and I think it will work ok. I havent been able to use it because it hasent snowed since the mod. It just keeps the metle part from wearing out so fast. I have some buddies here who put the rubber on and they say it works great. I will post some picks. when we get more snow.
