    'slag' roads are alive and well and still put in daily in many areas.

    It's a low(er) cost alternative to a conventional asphalt topped road, and in many cases has near the same service life on low traffic roads, as asphalt... and protects the subgrade and is a good sub base, should the municipality find money to cap it later.

    If you use plastic pipe run it through a table saw. As you cut it turn it a little at a time so its not a straight cut. Stays on the cutting edge without sliding off.

    makes sense that it'll hold better. my bucket's 5' wide so my plastic pipe'll be a little shorter, but how much is a little from straight cut? got a pic? thanx

    I added a 2x6 below the cutting edge and it work pretty good for the past 3 yrs.. I used a 2x6 so i could reverse it if the edge got worn down too much..

    I used 4 or 5 3/8" bolts to hold the board in place - my rear blade is homemade and doesnt have a bolt-on cutting edge.

    Papa, here is what I use. I got the piece of used rubber off a county roads snow plow. A friend of mine worked for the county years ago and gave me this piece. It was (I think 8 feet long) and I cut it down. They were throwing them in the dumpster. It had very little wear on it and for the few driveways I plow this will last a lifetime.

    Yes.. just a pressure treated 2x6 hold in place by a few bolts..

    I also added the same thing to the bottom of the FEL for the same purpose.. I use the FEL for paved driveways and the rear blade for the gravel ones in the neighborhood..

    Both will still scrape some of the sealer off the asphalt driveway in spots, BUT there is no way it can 'dig in' to the asphalt..

    A 1/2 inch in 5 feet should be good.
