|FallLine began manufacturing Polyurethane Snowplow Cutting Edges in 1994, and has since become one of the leaders in the industry. Widely popular with airport operators for more than a decade, Polyurethane Cutting Edges have been gaining acceptance by others in the snow removal industry during the past several winter seasons as an alternative to steel and rubber edges. Polyurethane cutting edges offer several performance advantages over their steel and rubber counterparts, and can offer substantial benefits to those in the snow removal industry.
Why Use Polyurethane Cutting Edges on Snowplows?
exhibits better abrasion characteristics than rubber
and most metals.
is resilient, and therefore absorbs impacts and conforms
to the surface being plowed rather than damaging the
plowing surface, making it the ideal choice for use
on concrete, parking garages, brick, pavers, cobblestone,
or any other uneven surface.
cutting edges reduce driver fatigue and equipment wear
by minimizing blade and equipment vibration.
cutting edges are very quiet in operation, making them
ideal for use in residential areas and hospitals.
Benefits Include the above and:
regulators strongly suggest that airport snowplows be
equipped with urethane cutting edges
cutting edges can save you money in the long run. Polyurethane
cutting edges are less likely to rip out or damage submerged
lighting and pavement markings.
litter on runways-polyurethane cutting edges will eliminate
metal shavings that are encountered when using metal

With our materials, color has nothing to do with performance,
it is simply a pigment, and high visibility yellow has
been FallLine's signature color for high wear products
standard formulation is designed to excel in the majority
of applications, however if you have a severely abusive
application, FallLine has the ability to formulate a
material to suit your needs.
materials are formulated for excellent abrasion resistance,
a broad temperature range and superior physical characteristics;
such as tensile strength, tear resistance, elongation,
rebound and chemical resistance.
stocks cutting edges in a variety of sizes for most
small equipment applications.
have the ability to manufacture cutting edges to meet
your requirements, ranging from the largest airport
plows to the smallest plows for ATV's.
cutting edges can be ordered pre-drilled to your requirements;
in some instances mounting holes allow blades to be
inverted for twice the life.
Recommendations When Using Polyurethane Cutting Edges:
- We recommend using 1-1/2" thick cutting edges for most applications.
strongly recommend using 1-1/2" vs. 1" cutting edges
for plows 72" or larger.
- If skid shoes are not being utilized, a
1-1/2" cutting edge should be used.
mounting a new cutting edge, the overhang below the
moldboard should not exceed the thickness of the cutting
mounting a new cutting edge, the old steel cutting edge
or piece of flat stock steel should be mounted on top
of the new urethane cutting edge, acting as a large
