Hey all,

Just joined the forum and have been searching around but haven't found anything regarding poly vs. steel plow wear bars. I plan on getting the Denali 72" plow. It comes with 2 steel wear bars but I can buy a poly wear bar for an extra $100 or so.

My wife and I just moved to a new house and it has a large driveway that's all sealed asphalt. This will be my first winter working a plow and I'd like to keep the driveway in as good of shape as possible.

Does anyone have experience with one versus the other? I'm ok with spending the extra money on a poly blade if it will save on the upkeep of the driveway.

Just a quick update for anyone that may have a similar question.

I ended up buying the 72” Denali plow and hardware from the HondaSXS store (GREAT BUYING EXPERIENCE, I’D HIGHLY RECOMMEND). I also ended up splurging on the poly blade made by Denali.

I just had a chance to use it earlier this week for the first time with 4” of heavy, wet, snow fall. I can’t speak to longevity yet, but the plow and blade performed flawlessly! The poly blade is very quiet and appears to be gentle on our sealed asphalt.

I’ll report back if there are any issues down the road. For now I’m one extremely happy customer!

Hey. Thanks for the mention.
Would like to see a pic of your setup when u get time.

Also sorry I missed this thread back in june. Not sure how I let it slip by.

Ya. The poly blade is needed if you dont want to scratch up your pavement. Its reversible so you get twice the use. Down side is does ware faster but should last a full season in even the most showy areas.

Thanks.
