Default Snowplow blade edge cover

I cant seem to find it on this forum again, or was it on another? There was a tip to cut a slot along a length of iron pipe to make a blade cover for plowing on gravel drives so the blade doesn't dig in.
Anyone remember this post or done something similar on their snow plow? what gauge pipe? does it really work well?
I don't have metalworking equipment so i'll need to draw out a good description and get a welder or someone else fabricate it for me
I got to use the plow on the 1450 the first time yesterday and the driveway at my new house is very rough and in desperate need of regrading and redoing with crushed stone in the spring...

Make sure it is in snow mode (unpinned so that it can trip). I have the shoes on mine like a "real" snow plow which help with that a lot.

Yep i have it unpinned so it can flex on the springs if it snags something, what do you mean by the shoes in the real position? if i slide a piece of pvc pipe over it should the shoes not be below the line or should they?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
