    I used to install floor liners in the back of Dump trailers, and gravel hoppers and other machines that needed abrasion resistance.

    I have one question do you know if you where actually getting UHMW when you ordered it, HMW looks the same and smells the same but defiantly doesn't hold up the same, I've seen people sell HMW liners, as UHMW for more profits.......... I do believe the only way to tell the difference I've been told is by putting it in a pail of water to figure out the density, I don't know how accurate that is though - That info came from a Mennonite

    That also being said, I've been looking at the design of the pusher, and yes the bolt holds would move a bit and with heat the product will grow, if you put a sheet of 4'x8' on the ground it will grow a good 1/2" just with the heat of the sun, you almost have to put the pusher into the plastic like a shoe, and then hold hold it in place with the bolts, if you wanted to look at a design change sometime

    Acetal Copolymer might be suitable for the application.

    Building a splitter to handle the input is the easy part. Getting enough help to handle the output is always tough.

    I’m looking at the 9-16 for the home fire needs and sell off a few cord locally a year. It looks like good single handed machine. I’d just be the only owner on the west coast with one.
