Preferred snow plow blade edge?

Recommended Posts

I need a new cutting edge for my plow, so i was wonder what type would work for my millings drive way? Also what is the difference between rubber and steel? And any tips for getting the old one off? The edge is so worn down that it started wearing on the moldboard and has started to wear the edge bolts down.

 Could you flip the edge upside down? I have one just about worn out that I really will not use much, but i am considering doing just that.  You may have to weld some tabs on the worn edge to get it to stabilize against the blade body

With the asphalt millings I would suggest using a steel edge again (my dad and myself have used car/truck leaf springs welded to the original edge last pic rear grader blade) but also investing in a set of skid shoes(not that hard to make as I have made some the raw metal in the pics vs the black T/WH which can still be bought from Toro) so yo can keep that cutting edge up 1/4"-1/2" above the millings surface when level ,reducing edge wear and surface media removal, Jeff.

There's a couple folks selling 1055HC in 42" on the popular auction site - no holes but the stuff can be drilled with cobalt bits . For the price , it should last the life of the blade unless you're constantly using it on concrete . I replaced the edge on the big D's 56" with the stuff in 1/2" thick - it comes pre-beveled nicely and will cut nearly anything it hits easily .

      Trying to locate a front snow plow for a 522xi. 48" or 52". The 310-8 needs replaced and I'd like to add the plow on my 522xi. Located near CLE and work transport within reasonable distance. Thanks.

      I am looking to sell my plow, it is used and has rust, but works fine, no damage. Want to sell! Email or text me for pictures.

      I’m selling a 1970 Wheel Horse GT 14 with hydraulics. Included is a 5’ wide snowplow and tire chains. Everything looks original, except for what appears to be a plastic replacement gas tank and an added light switch below the original. The body is in nice condition, mostly well-painted with a few surface rust spots. I have kept it garaged, and I think the previous owner did also.
       
      I am the third owner of this tractor; the previous owner fixed it up before I bought it 7 years ago. I have put very few hours on it in that time, probably less than 50 plowing snow. Yesterday I started it after it had sat for over a year, and it started just fine. It runs very well, with no smoke and no leaks, and the tires hold air. The hydraulics lift the plow blade just as you would expect. It worked well even when plowing heavy, wet snow.
       
      Just two minor issues I can think of: The throttle cable will retract on its own sometimes, causing you to lose speed. The hood bracket got tweaked a little, so the hood doesn’t fit very well.
       
      Pictures are shown below. I posted a youtube video so you can see (and hear!) it running.
       
      I would like $900 for it. I don’t really want to deliver, but I'm willing to deliver if necessary, within a reasonable drive from Akron, Ohio. Please PM or E-mail me if you are interested. See my profile for the tractor's web page.

      Selling a very nice 54" snow plow / dozer blade with mount and rear quick hitch. Believe this was used on my uncle's C series but I'm fairly certain it will work with a 300, 400, 500 series tractor.  Model 6 4113. I think it has original paint.  Best bet is to call: justin 410-812-1943
