Snow plow wear bars

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good cheap source or recommendations on purchasing a wear bar for WH snow plows?

Mine is a pretty wore down on one side and would like to replace it.

:omg:

Brian, is there a steel fabricating shop anywhere in your area? They should be able to whip one up from basic measurements and at a decent price. :drool: It may not be tempered steel, but if the price is right, could be worth having to replace it occasionally.

For some models the OEM's are (or were a little while ago) still available through the parts houses.

Yeah I need a little welding work done anyhow, I was just thinking there was a cheap bolt on replacement bar. Fabrication is the best anyhow...Thanks

I bought one from Parts tree a couple of months ago. $25.22 +shipping along with some other stuff. Considering your time and that these are tempered, it may not be worth much to try saving a few bucks.

Toro lists them at $31.32. Part #92-6034-03. I may be wrong but it should fit any 42 inch blade?

If it is only wore down on one side flip it over and it will be like new

It's the simplest things I seem to miss... :omg:

Yup, unless you land in the situation I did. The PO let the wear bar grind down so far it's taken out two of the mounting bolts/holes and the section of the moldboard they pass through. Still got to get that situation squared around, but that's another project for somewhere down the road! :drool:

Get a piece of 1/4" thick by 2" wide steel and drill out the holes.... you will never replace the edge again. Mike and I have been running then like this for years.

:omg: Sparky. I have a plow that's wore down to the bolt on the left side. I might have to add some metal to the plow so it will hold the scraper part on.

Mike beat me to it. Thanks Mike.

Here's the reason I ordered a new wear bar for my BD-42-71 dozer blade. Seems the po didn't think to flip it over.

Well, one reason. Here's another.

Between the rust and warped edge it wasn't getting under the ice very well. I have new steel welded in place and most of the repair work done. It's on hold due to some other projects right now, but I should have it cleaned and repainted before long.

The OEM bar is 2 1/2 inches wide so it clears the bottom edge of the blade a little more. If you don't have down pressure on them the plain steel should last quiet a long time, but if you DO use down pressure the tempered steel will make a big difference in wear life.
