    I have a 10 foot snowplow on a F700 dump truck. The plow seems to wear the shoes or the cutting edge on the left side(drivers side). I put a new cutting edge on at the begining of winter and the drivers side is already wore an inch off yet the passenger side is not worn. What could be causing this ? Any advice.


    Thanks

    I would have to guess a slightly bent "A" frame. If it was a case of the "A" frame not being level but being straight, both sides would wear evenly.

    I assume your plowing roads with that big of a truck. So you are always plowing in the right direction. Every other storm you need to un bolt your cutting edge and flip it around so you wear it down evenly.

    Do you plow with the blade angled in one direction more than in the other direction? Did it just start to do this? Good luck - let us know.

    Wow-I'm an idiot. Didn't even think about the road plowing. :eek:
    I will still stand behind the "A" frame being level statment-for the most part. Contour of the roads will also dictate......

    Don't forget that most road have crowns in the middle and a 10' plow is much heavier.

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay...Yes I use it to plow streets. The plow is angled to the right most of the time. I used it again today and and the left side is really wearing out fast. I parked the truck in the garage and set the plow down, the drivers side is wore down and the passenger side is off the ground about 3/4 inch. I understand the roads have a crown in them but would that make that much difference?

    Thanks

    This is from the Meyer website................

    Why is my cutting edge wearing unevenly? The plow does not sit flat on the ground when fully angled. This will occur when the clevis height on the vehicle is not correct. On the E-Z Mount or Custom Mount the clevis height with a TM series plow will be 9-1/2" and with an ST or a C series plow it will be 10-1/2". The clevis height is measured from the ground to the center of the pin that connects the plow to the vehicle. On the MDII the measurement will be 11-1/4". This measurement is from the ground to the center of rear hole on clevis where the rear blue pin slides through. Note: These measurements are taken when the plow is on the ground or off the vehicle.
