    I've got an 8' Diamond. We only have one dealer in RI, and he wants $170. How much do you pay for your steel edges? (3/8"x6") Anyone know of a place locally to get them for a little less. Or is $170 reasonable? There used to be a place in Taunton or Rehoboth, but I think they closed shop.

    Just paid $ 150 plus tax for an 8' blizzard edge and I worked a while in RI so I know everything was more expensive out there compared to here.

    Try G-Quip in Uxbridge, MA or JJ Gregory in E. Providence. They only sell 5/8'' not the 3/8'' their $ on the 8 footers are 5/8''x8''x8' = $107.00, 5/8''x6''x8' are $81.00. These are Fisher punch, but for that kind of $ it would be worth spending an hour to redrill your moldboard.

    Just last month I paid $117 for a 9' steel edge from the local dealer. Some guys tell me they are considered high, but I like the quality of service.

    Spent $75 for a steel edge for my 7'6" Fisher. That was from a Fisher dealer (Tuck's Trucks)!

    When you post what you are paying it doesn't mean much with out the sizes pertaing to thickness and height. Allthree dimensions make it easier to compare apples to apples.

    It would push like a mule if it could get any traction. The tires that come on them(Generals) suck in the snow. We have started adding better tires to the fronts(trying Michelins on one truck and Coopers on another) and hope to see improvement. All of my bitches about the 4, F-550's I own are with the tires.

    Mine are between 50-60. I have a relative make them for me. I just give him the measurements and he does his magic.

    If anyone needs some, im sure I can get him to make a few for under $100 depending on how many he'd have to make. I would just need the measurements. It really benefit theguys in the east who pay $150+ or the guys around here even. They wanted something like $140 for a new edge from curtis.

    If your good with a torch and a welder you can make you own, if not then try Angelos, CPW, or Landscaper Pro

    Just make sure it's hardened. 3/4" or not, it'll wear like butter if it's just mild steel.

    I take it ur using regular bolts or welding another piece onto the old cutting edge?? If welding, make note TLS's comment on using mild steel, as well as, when u weld those 2 pieces together you will be making the edge very brittle!!
