    My question is about cutting edges on a 810. Trying to find out rough idea on wear before i need to replace, or how much i can run the edge down to. I spoke with Jerre the other day and had a poor connection on the cell phone with him. Gotta love Verizon. trying to find out more about the heavy duty wings or carbide wings also more info about options for the main edge. Can i use those winter equipment extenders on these? obviouslt I need to wait till new edges. I have aprox. 1.75 inch before the mulboard. and ideas on what to do with warn out wint edges to maximize life out of the main edge. any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I build custom cutting edges for the wings with 5/8" thick plate and 1" thick on the curb edge. they last a lot longer and the edges wear more even. The thicker plate helps to minimize the smile on the blade.

    I run all my blades down to 1/2" before the mold board. Sometimes even more then it is replacement time.

    The winter edges really increase the life of the edges, no problem using them on an 810. My Lopro lasted substantially longer than I expected with the winter edges. Last year, when it was time to replace them, I went with the urethane edges, and I really really like the way they plow. They're supposed to lengthen the life of the edges as well, but I don't believe they'll last nearly as long as a blade with the winter edges. I also went with the 5/8's center from Jerre. Biggest difference between them is that the urethane edges are alot more forgiving, and they glide over imperfections in the pavement/concrete like a dream, whereas the standard steel and winter edges you feel everything. It's all about the trade-off's. Either way, the standard edges leave a lot to be desired, and if all you're looking to do is extend the life of them, the winter edges are the way to go.

    I gotta look into edges. I priced replacements and almost passed out.

    The edges are more than Ive paid for any of my plows

    LOL, they do add up when there's 3 instead of 1... The aggressive attack angle also results in faster wear than some are accustomed to, but they scrape damn good, so you're saving on salt and providing safer conditions... Like I said before, trade-offs...

    AR steel is only hard on the surface, once you wear through the surface its just like regular steel.
