    okay, this may make me sound really cheap but...

    Has anyone attempted Using the Old style cutting edges on the 9.2 vxt?

    My idea is keep my worn down edges on, and put the old style ontop of them, would the bolt holes line up? doing this would still have some of a center section and curb gaurd...

    I cant imagine buying another set of vxt edges for 450 bucks for the second time this year...

    your replacing cutting edges 2x's a year, do you have the right attack angle set on the truck? do you rise the plow when driving down the road? not trying to be a smart a$$ but seems a little weird you are going through 2 sets a year.

    As long as they're new enough to be punched with 5/8" holes they'll bolt on. But consider running a set of Xtenders rather than doubling up the edges, as the difference in height between the new and worn edges will reduce the effectiveness of the formed center gap coverage preventing snow from getting through.

    dealer has said the angle is correct...
    Ya, i raise my plow...

    We do ALL commercial propertys, last year i went thru 3 sets....

    so if i purchased just the old style the wont bolt right on over what i have now?
    now really concerned about a little snail trail here and there.

    "Old style" is a blanket statement because there's two styles of "old style" non formed edges. Those that are punched for 1/2" bolts and those that are punched for 5/8" bolts, which were used right up until the formed edges were released. So as long at they're the old style punched with 5/8" holes they'll bolt right on.

    They get a LOT of snow in NH, it isn't IL or IN for that matter!

    Sorry I'm on my phone and can't see locations and other info that you would see on a computer, that would make sence though.

    Fisher straight blades, normally a couple a season.......

    I understand i am burning thru these faster because when i scoop mode i feel like they wear faster....

    but at 225 a side, it hurts.....

    The old style blades will fit , but you have to drill and tap the mounting holes for the snow catcher shoe. I have done it with the plow on the truck , just needs a drill and 3/8" tap.
