    Has anyone else had any trouble with getting the center two cutting edge sections on the new MVP+ to close the gap?

    On the old regular MVP there was a rubber squeegee thing that bridged the gap, then on the first few MVP+ cutting edges I installed there were slotted bolt holes on those two small pieces that go in the center. The slotted holes allowed you slide the center pieces to the best / closest position so that snow didn't leak out and leave a streak. Now, the cutting edge kits come with round holes in those center pieces so you can't adjust them any more:realmad: I have considered having them machined to make slots but that will make them that much more money when you already almost need to sell your first born to get the kit.

    Anybody have a solution / ideas to resolve this?

    I had my buddy water jet 5/8 by 5/8 out of each inner side. Slide them together and put the "cube" towards the outer side of the slot.

    Ive pics on PS somewhere.

    I think its the blades themselves. We've replaced a couple sets over last season and the ones we took off had maybe 1/8-1/4 gap and one of the new ones was the same and the other has probably at least a 1' gap and can not be moved any closer. I was kind of pissed because now it leaves streaks all over the lots. I told my Fisher dealer next edge if its not close we're going through his entire stock until we find a good one.

    Boss sued western and that's what we got in retturned. There will be no double slotted cutting shoe

    The new MVP3 has one slot on base angle and another slot on Cutting shoe.
