    I know this is regarding Western, But they came on my Boss V plow and I like them. There are a few times I have felt it push away from the curb rather than dig in

    On my MVP plus when replacing the cutting edge I took the 2 bent center pieces and put them on the outside. Just had to do a little grinding to get the holes lined but they look good.

    I know yours is a western but my boss came with them. I think there a great idea. Sometimes I'm closer than I thought and bounce off a edge of something. Just having that wrap around guard gives me piece of mind when it happens

    I run Boss curb guards on mine....pretty happy compared to the western option. You will need a torch to cut a new hole though, sh*t is hard steel.

    I run them on my pro plus and wouldn't run without them. They really help in driveways with cobble stone edging. These bounce off instead of digging in. They take all the beating and they are replacing

    This is the main reason I love the curb guards, we do a few properties with stone curbing and the rounded edge just glides past all the uneven stones and I have never had to replace a stone.

    If all your doing is commercial with concrete curbs I wouldn't bother, I found I could scrape the curbs cleaner with the straight edge, no guard, than you can with them.
